Meet the wine
Pinot Gris — it’s the same grape as the Italian Pinot Grigio, but with a little French flair. Pinot Gris from the Alsace region of France tends to be fuller-bodied than its Italian counterpart; rich with a little bit of spice. Handley is known for minimal-intervention, food-friendly wines, and particularly for their California spin on Alsation white wines. Head winemaker Randy calls this wine, “Golden Sun Drops” — think peach and apple blossom aromas with notes of guava, stone fruit, and bright acidity.
Meet the maker
The Handley ladies have been mothering vines, babies, and business since ‘82. Founding winemaker Milla Handley was the first female winemaker in the US to establish a label with her own name. Now she’s passed the torch to her daughter Lulu who runs the winery, and Randy Schock the head winemaker who she worked side-by-side with for 11 years. A beloved name in wine, Handley is known for responsible farming, consistency, and never following the crowds.
