Andrew Wisniewski

Not everything about wine is better with age…

 

While his charming good looks and 20-something style might fool some, Andrew brings to Swiftwater over a decade of winemaking experience spanning the globe. He has worked in winemaking capacities in Florida, New Zealand, Australia and most recently Oregon, where he spent 5 years as Cellar Master for the Stoller Family Estate (2014 Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year).

During his tenure at Stoller, he crafted wines that consistently earned acclaim and accolades from publications such as Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate. His approach to winemaking is visceral, and he takes pride in becoming interwoven to the fabric of each vineyard in order to unearth the subtleties and nuances that create distinction while still evoking power, poise and purity to the wines produced.
