StoryTellers Series with ‘Appellation Napa Valley’ author Richard Mendelson 

Handwritten’s StoryTellers Series returns Saturday, April 29th 2017 with Appellation Napa Valley author Richard Mendelson. Hosted by Philip O’Conor of Handwritten and Chef Emily at her St. Helena hillside farmhouse, the evening features a fireside reading and Q&A session with Mendelson in the gardens, food and wine pairing in the speakeasy, with transportation provided to-and-from the Farmhouse beginning at Jessup Cellars.

“Napa Valley, with its agricultural preserve that began in 1968, has a rich historical background, and Richard guides the reader on a journey through it, introducing those dedicated to wine and its provenance, his modern pioneers. Through stories, keen observations and case histories, he imparts his understanding ... not only of the value of locales and regions, but also of how to preserve, protect, and promote them.” — THOMAS KELLER, CHEF/PROPRIETOR, THE FRENCH LAUNDRY

In Appellation Napa Valley, renowned wine lawyer and industry authority Richard Mendelson takes us inside the struggles that did so much to make the Napa Valley into what it is today. Along the way, he brings us incisive portraits of the men and women who joined hands in common cause and common spirit, igniting a revolution in American wine and food in the process.

The afternoon’s food and wine pairings include ‘The Author’ Sauvignon Blanc, an AVA Cabernet Sauvignon tasting featuring three wines from 2012 vintage, whole roasted pig, oysters, and a variety of small farm bites.

This very special Secret Farmhouse Gathering is limited to just fifteen guests. Tickets are $100 per person for Handwritten members and $115 for non-members. Your ticket includes all of the above as well as a copy of Appellation Napa Valley (Retail: $75).

For couples, we offer a package of two tickets at $150 for Handwritten members and $165 for non-members. This package includes one copy of Appellation Napa Valley to share. (Retail: $75). All tickets include wine tasting as well as heavy hors d’oeuvres and transportation.

NOTE: Tickets must be purchased by Thursday, April 27 at 4pm.
