Favia Erickson Winegrowers

  • “IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE A MORE FORMIDABLE WINE DUO THAN ANDY ERICKSON AND ANNIE FAVIA. As a winemaker, Andy has skimmed the absolute top of Napa's cream: Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Ovid, Dancing Hares and Arietta. Annie cut her teeth under John Kongsgaard and Cathy Corison before working out in the vineyards with David Abreu, viticulturist to the brightest stars in Napa's firmament (Harlan Estate, Bryant Family and several of Erickson's clients). Together they could probably create a 98-point wine in their sleep.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

Basic Info

Favia Erickson Winegrowers is a collaboration between Annie Favia and Andy Erickson. Our philosophy is simple: create soulful wines that express the true nature of the vineyards from which they come. We focus on finding unique vineyard sites with soils, climate and aspects ideal for growing exquisite wine grapes, and develop strong relationships with our winegrowers to perfect viticultural practices. In the winery, we carefully coax the grapes into wine. Gentle handling, minimal intervention, and strict monitoring of the wine allow our grapes to speak for themselves. Ultimately, we unite science, art and nature to produce unparalleled wines, each with its own distinct character.
