Andy Erickson resigns as winemaker for Screaming Eagle
In the latest news from the rarified world of Napa’s cult producers, Andy Erickson resigned December 27th as Screaming Eagle’s winemaker.
In an email, Erickson explained that having overseen the replanting of Screaming Eagle’s vineyard and building a new winery there, he’s ready to move on. His original connection to the property, Erickson said, was through former co-owner Charles Banks, and he will be working on several projects with him. That includes consulting for South African winery Mulderbosch, which Banks has recently purchased.
Of course, Erickson is still working with Dalla Valle, Ovid, Dancing Hares, and Arietta, plus his own Favia wines.
