A native of Kansas City, Eric Andersen began his professional career working in viticulture as a research assistant for the University of Missouri’s Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology in Columbia, Missouri. He maintained over forty viticulture related experiments across the state of Missouri including the organization and execution of various canopy management and propagation trials, as well as extensive bud and cane data collection. Eric began working at Macari Vineyards in the summer of 2010 as Vineyard Manager and currently supervises a team of ten vineyard staff members year-round and more than twenty during harvest season. When not in the vineyard, Eric maintains tractors and other mechanical equipment. Frequently attending seminars at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County to learn local viticulture techniques, Eric strongly believes that winemaking begins in the vineyard, and strives to improve the vines year after year.
