Napa Valley’s Handwritten Wines of St. Helena welcomes back New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart to its ongoing StoryTellers Series this Saturday, June 21st from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.

compositeThe evening will celebrate the release of Lescroart’s latest novel, The Keeper, the newest of the author’s San Francisco-based Dismas Hardy legal thriller series. Ten percent of the evening’s wine sales will go to support the Napa County Library Literacy Center, which provides free tutoring for adults who need help with reading and writing. They also have on-site ESL classes and tutoring at three Migrant Farm Worker Housing units in the Napa Valley.

Handwritten is all about enriching lives through wine and the literary arts,” says Judd Wallenbrock, General Manager of Handwritten Wines. “We also believe in giving back to the community, so for us, what could be more relevant than supporting the Napa County Library Literacy Center and its project to educate farmworkers.”

WHEN:   Saturday, June 21st 6:00pm to 8:30pm
WHERE:  Handwritten Wines, 1010 Main Street, St. Helena, CA
WHAT:  Wine Tasting, Bites, copy of The Keeper, Meet and Greet & Author Signing
COST:   $75 General | $55 Handwritten Circle

Leading up to the event, Handwritten also sponsored an online auction lot on Charitybuzz.com, the world’s leading charity auction site. The lot included a signed 3-liter, hand painted, etched bottle of Handwritten’s 2011 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir and the winning bidder’s name featured as a character in Lescroart’s next novel.

Handwritten Wines was a dream that began years ago to craft wines from the finest fruit of the Napa Valley. We dreamt of returning to a simpler time when artisans crafted and nurtured their wines without the pressure of a release date. - Founders Dan and Becky Blue, Roy and Cheri Eisiminger and Vance and Jana Thompson
Hosted by proprietors Dan and Becky Blue, the evening at Handwritten’s Cottage in St. Helena will feature the winery’s sub-appellation district wines, delicious bites, and the opportunity to break bread with Lescroart (pronounced “Less-kwah”). Volunteer tutors and their learners from the Napa County Library Literacy Center will also share their stories of success.

Sister winery to Jessup Cellars, the incredible wines we tasted back in San Francisco early last year, Handwritten Wines produces micro-lot handcrafted Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Bordeaux blends, along with a classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon by renowned winemaker Robert Lloyd. Priced from $45 to $125, all wines are available direct to consumer by allocation only.
