Andrew DelosEnRoute Winery
Andrew Delos has been making Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma County for most of his winemaking career. Following graduation from the Viticulture and Enology program at University of California, Davis, Delos served as enologist with MacRostie Winery in Carneros. He then was appointed assistant winemaker at Pellegrini Family Vineyards in the Russian River Valley where he worked with Olivet Lane Vineyard, a source of many notable Russian River Pinot Noirs. Delos concurrently made the wines for several custom crush clients, including some of the most respected names in Russian River Pinot. Eventually, Delos became assistant winemaker at single-vineyard specialist Nickel & Nickel in Napa Valley, where he made wines from Napa Valley, Russian River and Sonoma Coast. When the winery partners created EnRoute in 2007, Delos was the natural choice for winemaker, given his background in Russian River Pinot Noir, and EnRoute’s dedication to the varietal.
