Those who follow their heart and passion are always such an inspiration to the wine enthusiast. Wine Country has no shortage of dreamers who have followed their lust for winemaking by risking it all to do so, and this is another story of strength and resolve to ignite your fantasies.
In 1979, Amizetta and Spencer Clark left the comfort and security of home and family in Texas to build a life encompassing their love of wine in Northern California. They found the perfect parcel for a vineyard with southern facing slopes at the tail end of Howell Mountain in Napa’s Conn Valley region. Terraced vineyards were created and Cabernet Sauvignon was planted. With beautiful views of Lake Hennessey, the winery followed shortly after and they named their project ‘Amizetta’, a family name meaning ‘love’ in Italian. The family home came soon after and the Clark’s raised their children on the spectacular property while turning out premium bold reds year after year.
Fast forward 37 years and Amizetta is a thriving vineyard and winery producing top quality, award-winning wines with the help of the entire family. A tasting room and wine cave now accentuate the estate and wine enthusiasts are welcome to visit and drink wine on this idyllic Napa Valley property.
Sustainability is in the DNA of Amizetta Estate Winery. The family is devoted to healthy practices for their wine as well as the environment. Solar panels provide all the power for the estate while the wells and springs source uncontaminated water. A wine cave, while romantic and charming, also serves as a perfect environment to store and age wines as it requires no temperature or humidity control. Along with those impressive features, the Amizetta team practices green farming in the way of natural pest prevention and green farming practices so they can avoid toxic insecticides and herbicides.
Amizetta Estate Winery is a true family operation, and a socially conscious team with a dedication to producing the best wines with sensible environmental practices.
Building on their family’s forty year history of winemaking knowledge in the Napa Valley, the Clark brothers are now embarking on their own wine adventure – Tradition Wines. The Tradition philosophy is to create the best possible blends that epitomize the unique terroirs and microclimates from select vineyards in the Napa Valley.
