The “antithesis of your corporate winemaker,” Chris Camarda puts his personality into Andrew Will: family, music, art, and a distinguished palate, producing wines with a distinct European style. Chris began making wine in a small rented storage facility before moving to Vashon, Washington, an island that can only be reached by ferry, where the winery shares the same land as the Camarda home. Named after Chris' nephew (Andrew) and son (Will), this is truly a family business, with Will now in the position of assistant winemaker.
