Amphora Winery owner/winemaker (and resident potter) Rick
Hutchinson chose the name in honor of the clay wine jars of the
ancient world. Rick’s philosophy, “Work year round with knowledge
and passion to transform the best grapes into rich, delicious wines
that are truly works of art” comes through in every wine he produces.
After more than thirty vintages in Dry Creek Valley, his portfolio of
small-lot wines includes more than a dozen varietals, embracing the
appellation’s exemplary Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, while reimagining
Old World rarities from the Rhone, Italy and Spain.
