Our estate vineyard experiences cool foggy nights and bright sunny days, the perfect climate for the 12 acres of Pinot Noir, 13 acres of Chardonnay, and 5 acres of Gewürztraminer planted there. All of our Estate Chardonnay and sparkling wines are produced entirely from estate fruit, as are most of our reserve Pinot Noirs. Because vineyards in Anderson Valley are interspersed with homes and watersheds, Milla made the decision apply for organic certification, and the Estate Vineyard was CCOF certified in August 2005. José Jimenez, our Estate Vineyard manager, Kristen Barnhisel, our co-winemaker, and Bill Oldham, our consultant, work together as a team to keep our vines thriving. They use compost and mineral supplements to build the soil, thus fostering stronger plants that are less susceptible to disease. They avoid using pesticides and herbicides, allowing beneficial insects to flourish.

  • Handley Brut Rosé 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Not a subtle rose sparkler, as the deep salmon color gives away from the start. Brimming with strawberry and raspberries balanced by a creamy, nutty richness. This will age very well. I have one stored away for a special event. Read More

If anyone would like some insider info on the region I've got advice on some great spots. And of ... Read More

  • Handley Cellars Rsm Reserve Anderson Valley 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Huge, heavy chocolate notes on the nose. A little intimidating! Opened up nicely to reveal some cherry flavors, and good balance. Long finish. Have one more bottle that I will cellar for another couple of years. Read More

    After drinking this, I can't remember why I purchased it. Devoid of the lovely floral Viognier bouquet, and the finish was too astringent. Read More

  • Handley Cellars Water Tower White 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Enjoyed this as an aperitif with a cheese plate before Thanksgiving dinner. Very nice wine to wake up the palate, as it's well-balanced with nice acidity. A blend of Viognier and Gewurz this year. At the price point, a nice purchase that is sure to please everyone. Very approachable. Read More
