The Evening’s Special Guests Include Filmmakers Matthew Helfgott & Jared Hillman of “The Listing Agent,” which won Best Narrative Short – Honorable Mention at the Napa Valley Film Festival 2013

In partnership with the San Jose and Walnut Creek Short Film Festivals & Napa Valley Film Festival, Jessup Cellars presents a series of short film and wine pairing screenings at our Tasting Gallery in the Napa Valley’s village of Yountville. Running monthly December through March, each gathering features four award-winning shorts paired with a Jessup Cellars wine and Chef MikeC’s Wok-Popped Flavor-Infused Popcorn. Our February and March screenings will spilt the bill between films from both the Walnut Creek Short Film Festival and Napa Valley Film Festival. Special thanks to Sony for their support in screening our featured films with their state-of-the-art 65″ HDTV, Soundbar System and Blue Ray Player.

Online Tickets: General $25 | Members $15

Check out William Bucquoy’s photos from our January 18th screening!

From animation to comedy to drama, Jessup Cellars promises to take guests on an emotional and inspirational ride through the cinematic and culinary arts. The screenings will be followed by meet-and-greets with filmmakers and the opportunity to purchase wines in support of indie short film projects. Projects will be chosen through, and supported via, crowd funding sites such as Indiegogo.com at the close of the series in March 2013.
