Andis Wines is a boutique winery founded in 2010 by Andy Friedlander and Janis Akuna, two entrepreneurs from Hawaii. Located in Amador County in the Sierra foothills, they purchased Andis vineyard with its 35+ year old vines, with the goal to “craft delicious wines with balance, character and complexity”. Currently they dry farm 25 acres of vineyards and have established long-term relationships with small, local growers in both Amador and El Dorado counties to purchase additional grapes. Their dominant belief is that “wine is one of life’s kindest pleasures; while we have an amazing time filling these bottles, it’s our hope that you have an even greater time getting them empty”.
A spectacular example of the alluring characteristics of Primitivo, with jammy black cherry and blueberry flavours drizzled with sweet caramel notes, intersected by silky smooth tannins. Spicy pink peppercorn, cigar box spice, dried herbs and plush dark chocolate lingered tantalizingly between each sip. A perfect balance of dense fruit, silky tannins and cozy spices that will keep you reaching for more.
