THE ANDIS WINERY
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.
The fermentation room can be both heated and cooled allowing us the best control over the fermentation environment in reaction to the seasons and needs of the process.
The crush pad allows rapid processing of fruit from field to tank. The quicker grapes are processed after picking, the more character they retain.
The Barrel Room uses evaporative cooling to create the optimal environment for making wines of character.
The Tasting Room features a twenty-six foot long bar fabricated from sustainably harvested Lyptus wood and large windows overlooking the surrounding Amador Wine Country.
