Amidst 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.
