Winemaker's Notes:

Andrew Will has struggled verbally and enologically to define their wines and those around them. They have argued for balance in the bottle and exacting viticulture in the vineyard to yield even ripeness. Yet wines, which move to the center of the international style, continue to be the light in the eyes of some.

So, what has this to with Sorella? We think this Andrew Will wine is the obverse of the preceding description or at least we have consciously tried to make it so. We seek lithe lively fruit profiles and suave tannins coupled together to form a wine, which is at the same time memorable and able to be identified as a Washington wine. Andrew Will is trying to offer purity and balance in this wine. They are working hard and we hope that you find something memorable.

About Andrew Will Winery:

Andrew Will Winery was started in 1989 and is owned by Chris Camarda. The winery was launched out of a love for wine that Chris developed while working in the restaurant trade for almost 20 years. Named after his son Will and nephew Andrew, Andrew Will has been a major contributor in putting Washington State on the map as a world-class wine-producing region.

Andrew Will wines are labeled by vineyard with each wine a different makeup of the Bordeaux varietals. These vineyards, all in the Columbia Valley, include Camarda's own estate Two Blondes. He is part owner of the Champoux Vineyard and sources from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard.
