  • About
    AmByth Estate is a small, family owned and operated vineyard, winery and farm. In 2006, we became Paso Robles' first Biodynamic certified vineyard and still remain the only Biodynamic certifed winery.

    We utilize the Biodynamic method of farming to enhance our observations of nature, and use these intimate insights as tools that allow our 17 acres of vineyards to express their true character through the grapes it produces. We want our grapes to be as unique to AmByth Estate as your thumbprint is to you.

    We are Natural Winemakers: we let the grapes express themselves into wine without the aid of additives, adjustments or enhancements. The wines are made with Native Yeasts, they are foot stomped, they are aged and bottled without any added sulfites. Some are aged in barrel or Vitrified Clay Eggs, others are beautifully aged in Terra Cota Amphoras. They are Pure. They are Alive. They are Fresh.

    We have a tasting room located in the heart of Downtown Templeton and welcome walk-ins however, a reservation is appreciated. For the more adventurous, we offer Vineyard, Winery and Farm Tours just 7 miles east at our Estate.

  • Vineyard Details
    • Our vineyard land was purchased in 2000 and was previously cattle grazing hillside which made it perfect fertile land to plant our vineyard and farm Biodynamically. We have 42 acres total with 20 acres planted to vines and olive trees, 18 acres of native oal forests and the rest is our winery, house and gardens.
