About the Tour


Enjoy the scenic ride to the Anderson Valley where your first stop will be a wine tasting at Handley Cellars. Handley Cellars is located at the northwest end of Anderson Valley, just 10 miles inland from the Pacific coast. Founded by Milla Handley in 1982, Handley Cellars was the first winery in the United States established by a woman winemaker in her own name and the fifth bonded winery in Anderson Valley. In 2005 the Handley Estate Vineyard became the first certified organic vineyard in Anderson Valley. Still family owned and operated by a second generation, we are passionate about organic farming, careful stewardship of the land, and handcrafted, low-intervention winemaking.

Your next stop will be at Pennyroyal farm, where every goat, sheep and cheese has a name and this is your opportunity to meet them.  Enjoy a specially curated charcuterie box lunch followed by guided tour of Pennyroyal’s farmstead creamery — including a walk-through of the solar-powered barn to meet the animals — and learn about the integrative methods behind their handcrafted cheese and the unique story behind how the cheeses are named. 

Over the past two decades, Anderson Valley on California’s majestic Mendocino Coast has emerged as one of the world’s great wine regions and this tour would not be complete without a stop at Goldeneye Wines. Known for their world class Pinot Noir and A state-of-the-art winemaking facility, committed to sustainability.

But your day isn’t over. After leaving the Anderson Valley your tour will have one final stop at Alley 6 Craft Distillery: Small Batch Perfection Rooted in Sonoma County. Family Owned and Operated, Every Sip a Testament to Craftsmanship.
