Winemaker Notes

Barbera is the classic Amador grape that’s simply delicious vintage after vintage and the easiest wine choice you will make all week. No other varietal captures the beauty of the Sierra Foothills. Round and fruit forward, this vintage exhibits aromas of raspberries and cedar, a robust palate balancing dark fruit with a dash of black tea, and a bright fi¬nish. The perennial crowd pleaser, it pairs with virtually anything. Try with pizza, roast beef, or simply on its own.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Gutsy and full-bodied, this small-production wine offers more structure than usual, its bright acidity and ripe tannins in full support of the tasty red and black cherry flavors. With earth, beef and oak nuances, it will taste great with hearty proteins, especially after some cellaring. Best after 2020.

Opened in November of 2010, Andis Wines brings a modern and fresh approach to Amador County's winemaking region. Their focus: seeking out the best vineyards in the Sierra Foothills to craft delicious wines with balance, character, complexity and varietal correctness. Using both traditional and innovative winemaking approaches (have you tried wine aged in concrete?), Andis Wines have quickly garnered 90+ point scores in Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast, glowing reviews in print and online media, and placements in some of the finest restaurants in Northern California and Hawaii.

The winery building is a state-of-the-art winemaking facility built with a "green" design. The spacious tasting room offers panoramic vineyard views of surrounding Amador wine country, expansive picnic areas, a bocce ball court, daily winery tours, and wine on tap!

Sierra Foothills, California

As the lower part of the greater Sierra Foothills appellation, Amador is roughly a plateau whose vineyards grow at 1,200 to 2,000 feet in elevation. It is 100 miles east of both San Francisco and Napa Valley. Most of its wineries are in the oak-studded rolling hillsides of Shenandoah Valley or east in Fiddletown, where elevations are slightly higher.

The Sierra Foothills growing area was among the largest wine producers in the state during the gold rush of the late 1800s. The local wine industry enjoyed great success until just after the turn of the century when fortune-seekers moved elsewhere and its population diminished. With Prohibition, winemaking was totally abandoned, along with its vineyards. But some of these, especially Zinfandel, still remain and are the treasure chest of the Sierra Foothills as we know them.

Most Amador vines are planted in volcanic soils derived primarily from sandy clay loam and decomposed granite. Summer days are hot but nighttime temperatures typically drop 30 degrees and the humidity is low, making this an ideal environment for grape growing. Because there is adequate rain throughout the year and even snow in the winter, dry farming is possible.

Friendly and approachable, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from youthful, fresh and fruity to serious, structured and age-worthy. Piedmont is the most famous source of Barbera; those from Asti and Alba garner the most praise. Barbera actually can adapt to many climates and enjoys success in some New World regions. Somm Secret—In the past it wasn’t common or even accepted to age Barbera in oak but today both styles—oaked and unoaked—abound and in fact most Piedmontese producers today produce both styles.
