Lula Cellars, an ultra-premium (and ultra-pet-friendly) winery located in the heart Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley, has made $5,100 in donations to support the recovery and rehabilitation of animals displaced in the Napa Valley fires.
Last October, Lula Cellars committed to donating $5 for every person and 4-legged friend who visited the tasting room through the end of 2017. Lula is known for their welcoming winery dog Honey, and for having one of the most pet-friendly tasting rooms in Northern California. It was very important to the winery to do something to help the many pets, farm animals and wildlife that were displaced during the tragic fires.
1,020 creatures of both the furry and non-furry variety visited the Lula Cellars tasting room from the time of the fires through December 31, 2017, generating a donation total of $5,100. This total has been divided three-ways, and $1,700 has been presented to each of the following three organizations: Wine Country Animal Lovers, Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch and The Milo Foundation.
About Lula Cellars
Lula Cellars is a boutique winery located in the revered “Deep End” of the Anderson Valley. With an annual case production of around 3,000 cases, Lula’s focus is our Estate and Anderson Valley Pinot Noirs and single vineyard offerings from the greater Mendocino County. In addition, we are proud to produce a variety of wines that compliment today’s diverse wine enthusiasts. Winemaker Matt Parish’s goal is to produce delicious world-class wines that are as approachable as they are memorable.
Our customer-friendly philosophy is echoed in every aspect of our business, especially the lively tasting room where guests will be greeted by winery dog Honey, and can enjoy wine tastings at the hand-hewn redwood bar, with their four-legged friends happily milling at their feet.
Lula’s home is on a 22-acre property in Philo, just 2 1/2 hours north of San Francisco. For festival-goers or travelers to Mendocino County, our property offers a unique experience for wine tasting. The welcoming tasting room team – Dan, Gary, Kacy and Kim – are all knowledgeable about our wines and growing regions and will happily share stories about the local history. Lula takes its name from founding (and recently retired) winemaker Jeff Hansen’s maternal grandmother.
Located on Hwy 128 at 2800 Guntly Road (next door to Handley Cellars), our petfriendly tasting room offers stunning views of the surrounding property and the lauded Pinot Noir growing area in the “Deep End” of the Anderson Valley. The tasting room is open daily, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. To contact the tasting room, please call 707.895.3737.
