Napa Valley Film Festival 2017

Admist the fires, there was a lot of support by the local community and then some to make the 2017 Napa Valley Film Festival a success. We upped our game in participation and partnership this year and hosted three events at our winery. The first being Friday night's Vintner Circle Dinner. Winery favorite, Chef Eric Magnani, prepared an amazing three course meal that included the beautifully crafted Thai Coconut Pumpkin Curry in mini pumpkin. Saturday afternoon we hosted NVFF's first ever Rising Star Showcase. Six young and talented actors shared their time in a moderated panel discussion enlightening the attendees on what it's like being an actor today in the entertainment industry. Cousin's Maine Lobster Truck served up some tasty lobster rolls and tater tots while Materra and Trujillo Wines provided topnotch wines. We closed out the film festival with the Wrap Party on Sunday evening. From delicious tacos by PICO modern taqueria to keeping the crowd caffeineted with Ohm Coffee Roasters, it was a fun-filled evening with live music and cheer. Special thanks to our co-partners Cartier and Marciano. Below are just some of the moments from the festival. Check out more here.

2017 Fall Pick Up Party

Our Fall Pick Up Party was a success! Very talented music by David Ronconi filled the air while Dean's List members enjoyed new releases of the 2016 Chardonnay Reserve Southworth and 2013 Cunat Reserve as well as our Libraried 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Hidden Block. Chef Eric Magnani prepared delicious savory bites and Supreme Sweets provided sweet treats. With no rain present, the day was sunny complimented with the fall crisp air. Our winemakers were present to showcase special sneak peek barrel tastings of what's to come for our 2016 vintage of After Midnight (Malbec) and Reserve Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. We also raffled off some prizes from our Dean's List Partnered Hotels, The Hampton Inn, Brannan Cottage Inn, Southbridge Napa Valley, and Vintage House as well as our raffle of our custom-designed BAGGU tote, bottle of 2014 Midnight, etched wine glass set and cat pin. Be sure to RSVP at our next event!

2017 May Bottling

It's that time again. Bottling! We carefully transferred wine from barrel to bottle and hand bottled magnums. The photos and video also shows part of the printing process for the labels. It takes quite a team to make that one bottle of wine happen!

2017 Annual Blending Event

Another successful blending session happened this past weekend and we can't wait until we can share the finished product. Especially two new wines that have never been produced before. We were very impressed with how the 2015 red wines were tasting as this was the kickoff year to harvest and then crush at our winemaking facility. Below are some snapshots and a quick video of the day.

Dean's List Spring Pickup Party

We hosted our first Dean's List Pickup Party on April 8th and partnered with the Napa Valley Film Festival. As a benefit to local pickup members, we released our inaugural 2015 Reserve Chardonnay Southworth, 2016 Viognier and 2013 Midnight. Select short films were shown on behalf of NVFF to gear up for the 2017 festival in November. Our Dean's List members also receive a special rate with exclusive hotels and inns including the Hampton Inn & Suites Napa, who also attended with a table setup for a complimentary night's stay. We plan to host another pickup party for the Fall shipment so stay tuned on details!

Mustard Flowers / Cover Crop / Canes

We love this time of year here in Napa Valley. A welcome break from the torrential (but much needed) rain allowed for our vineyard management team to prune and tie canes in our vineyard. Our cover crop (grown for the protection and enrichment of the soil) consists of alternate rows of legumes such as Austrian winter peas, barley as well as mustard. Come visit our vineyard to see the gorgeous and bright mustard flowers.
