TAKE A TOUR OF NAPA VALLEY’S DISTRICT CABERNET SAUVIGNONS
Handwritten offers comprehensive sit down tasting hosted by our certified wine educators focused on exploring our small-lot, hillside and mountain Napa Valley District Cabernet Sauvignons. We source from Rutherford, Oak Knoll, Oakvill, Stags Leap, Calistoga, Coombsville and Carneros.
We also feature two white wines, our proprietary “The Author” Sauvignon Blanc, Carneros Chardonnay, and a Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. These tastings are hosted at our "Pop-Up" at sister Winery Jessup Cellars in Yountville, California.
For those seeking a once-in-a-lifetime wine country experience like no other, we also offer an exclusive farmhouse experience.
These appointment only tastings are available 7 days a week at 10am, 12pm, 2pm & 4pm. Farmhouse experiences tend to need at least a week’s notice and are subject to availability. To book an appointment, please reach out to us at email@example.com or by calling Emily Wilkens at (707) 944-8524.
