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 Zinfandel 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Surprisingly fresh and fruity after all these years. This wine has always been a bit lighter in color, flavor and body than most CA zins in this price range that have can have absurd levels of alcohol. However, the attractive red berry and floral notes backed up by some pepper and spice made this a great fit with pasta and meat sauce.Not so good... Read More

  • Handley Zinfandel 2002

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is very rich and jammy with notes of blackberrys, even chocolate. I recommend serving with food for best enjoyment, especially a nice roast or steak. Read More
