About Amusant Vineyard and Winery
"From grape to glass, a wine is the result of navigating a decision tree with an almost infinite number of branches. Directions are chosen based on the experience and artistic beliefs of the winemaking team as they steer the process toward completion. Thus, when you are drinking wine, you are experiencing a combination of nature's bounty and the thoughts and feelings of the winemakers.
There are two couples working behind the scenes to bring Amusant wines to you: the Ehlows and the Demetres. They have been friends for years, have over 50 years combined experience in the wine business, and are absolutely passionate about wine. Before you can have as much fun making wine as they are, you have to do some serious work."
. . . It is our desire to offer unique and cutting edge packaging to the wine consumer. So if you purchase Amusant wines, you are part of the new revolution to experience the ease of opening an Amusant wine without a corkscrew! See the illustration at the top left of this page.
