Marlen of Amplify wines

  • Local Cellar 2801 22nd Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Amplify Wines are Cameron and Marlen Porter, a husband and wife team born and raised in Santa Barbara County. The exploration, and elevation, of their growing region has been their life's work. They first bonded over a shared love for wine and music, and Amplify is a natural extension of this marriage between their two greatest passions. As winemakers, they seek to amplify the voice of site and enhance the most singular characteristics of a given vineyard, marrying a sense of place with a sense of style. They believe in: native yeast fermentations; neutral vessels for fermentation and aging; no additions of any kind except for minimum SO2 in the bottling process; and farming that seeks to establish a healthy ecosystem, enhancing and supporting the natural characteristics of a given place. They embrace the happy accident, letting intuition guide their hand, with their creative spirit and palates as their primary tools. Join us as they pour their lively rosé of Counoise with hints of pink grapefruit and named after Wire's first LP "Pink Flag"; their white blend of early picked Viognier and Muscat so as to avoid higher residual sugars thus showing the masculine and feminine qualities and hence naming it after Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald, "Duke & Ella"; and their Carignane whose delicate, lithe, qualities with just a hint VU meters in the red!

Tasting is free and available anytime from 4:00 - 6:00.  Must be at least 21 years old.

Later Event: June 2
