Handwritten notes and letters arrive unexpectedly. They leave an etched path of deeper connectedness between the writer and the reader. Tale of paper, pen, words, and hands bond to create a unique message. Strokes of ink carry the writer’s voice of sadness,, encouragement, love or regret. Never before written or read in quite the same way. Savored now, yet often kept to be found again.

Celebrating ancient traditions, Handwritten honors all things handcrafted and handwritten. Just as each person’s handwriting is unique; each wine and each vintage is unique. We are a gathering point for a community of like-minded and passionate lovers of wine and the literary arts, fostering a culture of exploration and discussion. Handwritten’s compelling winemaking story is about crafting evocative Napa Valley District Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the best hillside and mountain vineyards situated across the many unique terroirs.

Founded in 2009, Handwritten’s story continues as we write our next chapter with the opening of Handwritten’s new home in South Yountville. Situated in the quaint wine country town of Yountville, the SOYO House, as it’s been dubbed by locals, is the ultimate place to enjoy a side-by-side comparative tasting of our Napa Valley District wines and a host of other elevated experiences.
