Supper Club Series

Experience innovative cuisine crafted by hidden gem chefs around the Bay Area at Handwritten’s new Supper Club event series! 

Handwritten Wines, a renowned boutique winery based in Yountville in the heart of Napa Valley, began its Supper Club Series on March 25th. The event initiated Handwritten Winery’s quest to entertain guests with celebrations of innovative cuisine by local chefs combined with beautifully handcrafted wines from their Winery.

Handwritten Wines’ Mission for creating the Supper Club Series is to “organize occasional ‘pop-up restaurant’ events at our Yountville tasting room that highlight the culinary talents of these amazing chefs complemented with our beautiful wines.”

2022’s First Supper Club Series Event

Handwritten’s first 2022 Supper Club installment featured a three-course meal created by Chef Shannon Kelly, owner of Oakville Avenue Catering in St Helena. His wife Christina, a noted pastry chef, crafted the dessert, a perfect final act for this wonderful dining experience.
