A Focus

On Community

Here at Amber Falls we are more than a winery; we're a community. Read more about our history and meet our family below!

Our Family Values

“How do we contribute to the community” has always guided the actions of the Amber Falls family. Will our existence and actions enrich our community and the lives of others? How will we embrace the community and enhance the lives of our employees, family, neighbors and friends. As a family owned business these values have always been important to us. Amber Falls chose to contribute and the larger community has embraced and rewarded us.

 

Community extends far beyond Hampshire and our surrounding 

Areas. Our fundraising events include, Boys & Girls Club, St. Jude Children Hospital, James K. Polk Memorial Home and many others. Donations, made possible by our loyal friends and customers, have been made to charities around the state and beyond.
