It’s that time of year when we all want to “do good”. Maybe it’s the crazy things happening in our world, maybe it’s the colder weather that forces us to be inside with each other longer, or maybe it’s because we were trained to “be good” for Santa at a very young age.
At V. Sattui Winery, we are giving you, (and us!), a very easy way to “do good”. Bring a children’s book, help a local child, and receive a free tasting. The books will be donated to Napa County Child Start Inc.’s Raising a Reader Program, which promotes lifelong learning for children. We’re off to a good start, having asked our employees to donate books at our recent holiday party. We’d love to get your help in collecting hundreds more to give to local kids in our community.
Your new, unwrapped children’s book (ages 0-9 years) will eventually be sent home with a child to share with their parents and families. While Raising a Reader is targeted to preschool children, the benefits are family‐wide as reading supports parent-child interaction, enhances a child’s ability to listen, and encourages a family routine of having “special time” together.
Just hearing a loving adult read, helps children expand their vocabulary, knowledge and imagination. It also makes them aware of the spoken and written language. It helps children listen better (wouldn’t we all love that?).
We will collect the children’s books in our Main Tasting Room through the month of December. We are open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except December 24th when the winery closes at 3 p.m., and we are closed for business on Christmas Day.
Guests who donate a book will receive a complimentary tasting at the winery.
Let’s give the gift of reading! We hope to see you soon!
