About the Winemaker:
Born and raised in Jackson, Wyoming, Andy's early restaurant experience led him to San Francisco and the California Culinary Academy, where he majored in hospitality and restaurant management. Following graduation, Andy helped open Solage Resort in Calistoga as assistant food and beverage manager. While he was there, he met Winemaker Thomas Brown, and ultimately went to work for Thomas in 2008 at his Black Sears facility in Angwin. Thomas was Tamber Bey’s founding winemaker and is now consulting winemaker. Andy joined the winemaking team at Sundance Ranch as assistant winemaker to Thomas when the facility opened in 2013. He was promoted to director of winery operations in 2015 and to winemaker in 2017.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Cabernet Sauvignon, known for its bold and powerful in style, works well for similar food accompaniments. If paired properly, it can produce a highly memorable dining experience. To compliment its stronger tannins, pair with richer meats like beef steaks, beef and pork roasts, venison, lamb and hamburgers. Also serve with mushroom dishes and meals seasoned with savory herbs and pepper. Experiment with a charcuterie plate including salami, cured meats and cheeses such as aged Gouda and Cheddar, Parmesan and Gruyere.
