Most winemakers have spent most of their working lives in the industry and Andrew Januik is no different – except for the fact that he is only 34 years old.
When he was just 13 years old when he started working with wine on the weekends and full-time during his summers. The son of a world-renowned winemaker, Andrew was born with winemaking in his blood and the proof is in the pressing. Every single one of the wines that Andrew has made since starting his eponymous label in 2011 have been rated above 90 points.
His passion for wine is rooted in the state of Washington but has led to nearly a decade of making wine in the Southern Hemisphere including his own labels in both Chile and Argentina.
The Northwest Wine Benefit Foundation, DBA Auction of Washington Wines, is committed to supporting the growth and awareness of the Washington state wine industry through a series of celebrated events benefiting our community. We have raised over $55 million since our inception in 1988.
