Jessup Cellars ‘Art House Short Film Series’ Inspires Launch of
Inaugural ‘Yountville Int’l Short Film Festival’ February 8 – 11!
Jessup Cellars 5th Annual Art House Short Film Series premieres Saturday, January 20th at Bardessono Resort & Spa and will also be the sneak preview for the inaugural Yountville Int’l Short Film Festival (YISFF) happening February 8th – 11th. The winery pairs award-winning short films featuring special guest filmmakers and producers with Q&A. The magic of the short film experience is elevated by pairing each film with a Jessup Cellars wine and a Chef MikeC wok-popped, flavored-infused popcorn, e.g., Fried Chicken & Mash Potatoes Popcorn paired with Chardonnay.
NOTE: Jessup Cellars is being remodeled in January and February 2018. The Tasting Bar will be open through most of the remodel. We’ll be hosting tasting experiences at our winery in South Napa and pop-up tastings at local Yountville Hotel partners. Follow us on Facebook for ongoing updates or call us at (707) 944-5620 to make a reservation!
