Nurturing a Legacy
Posted on March 28, 2022
Growing up on one of the Anderson Valley’s first vineyard estates, Lulu Handley knew she was surrounded by magic. Her late parents, legendary winemaker Milla Handley and husband Rex Scott McClellan, established the property in 1982 and lovingly tended the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer that grew there. Modeling organic farming techniques before they were en vogue, the couple’s deep care for the land shaped their wines and their family, too.
Now the proprietor of Handley Cellars, Lulu is shepherding the next generation.
