Friendly and free tastings

Nice selection of whites and reds, dry to sweet. Very tasty wines. Outdoor picnic tables on a covered deck. Small shop inside the relatively small tasting room.

So, we were there on SuperBowl Sunday and normally the weather would be bad. It was awesome. No crowds. And our tasting expert Allie is our new best friend. The setting is gorgeous. The wine was wonderful. If you are in the Anderson Valley start your tour at Handley. This was the highlight of our trip.

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.

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 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
