About Amplify Wines
Cameron and Marlen Porter are a husband and wife team born and raised in Santa Barbara County. The exploration, and elevation, of the Santa Barbara County growing region has been their life’s work. Bonding over a shared love for wine and music, Amplify is a natural extension of the 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 fermentation; neutral vessels for fermentation and aging; no additions of any kind except for minimum effective sulfur dioxide; and farming that seeks to establish a healthy ecosystem, enhancing and supporting the natural characteristics of a given place. Cameron and Marlen embrace the happy accident, letting intuition guide their hand, with their creative spirit and palates as the primary tools.
