Barbera is one of Italy's top grape varieties, and has just recently started being cultivated in the U.S. It's known for producing wines with a lot of fruit and acid and not much tannins - and this wine definitely fits that description. One to pick up to expand your palate.
Andis is located in Amador County.
Andis Wines is a passion project created by two successful entrepreneurs from Hawaii, Andy Friedlander and Janis Akuna. In 2010, they quickly began producing some of the most interesting wines that we've tasted to date. The winery focuses on seeking out the best vineyards in the Sierra Foothills to craft delicious, complex wines. If you haven't tried wines from Amador County, these will open your eyes to the up and coming growing region outside of Sacramento. We'd compare it to Napa...30 years ago. Enjoy!More from this winery
Are the wines any good? Yes, they are and we taste every wine that is considered for our site. We seek out the best wines from the best small-producers in the U.S. and Winestyr is a collection of our favorites. Most of the wines have impressive accolades, however, don't look for "expert" ratings here - we think it's more important to buy wines you find interesting and to decide for yourself.
