Wine Pairing from
AMI portfolio  
Overlook Chardonnay  
Rich lobster dishes call for a richer Chardonnay. Landmark Vineyards Overlook Chardonnay has a bright, medium gold color with complex aromas of ripe pear, Meyer lemon, sage and lemon curd. On the palate flavors of quince, pear blossom, apricot, and pie crust are balanced by lively citrus notes.



New Addition to the AMI Wines Portfolion  

Rooted in a rich history of agriculture, Landmark Vineyards was founded in 1974 by a group that includes Damaris Deere Ford, great-great-granddaughter of John Deere, inventor of the first steel plow.
The winery is located in beautiful Sonoma County , but sources from all over California, focusing on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.



At the beginning of 2014 Thierry Leduc, Chairman of AMI, reflected on the success of his team. This led him to think about what the core values of the company are. He came up with 9 of these core values and combined them with some of his favorite quotes. He then commissioned artist Gildas Coudrais to design the images that would properly express them. The values are rooted in humility. Being humble and passionate about what we do is the foundation of AMI's success.  Throughout 2015, AMI will be sharing these values in upcoming newsletters.
