Napa Valley Wine Expert


Growing up in Napa and having an older brother involved in the restaurant industry gave A.J. an appreciation early on for wine and food. That appreciation turned into a passion and now A.J. is currently doing his best to pursue the “good life” and share his love of wine and food with as many people as possible!

Wine Ambassador 

Vi grew up in Napa and is proud to be 4th generation. Her grandfather worked for Beringer Brothers for 30 years before purchasing his own vineyard in Redwood Valley, which is where Vi grew up. Vi attended Cal State studying Cultural Anthropology and then made her way back to Napa Valley. Her love for the wine and hospitality industry really took flight while working for a local business in Yountville. Vi spends her time with her three lovely daughters, her Handwritten team members and enjoying wine (especially bubbles!).
