Handley Cellars: winery information
Winemaker: Milla Handley/Kristen Barnhisel
Annual Production: 16,000 cases
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 to apply for organic certification, and the Estate Vineyard was CCOF certified in August 2005.
