Opened in November of 2010, Andis Wines is a modern boutique winery located in historic Amador County in the heart of California's beautiful Sierra Foothills. Our focus: seeking out the best vineyards in the Sierra Foothills to craft delicious wines with balance, character and complexity. All of our fruit is hand sorted and fermented in small lots to promote diversity of style and varietal correctness. Using both traditional and innovative winemaking approaches, 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.
Our building is a state-of-the-art winemaking facility built with a "green" design. The spacious tasting room offers picturesque vineyard views of surrounding Amador wine country with comfortable picnic areas to spend time with family and friends.

It's hard to believe it's already been five years since we first opened our doors, and what an amazing five years they've been. We are truly thankful for all of YOU; our friends and family, old and new, who continue to make this incredible winemaking adventure possible.
We hope you can join us for our 5th Anniversary celebration! We'll have savory pumpkin soup and steamy bread to warm your bellies, special tastings of the 2010 vintage from our first year open, and bottles of bubbly for just $5.
Happy Birthday to us!
Meet our winemaker Mark McKenna and get an inside look at how Andis Wines makes delicious wines!
Beajolais Nouveau is one of wine's most storied and exciting events! Every year in France on the third Thursday of November, the very first wine from that year's harvest is released. Classically made from the Gamay grape, the fruit is left in whole clusters and fermentation occurs inside each individual berry before being pressed (a process called carbonic maceration or whole berry fermentation). After fermenting for only a few weeks, the wine is bottled and quickly released. This results in a fresh, fruity wine without bitter tannins from the grape skins.
This year we're bringing the old tradition to you! We put our own spin on things and used Zinfandel instead of Gamay (we also didn't have any Gamay), and it just so happens that the third Thursday this November is also National Zinfandel Day. Join us for our first ever Zinfandel Nouveau release and be among the first to taste the 2015 vintage! Hand bottled and individually numbered, the wine is only available in the tasting room for a limited time.
