This dedication to the environment is evident in every aspect of the winery’s winemaking and viticulture practices.”
The stunning architecture of Andis Wines’ 17,000-square-foot winery in the Shenandoah Valley serves as a beacon to wine lovers who appreciate the beauty of winemaking. Crafted from prefabricated metal with massive canopies, the design pays homage to the craft of modern wine production. Guests often stop near the tasting room entrance to admire the Barrel Stave Wall, engraved with the names of many wine club members. Inside, they learn that this fascinating wall, fabricated from old barrel staves, shades the north side of the building, keeping the winery cool all day.

Without question, Andis Wines is a leader in the green movement. By erecting the facility in a mindful manner, the winery has exceeded California’s stringent Title 24 Energy Compliance requirements by more than 15 percent. This dedication to the environment is evident in every aspect of the winery’s winemaking and viticulture practices. The 20-acre estate vineyard, originally planted solely to Zinfandel, is also planted to Grenache, Barbera, Malbec, and Schioppettino. In addition, Andis vinifies grapes from other select neighboring vineyards.

Founded in 2009 by Andy Friedlander and Janis Akuna, Andis Wines is already a favorite among wine critics. Andis wines also have been widely recognized at major wine competitions. At the 2015 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the 2013 Semillon was named Best of Class; at the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the 2011 Estate Zinfandel won a Double Gold medal. Hand-sorted grapes fermented in small lots lead to wines that are consistently praised for their elegance, integrity, and balance.

The winery’s beautiful grounds and the facility can host weddings and corporate events for up to 150 people. On any day, Andis is a wonderful place to enjoy some family time. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch, their children, and the dog—to enjoy a game of bocce, stretch out on the lawn, and savor the non-stop vista view with a glass of their favorite Andis wine in hand.
