While Andi has lived in many places around the US and abroad, she always knew she would return to her roots in the Finger Lakes, her childhood home. She has long known that she would never be happy spending her career in the stale air and artificial light of an office building. So, in 2011 she returned to pursue degrees in viticulture and enology at FLCC and then at Cornell University. After completing internships with Anthony Road Wine Co., the Finger Lakes Grape Program and the Cornell Orchards, and working as a graduate research assistant, Andi has come to Silver Thread Vineyard to be our assistant winemaker/vineyard manager. Her favorite things about Silver Thread are the team environment, and having the opportunity to participate in the cultivation of the vineyard and the vinification of the wine.
