Andy Erickson has been the winemaker for Dalla Valle Vineyards since 2007. One of the most accomplished winemakers of his generation, Andy is a master at making site-specific wines that embody the character and complexity of some of the world’s greatest vineyards. At Dalla Valle, Andy works alongside Naoko and Maya Dalla Valle, and Vineyard Manager Edgar Alfaro to craft beautifully aromatic wines of profound structure and elegance.
“I came to Dalla Valle because I wanted to work with this vineyard,” says Andy. “Under Naoko’s stewardship, Dalla Valle has become one of the greatest estates in the United States. As a winemaker who loves making wines with a deep and nuanced sense of place, working with a site like Dalla Valle is a privilege and a joy.”
