' Lula Cellars - Our Story

Our Story

Lula Cellars is a boutique winery located in the revered "Deep End" of the Anderson Valley whose handcrafted Pinot Noir wines garner gold medals and devoted fans. 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 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To contact the tasting room, please call 707.895.3737.
