Amavi Cellars signifies love (amor) and life (vita) through their wines, which are 100% estate, 100% Certified Sustainable, and 100% Walla Walla Valley. They are dedicated to producing estate grown wines that showcase the distinct personality of Washington’s Walla Walla Valley.
Amavi’s estate vineyards: Les Collines, Seven Hills, Pepper Bridge, Octave, Goff, and Summit View, produces some of the most sought-after fruit in the state. Vineyards are all farmed sustainably by building up the soil’s health rather than depleting it and seeking out earth-friendly alternatives to fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
Winemaker Jean-François Pellet is a third-generation wine grower born and raised in Switzerland. Working alongside his father, who has managed the same vineyard for 30 years, Jean-François always knew what he wanted to do with his life: make world-class wine. His experience and reputation for meticulous winemaking in Switzerland and Spain brought him to Napa Valley, where he worked for four years.
