Somerset is the first and only winery in Southern California to practice the Ancient Art of Terracotta Winemaking. Employing a variety of hand-crafted vessels imported from Italy, our Amphorae wines are aged in terracotta clay, the same method used by the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. The result is an array of elegant, focused, and food-friendly wines more characteristic of the grape variety and terroir than wines made with conventional methods. 


The earliest evidence of winemaking was discovered in Georgia, in Eastern Europe, where wine residue was found in an 8,000-year-old Qvevri (KEV-ree). Qvevris are giant clay vessels, made without handles, used to make wine in cool, underground locations.  

Amphorae vessels are also made of terracotta clay, but they are often smaller, and include handles for carrying them. Here at Somerset, we use both Qvevri and Amphorae vessels. 

Our Amphorae are all imported from Italy, where centuries-old traditions of terracotta-making and fine artistry are used to hand-craft each piece on the potter’s wheel. The vessels are made from the finest clay in the world and take months to make, ensuring purity and longevity.
