Beautiful New Tasting Room in Anderson Valley Showcases Award-winning Wines
PHILO, CA – (October 7, 2014) – On October 1, 2014, Lula Cellars (www.lulacellars.com) debuted a unique experience in wine tasting, with the opening to the public of its new 22-acre property, nestled amongst the rolling hills of bucolic Anderson Valley in Mendocino County, Northern California.
The new property, with a quarter mile of frontage along Hwy 128 in Philo, features a tasting room, a pond, a 14-acre Pinot Noir vineyard and a small-production winemaking facility, and beginning in 2015, a 10,000 square foot ‘Events Area’ will be available for weddings and other private events.
“This is a huge expansion for us,” states Jeff Hansen, winemaker at Lula Cellars. “The new property will offer visitors an interactive experience that will engage all the senses, and is the perfect vehicle to showcase our award-winning wines and the beauty and bounty of Anderson Valley.”
The new pet-friendly tasting room, which offers stunning views of the surrounding property, is located at 2800 Guntley Road in Philo (at the corner of Hwy 128 and Guntley Road), next door to Handley Cellars. This lauded Pinot Noir growing area, known as “The Deep End,” is on the west end of the Anderson Valley.
The current tasting room will be open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To contact the tasting room, please call 707.895.3737.
