This was our first visit but I was familiar with their wines. My wife and I enjoyed the wines so much we joined their club! Also best of luck to our host... More

Can't say enough about Chris - he was so personable and knowledgeable about the area, the Handley Cellars history and especially their wines. Wonderful experience and the best pinot!

Our experience at Handley is like a great family get together. Tastings are informative, not rushed, and adaptive to everyone's likes and dislikes. The trellised patio area overlooking the vineyards and operations is beautiful. The whites are amazing - and the pinots are some of the best. Chris and his staff are the best hosts. Definitely our "go-to" winery in... More

Our experience at Handley Cellars was amazing. Chris was our host and he made the tasting relaxing. Sitting on the patio and enjoying the beautiful view of the vineyards and the valley while enjoying the wonderful Pinot's was the best. I advise anyone that travels through Anderson Valley to stop at Handley Cellars. Lorraine M

Our host Chris was absolutely wonderful. He is knowledgeable about Handley wines, their production, the family history, and the amazing south eastern art that is displayed in the tasting room. He customized the wine tasting for us and made it an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend that you plan a stop at Handley Cellars if you are in the... More

We are so glad we stopped here but wish it was our first instead of our last as we made our way up to Mendocino along Hwy 128. Steven was our server and he was so down to earth, knowledgeable and someone who truly enjoyed his job. We had multiple tastings of their unique offerings at no charge. The 2013... More

Handley Cellars has an nice tasting room and shop, but also a nice patio area where you can relax. We especially loved their whites. We were traveling with our dog and they are very dog-friendly. Max laid at our feet while we tasted wine.

This was a winemakers dinner during Pinot festival, $75 per person, invitation via email and with wine club mailing, which we decided to do since we do the wine club and order several additional cases per year. We were not greeted nor welcomed. You just went to the bar for a glass were served with a few appetizers and discarded.... More

I really love Handley Cellars. I had a membership here for a couple of years. They make great wines and throw great events for members such as the summer BBQ. I also got to learn about wine making from Alisa who was a great host every time we visited. Also just in general, Anderson Valley is way nicer then Napa... More

Stopped here at the end of our self guided tour. Free tastings of a great lineup of wines. Friendly interaction with staff and great prices on wine.
