Giving Back with Food and Wine

Giving Back With Food & Wine

Since the pandemic outbreak at the beginning of 2020, more families and children of Napa Valley have come to need more assistance than before.

As a result, local businesses, including the prestigious Yountville boutique winery, Handwritten Wines, have contributed time, merchandise, and money to help maintain the welfare of local citizens in need.

One recent charitable event that the local community and businesses created and supported to provide Thanksgiving Dinners for those in need was the Napaulée Wine Auction.

Napaulée Wine Auction

Since Napa Valley wines represent a gold standard for wine quality worldwide, auction lots contributed from some of Napa Valley’s premier wineries naturally received considerable attention from bidders. Handwritten Wines’ High End Cabernet Sauvignon donations received substantial attention.

100% of the auction proceeds went directly to the Feed Our Families initiative during the 2021 holiday season. The Auction program was a joint effort with the Boys and Girls Club of St. Helena and Calistoga.

Each bidder received a raffle chance to win a $250 Gift Certificate to PRESS Napa Valley Restaurant in St. Helena.

When completed, the organizers of the Napaulée Wine Auction of 2021 announced the project raised over $27,000 thanks to the donations of so many phenomenal Napa Valley wineries, including the three Cabernet Sauvignon lots donated by handwritten Wines.

As a result of this widespread generosity of the donors and bidders, Feed Our Families and PRESS Restaurant Napa Valley could provide two hundred Thanksgiving meals to individuals and families in need.

Handwritten Winery

“Giving back to the community” is an integral part of the Handwritten Wines’ business philosophy. Notably, the winery’s commitment to long-term sustainability exemplifies the owners’ compassion for the future welfare of the planet and all its citizens.

When asked to participate in the immensely successful Feed Our Families auction, Handwritten, a premier boutique winery in Yountville, did not hesitate to donate.

When you next visit glorious Napa Valley, plan on a Classic or Short Story wine sampling of Handwritten’s delicious wines in their winetasting room in Yountville. You may also schedule a virtual or in-home tasting conducted by one of the Handwritten experts.

During your visit or virtual tasting, you can \learn about Handwritten’s excellent Members Circle and the many extra benefits.
