Winemaker Andy Erickson

“Man, I’ve got to do this. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

— Winemaker Andy Erickson, on joining Seven Apart

Andy Erickson has lived and worked in Napa Valley since 1994, and in less than thirty years, he’s built a reputation as a winemaking icon. He’s done this wine by wine, relationship by relationship, vineyard by vineyard—and he’s worked with some of the greatest in the Napa Valley.

“I haven’t taken on any new wine projects in four years, and to be honest, I wasn’t looking to,” says Andy. “But when I heard about Seven Apart, I couldn’t refuse.”

Andy strives to continually develop his winemaking and viticultural skills, and to improve the quality of grapes and wines that are crafted under his direction. As a winemaker, his goal is to highlight the character of each unique vineyard site and he’s excited to push Seven Apart’s Stags Ridge Vineyard on Atlas Peak to its limit.

Andy has a Master’s degree in Enology from University of California in Davis, and has worked with wineries in California, Chile, Argentina and South Africa. Time spent in France, including a summer abroad during university, fueled Andy’s passion for the concept of terroir.

He’s also the founder of Favia wines, which he co-owns with his wife, viticulturist Annie Favia. He brings his own winemaking team to support him at Seven Apart.

In addition to Seven Apart, his current winemaking clients include Dalla Valle, Arietta, Mayacamas, Ellman Family Vineyards, Cervantes Family Vineyards, and To Kalon Vineyard Company in the Napa Valley. His past experience includes work at Screaming Eagle, Staglin Family Vineyard, Harlan Estate, Spottswoode, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and Ovid Napa Valley.
