Amplify Wines

Lifelong Santa Barbara natives Marlen and Cameron Porter are the husband-and-wife team behind Amplify Wines. After initially bonding over a shared love of wine and music, they created Amplify as a natural extension of the marriage between their two greatest passions. As winemakers, they seek to amplify the voice of a site and enhance the most singular characteristics of a given vineyard, marrying a sense of place with a sense of style. Although not fans of dogma, there are certain winemaking and farming principles that are central to their beliefs: native yeast fermentations, neutral vessels for fermentation and aging, no additions of any kind besides sulfur, farming that seeks to establish a healthy ecosystem, enhancing and supporting the natural characteristics of a given place, and embracing happy accidents and letting intuition be their guide. And by following that intuition, they have created some gorgeous and authentic wines with a unique voice that is all their own.
