Selected Wine Producers
We have had the pleasure of visiting many wineries, and some of them have products we like better than others. Here is a presentation of the wineries we represent in Norway.
On tranquil summer days, as golden sun kisses the valleys and hills of vineyards in Sonoma, unique air currents bring cooling breezes inland from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. Wafting softly, with some gusts and gales, they glide through the vineyard rows. As they encounter steeper slopes and drift upward, they become anabatic winds. Soaring glider pilots rely on them for flight. We treasure them for the coolness they impart on their journey — a gift of nature that makes the vineyard more temperate and slows the ripening process, producing robust flavors and distinctive varietal characters in our grapes.
Our exclusive Anaba wines are handcrafted from the best Rhône and Burgundian grape varieties grown at our Carneros Estate vineyard and in selected outstanding vineyard properties throughout Sonoma County. Our Rhône-style wines are artistic blends, inspired by the rugged earthiness of France's Rhône Valley and replicated in the rocky Sonoma soils. Our Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs reflect the elegance and grace of the gently sloping vineyards found in Burgundy, crafted from similar sites in the Sonoma Coast and Carneros appellations.

Andreas Wine Estate
Nestling in the Bovlei valley, just outside Wellington, the Andreas wine estate is a hidden gem comprising 4.5 hectares of vineyards, an elegant eighteenth century house and lush gardens.
With a history dating back to the first Huguenot settlement in the valley, the estate forms part of the parcel of land originally granted to Barend Blum in 1699.
Long, hot summer days, cooled by late afternoon breezes, chilly, wet winters and sandy and loamy soils combine to provide the perfect terroir for the Shiraz which is produced. Small, dark and flavoursome berries are at the heart of this noble cultivar.
In 2015 the estate was acquired by a group of U.K. wine enthusiasts under the banner of Andreas Wine Trading. Their ambition is to build on the wine’s existing heritage, enhance the quality of the wine and take it to an even wider audience.
