With a perfect 10 Taste Rating (94+ Points), a pedigree of high scores and a spot on our list of the Top 10 Red Wines of 2021 (not to mention a discount of $10 a bottle), this estate grown beauty from the Sierra Foothills is back. It's the return of the Andis Wines Barbera d'Amador!
We're delighted to be able to bring back this extremely popular offer, especially since only 575 cases were produced. In fact, here's what we heard from one buyer after the last deal:
Hi Mr. Thorsen! I really missed the boat by only getting four bottles of this offer last month. Should have bought least at a case.
This is 100% Barbera from the Andis Estate vineyard in the Sierra Foothills AVA. The wine is fermented in steel tanks and spends 18 months in French Oak barrels, 10% of which were new.
This wine also has almost no residual sugar at all (less than 0.2 g/L) but don't let that fool you into thinking it is light on sweet fruit flavors! Read on for more on that.
This wine has a long line of high scores over the years and the 2019 vintage is no different with Wine Enthusiast giving it 91 points. We liked it even better than that giving it a perfect 10 Taste Rating.
The name of the wine (Barbera d'Amador) is an ode to the excellent Barbera grown in Amador County much like the Italian areas of Alba and Asti. In fact, the first Amador vineyards were established in 1849 during the Gold Rush and Italian varietals like Zinfandel, Sangiovese and especially Barbera have been at the forefront ever since.
And there really is something truly special about the Barbera grown here, in fact it's one of my favorite spots in the world for this variety. If you had a chance to get in on any of our Scott Harvey Barbera offers then you know why. Today's wine is just as good.
This latest vintage (2019) is only available from the winery at the SRP of $30.
Today's INSIDER DEAL; however, gets you 4 bottles of the 2019 Andis Wines Barbera d'Amador for just $79.99, or $20 a bottle, saving you $10 a bottle!
That's a discount of almost 40% after factoring in the additional savings from our super low $5 shipping! Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 4-packs you buy. Keep on reading for our full review.

From the bottle:
Andis Wines was established in 2010 as a forward-thinking winery built with a green design. Our building is modern in look with a focus on sustainability and respect for the environment. We source fruit from our Estate as well as some of the best vineyards in the region to produce exceptional wines of character and varietal correctness.
Barbera is an Italian grape variety that made its way to Amador County during the Gold Rush of the 1850’s and still thrives here today. The variety’s natural acidity and deep color make it a great option for blends but also a wonderful stand-alone wine with characteristics of black-cherry, raspberry, sun dried tomatoes, and vanilla.
Aloha, Andy Friedlander and Janis Akuna
Produced & Bottled by Andis Wines
The 2019 Andis Wines Barbera d'Amador begins with beautiful blackberry and bright cherry fruit intermingled with spice, black pepper and vanilla. It's a lovely, succulent aroma that sucks you right into the glass although this wine is still quite young so be sure to give it plenty of time to breathe for it to be at its best.
The wine tastes deliciously delicious! Loaded with super rich and juicy tart fruit flavors, great acidity and a smooth and silky texture, this is just a beauty. It has almost no residual sugar at all but it's extremely flavorful with Sweet Tart candy like flavors. Overall similar in flavor to the 2018, we found the 2019 to have a bit more spice.
It ends dry, very long and lingering and a bit tannic and grippy. Pair it with pizza or anything else in tomato sauce and you'll be in heaven. It was even slightly better on day 2.
As we noted above we absolutely love Barbera from this area and this is a great example not to be missed.
