Andrew Will Winery was started in 1989 and is owned by Chris Camarda. The winery was launched out of a love for wine that Chris had developed while working in the restaurant trade for almost 20 years. Named after the Camardas’ son Will and nephew Andrew, Andrew Will has been a major contributor to the success and notoriety in recent years of Washington State wines. Initially, the winery consisted of 900 square feet of rented industrial space in Seattle. In the early days, everything was done by hand from shoveling grapes into crushers, to labeling and delivering the wine. In 1994, the Camardas moved to Vashon Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, where they built the present winery. They now have two buildings which allow them to make about 4300 cases of wine a year. They have also purchased land in Eastern Washington and planted 36 acres in grapes. Andrew Will makes Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. As Chris Camarda has developed his style of winemaking over the years Read more »

  • In 1976, Amerine and Roessler ( U.C. Davis professors) counseled tasters to avoid emotive and anthropomorphic terms such big, finesse, hard, intense, lingering, long, rich, silky and velvety.  They stated in their book "Wines, Their Sensory Evaluation" that these words should be avoided at all costs.  How does the forum feel of this?

  • Andrew Will Red Bordeaux Blend Washington Sorella 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Extremely fruity yet clean and refreshing. Obvious New World style but hass more than the standard fruity bold statement stuff the usual 'less than a tenner wine' tends to show. Read More

  • Andrew Will Merlot Red Mountain Klipsun Vineyard 1999

    Snoothrank:

    The 1999 Klipsun is ready to drink now. Do not age this wine any more. If you like a peppery wine...it's more like a zin I think...then you will like it. Not like other merlots Read More

  • Andrew Will Merlot Walla Walla Valley Seven Hills Vineyard 1999

    Snoothrank:

    This 1999 merlot is fairly old by now and was a big disappointment. I would stick with younger vintages. Read More

  • Andrew Will Red Bordeaux Blend Horse Heaven Hills Sorella 2006

    Snoothrank:

    An interesting and pleasant balance of fruit, minerals, tannin and acidity; it drives right down the fairway without letting any one characteristic of the four varietals present define this tasty blend. For the price it should be good, and it is. Read More

    Wine review by AdamJefferson


  • I am always impressed with how some people, mostly real wine experts have learned to pick out many specific flavors in a wine. Once in a while a specific flavor jumps out at me, which is sometimes good, sometimes bad. I remember in France, they would sell these kits with maybe 50 or more bottles, each containing different important smells to he... Read More

    Wine review by historiavita


  • I've just become interested in wine recently and still trying to figure out my palate. Any suggestions for something fairly inexpensive (under $10 or $15) and maybe a couple in the $25-$30 range? I've been told I have fairly mature taste for a newbie. I enjoy cabernet sauvignon and merlot, a thicker richer wine. Thanks for any suggestions. Read More

  • Andrew Will Syrah Red Mountain Annie Camarda Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Andrew Will makes some of the best wine in America let alone Washington State. Not big bruiser Cali style but elegant and refined. Ciel du Cheval is his 'right bank' interpretation. Lots of Merlot. Read More
