Pleasant Valley Vineyards was established by Craig and Cathy Handley in 1996. Nestled in its own private enclave, our family estate vines surround a cathedral grove of coastal redwoods. The property encompasses a five-acre bowl on the western ridge within Pleasant Valley in Aptos, California. Only a short distance from the Monterey Bay, Pleasant Valley possesses its own unique microclimate of warm days and tempered nights that allows the vines to gradually produce and mature fruit with intense varietal characteristics and complexity. Each vine, and the grape clusters produced, are selectively nurtured, gently hand pruned, hedged, leafed and harvested. Our limited release wines are meticulously handcrafted exclusively from our estate-grown fruit bottled on-site. Our chardonnay is made in the sur lie style and our Pinot Noir from whole cluster and whole berry fruit. The wines are aged in small French oak barrels of medium and medium plus toast and held in climate controlled chambers.
