While California boasts over 4,300 wineries producing 84% of all U.S wine output, and Napa Valley is home to 450 of those wineries, any boutique winery that receives positive reviews and raves from multiple publications and wine experts must be doing something extraordinary.
In recent months, Handwritten Wines, a Napa Valley boutique winery producing highly sought-after handcrafted wines, received several accolades from wine, food, and lifestyle publications, heralding the winery’s outstanding wines and unique wine tasting experiences.
Commentary about Handwritten Wines
Here are a few of the recent commentaries, PR pieces, and notable reviews featuring Handwritten’s handcrafted wines and their excellent “Bread and Butter” tasting experiences at this boutique winery’s Yountville Tasting Room.
“At Handwritten Wines (in Yountville), guests may indulge in a specialty tasting, including a rare Cabernet Sauvignon made from Carneros AVA grapes paired with artisanal butters from around the world.”
This Arizona-based publication notes many exciting and tasty things to do while visiting Napa Valley. While featuring Handwritten Wines as one of their ‘must-do’ destinations, the article mentions: During the 90-minute Bread and Butter wine tasting event, “guests enjoy white truffle potato chips and Bouchon Bakery baguettes along with multiple mouthwatering artisan butters.” These flavorful items complement the tasting and enjoyment of five of Handwritten’s award-winning handwritten varietals.
In Paradise Valley View’s Getaway Napa piece, writer Alison Ballin Batz highlights the Handwritten Wine wine tasting experience by noting the “Bread and Butter experience pairs five cabernets with artisan butter and locally sourced fresh bread.”
