Andy Frieden


Andy’s passion for wine began while working at an Italian restaurant in San Francisco. A trip to Tuscany to visit his family’s olive oil estate then sparked an interest that led him to the Napa Valley and a new career in wine.

Having worked for various merchants and distributors over the years, he’s had the pleasure to travel throughout France, Germany and Spain, visiting wine regions and tasting extensively.

As a fine wine specialist, Andy has attended the Bordeaux en primeur tastings for many important vintage releases, where he’s developed friendships with some of the region’s most celebrated vintners and winemakers.

With his years of experience and knowledge of fine wines, Andy offers a generous approach to educating and assisting clients with their cellar plans and collecting goals. In his spare time, he enjoys skiing, tennis and practicing his culinary skills.
