Andy Erickson is one of the most revered NapaValley winemakers and the wines he has made have been sought after from serious collectors for most of his career. He has made wines for Screaming Eagle, Harlan, Staglin, Dalla Valle, Arietta, Dancing Hares, Jonata and Ovid. This impressive pedigree helped propel Erikson into NapaValley’s winemaking elite. Collectors and sommeliers have continually been impressed with Erickson’s Favia wines since its beginnings in 2003.

Favia Erickson Winegrowers is a collaboration between Annie Favia and Andy Erickson. Their philosophy is simple: create soulful wines that express the true nature of the vineyards from which they come. We are pleased to welcome Andy Erickson with Favia Erickson Winegrowers as he shares his passion and expertise in winemaking for not only his own winery, but also wineries in other parts of the world.
