We chose this winery randomly and were delighted. Tasted several eines, and we were even offered chocolate. Bought several bottles and had them shipped home. Cozy place with very friendly staff. Wonderful visit. We Will Be Back.

We stopped in on a recommendation from our B&B, and were really impressed at the quality of the wines were able to sample. Our server was personable and knowledgeable about all their products and gave us just enough info for each wine we tasted. And each one was at least very good ( even the varietals I am not a...

Our tasting room steward mentioned that they lost out because of being near the end of the wine trail. So now, you can know to save one stop for them. They have some excellent wines in a lovely tasting room, filled with a collection of beautiful art items for sale and just for the room. We were very attracted to... More

At last, a winery with a tasting room which is just that!!! Forget Napa, head for Mendocino County. Unpretentious, quality wines with good old fashioned hospitality. After being robbed for tasting in Napa the offer of free tasting was welcome. Chris was personable, knowledgeable and accommodating...not to mention has great taste in cars. Their wines were among the best we... More

We stopped in Handley for wine tasting and again had a great time. This is our second visit and we enjoyed it once again. The staff is excellent! We tasted all the wines and of course we found several that we really liked. We bought a couple of bottles to enjoy at our hotel! They actually gave us a small... More

Any tasting room that serves 4 day old wine does not deserve your visit. The wine was stale and when I asked the server indicated that it was about 4 days old. I was shocked. We got out of there quick.

This was the first trip to this winery and it was not disappointing. Excellent staff - especially Ali. She was a sweetheart that took the time to show us around the winery and the vineyard. Spent lots of time explaining the different wines. We met the owner - Alma - who was very personable and friendly. They have a excellent... More

We have been fortunate to have several wine tasting trips to Calif. This was our very first time at Handley. I found the place to be unique, peaceful. The gal who helped us was friendly, very mellow and not pushing sales. Both we and our friends purchased bottles there and had some shipped. Loved the outdoor setting and took many... More

We were early, so we parked on the side of the highway eating blackberries. Once the place opened, we walked in to a witing excited lady happy to see her first customer. Before taste testing, she showed us the grounds, let us taste a few grapes on the vines, and snuck us in the back for a few photo ops... More
