Major Crush Season 1: Ep 8 Handwritten Wines

In this episode, Meredith and Lou visit the gorgeous town of Yountville located in the Napa Valley to sit down with Philip O’Connor of Handwritten Wines. Everything about a tasting at Handwritten is an experience — and that’s what makes this one of the most crush-worthy wineries you can find in the Napa Valley. The attention to detail and the way they wrap their story inside of every bottle is fascinating and truly special. //Rob Lloyd is the amazing winemaker behind the Handwritten label, and he is truly an artisan winemaker in every sense of the word. You can read all about the winery and the winemaker at

To find out more about Handwritten Wines, and to make an appointment on your next visit out to the Napa Valley, go to and be sure to tell them you have a MAJOR CRUSH on Handwritten Wines! // All Handwritten Wines are sold direct-to-consumer, which means you won’t find these wines in your local store or wine shop — so be sure to check out their collection on the website. // By the way…there is a BONUS episode that we created where Philip shares more about his life and background, and where he tells you a bit about his wife’s interesting life as a cheesemonger!

Featured Wines: The wine Philip shared with Meredith and Lou is the 2014 Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon //
