Handley’s Rosé grows at the family’s organically farmed estate in the Deep End of Anderson Valley, off vines planted in 1990. It’s immediately seductive, with a deep scent of pinot noir and the freshness of cool Anderson Valley nights. And it sustains that freshness for days, in bright notes of strawberry leaf and earthy woodland berries. It’s a rosé that looks and smells like wine while remaining light and crisp. Buy a case to enjoy all summer long.
