Barbera is an Italian grape variety that made its way to Amador County during the Gold Rush of the 1850’s and still thrives here today. The variety’s natural acidity and deep color make it a great option for blends but also a wonderful stand-alone wine with characteristics of cherry, raspberry and vanilla. This crisp, lip-smacking red wine has lots of red fruit flavors, light to medium body and good balance. It’s an appetizing mealtime wine that doesn’t steal the show.
Andis Wines was established in 2010 as a forward-thinking winery built with a green design. Our building is modern in look with a focus on sustainability and respect for the environment. We source fruit from the Estate as well as some of the best vineyards in the region to produce exceptional wines of character and varietal correctness.
Andis Wines is a 22,000 square foot state of the art winemaking facility designed under two tenets: 1) Design a winery that can make great wine, and 2) Make it pretty. Andy and Janis worked hand-in-hand with Sage Architecture for well over a year to come to a design that would achieve that goal.
