Get Started

the good life wine collective

The Good Life Wine Collective specializes in small-lot, handcrafted wines sourced from the Napa Valley’s finest vineyards and beyond. Our collective includes Jessup Cellars, Handwritten Wines and Humanitas Wines, all created by our celebrated winemaker, Robert Lloyd.

Our founders and family of employees are dedicated to the enrichment of life through wine by supporting our community via the arts, as well as health, housing and hunger projects. Each of our labels fill a unique niche – from the wines we offer to how we interact with our community at large.

We invite you explore each by following the pathways below…

Jessup Cellars

Jessup Cellars is simply the friendliest tasting room in Napa Valley. Our Tasting Gallery invites guests to enjoy a little bit of the good life each day as we showcase the ‘art of hospitality’ with the ‘art of winemaking’ in the setting of a beautiful gallery featuring a rotating portfolio of regional and national artists. Throughout the seasons, we host cultural events featuring art, music, fashion and film. Unpretentious, open, and engaging, our team of ambassadors makes the wine tasting experience enjoyable, memorable, and unlike any in the Valley.

To book an appointment at our Yountville Tasting Gallery, please contact us at (707) 944‐8523.

Wines So Good They Can Change The World!

Latin for philanthropy, character and human nature, Humanitas embraces two simple ideas – craft the best wines possible while creating good in the world.

Established in 2001, Humanitas is a unique winery that makes great wines honoring California's finest vineyards and appellations, and gives our profits to charity. Specifically, the profits go to solution‐based organizations in health, hunger and affordable housing, with a focus on regional‐giving. In this way, by enjoying Humanitas, you give back to your own community one sip at a time. We hope you'll join us!

For more information about membership, to purchase wines directly, or schedule a private tasting at our Napa Valley “Crusher Wine District” Tasting Annex, please visit us at or call 707‐944‐5620.

Drink Charitably!


The Handwritten Circle

Like a writer searching for the perfect word or phrase to express an emotion, Handwritten Wines seeks out evocative fruit that embodies the unique terroir of Napa Valley’s finest sub‐appellation hillside and mountain vineyards. We strive to inspire a thought, a moment, a story, in each and every sip of the wines we create.

Our belief in enriching lives through artistic expression extends to what we think of as our human terroir; our commitment to supporting the literary arts and to giving back to the extraordinary community by which we are surrounded.

It is our hope that you will join The Handwritten Circle.
