“Âmevive is a small winery and vineyard based in Santa Barbara County. My partner and I farm a historic 10 acre vineyard in Los Olivos District AVA home to Syrah, Mourvedre, and Marsanne planted in 1971. We farm with the environment in mind using biodynamic and regenerative organic practices. We actively rotate chickens, sheep, and ducks throughout the vineyard, and we are completing our 3rd year of no till. I add nothing but occasionally minimal sulfur to my wines and they are always unfined, unfiltered, and made with intention. I like to say that I make natural wines for the classic palette. I’m passionate about the natural world, keeping the wild wild, and making tasty wines that are good for both the planet and our bodies!” – Alice Anderson, winemaker

CENTRAL COAST, CALIFORNIA
When we speak of Central Coast, CA were including numerous diverse regions from Santa Cruz down through Santa Barbara counties. This encompasses smaller areas such as Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, Monterey AVA, Paso Robles AVA, Santa Maria Valley AVA, Santa Ynez Valley AVA, and Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The Central Coast is responsible for many great value wines from a multitude of grape varietals depending on the climate within the specific designated areas. From the coastal AVA’s with influence from the fog and cooling effects, you will find Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The inland AVA’s are much warmer, like Paso Robles, so look here for outstanding Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel, or Rhône-style blends.
