Handwritten Wines is a new and different vehicle through which the founders can express their love for wine and people. Their first foray into becoming vintners was with Handwritten's successful sister winery, Jessup Cellars. Our winemaking philosophy shows a commitment to the unique terroir of California and to the potential that lies in growing Old World varieties in a decidedly New World setting.
Our Winemaker has created techniques that allow the fruit to be handled more gently than ever before, slowly coaxing out the truest flavors nature has to offer. Like a writer searching for the perfect word or phrase to express an emotion, Handwritten seeks out evocative fruit that embodies the unique terroir of Napa Valley’s finest hillside and mountain vineyards. We strive to inspire a thought, a moment, a story, in each and every sip of the wines we create. Our belief in enriching lives through artistic expression extends to what we think of as our human terroir; our commitment to supporting the literary arts and to giving back to the extraordinary community by which we are surrounded.
Our “Tale of the Terroir” experience is a private tasting in a 100 year old cottage, located on the same property as Jessup Cellars in the Village of Yountville. Your wines will be pre-poured waiting for you, then we will begin your journey through the Napa Valley, while tasting our collection of Handwritten Wines. We look forward to hosting you! Please book your tasting experience here at CellarPass!
