In 2002, Jeff Hansen discovered a vineyard that produces extraordinary Pinot Noir grapes a dozen miles from the Mendocino coast. He decided it was time to realize a long-held dream.
Wines In India "I was looking for a place to make wine I wanted to drink and sell it directly through a tasting room," says Hansen, winemaker-proprietor of Lula Cellars. His tasting room is located in the Mediterranean villa on Highway 128 six miles northwest of Boonville in Anderson Valley. Affable with a ready smile, he stands at the tasting hand-hewn redwood bar in front of a chalk board listing the day's tastings and describes coalescing winemaking skills he honed in Napa Valley where the wines he made got "great reviews." Hansen got into the winemaking world after working 14 years as a commercial product photographer for advertising agencies in Southern California. In 1985, Hansen decided, "life is only so long." He'd lived well and enjoyed every minute but was ready to do something different. A long time wine aficionado, he moved to Northern California for a slower pace.

For the next seven years he immersed himself into learning every part of the industry, from grape growing to winemaking to sales. "I used to travel six months a year, going between a dozen states dealing with a multitude of distributors," he says.
