Handley Cellars is a small family-owned winery in California’s Mendocino County. Bonded in 1982, we produce around 12,000 cases of wine a year. Our quality starts with our Estate Vineyards in Anderson Valley. We are located at the northwest end of the Anderson Valley on 59 acres of the original Holmes Ranch. Still standing on the property are the now-refurbished ranch house, barn, and the original water tower. At Handley Cellars, we offer a wide variety of wines that complement today’s diverse cuisines. Winemaker Milla Handley seeks to make balanced wines that possess distinctive varietal characteristics, wines that reflect the soil and climate in which they were grown. Handley’s beautiful tasting room is located 6 miles northwest of Philo, California, on Highway 128. We offer tours by appointment, and our garden courtyard is open for picnics. Stop by to try our selections and, while visiting, enjoy our unique display of folk art collected from around the world.

If you like Pinot Noir this is the place. Great flight for tasting especially when paired with the cheese platter. Very knowledgeable staff and snowy amazing outdoor arbor patio to relax and enjoy the wine.

Great set up for wine tasting and no fee. We tasted 3 whites and 4 reds, no rush, took their time very helpful. Had a glass out in there patio afterwards. Only draw back is they can not ship to Canada.

Drove in from PT Arena for a day of wine! Charming valley that reminded me of the Napa region many years ago. Low key and original. Great wines at this vineyard and loved talking to our server who gave us some history of the valley....More

My husband and I and another couple recently visited Handley Cellars. We loved the wine tasting experience at Handley. The wines are awesome and we joined the wine club. Chris was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We plan to return in the future.

We had a beautiful wine tasting experience. The wines are excellent; we joined your club (the only club we joined on this trip). The tasting room and the chairs make for a memorable experience.
