Oscar Parties and Film Festivals in Wine Country

0

Napa Valley hosts its 26th Annual Napa Valley Academy Awards Telecast Viewing Party on Sunday, March 2, 2014 beginning at 5 p.m. in downtown Napa.  More than 20 of valley’s finest restaurants will pair tasty treats with wines from local vintners. 

You can also gear up for the Oscars on March 1, 2014 at The World of Pinot Noir “Hollywood & Wine Seminar” in Santa Barbara.  This blind tasting pits the favorites of wine experts and winemakers in the film “Sideways” against the 2012 documentary “Somm”, a movie which focuses on the exciting and challenging world of passing the Master Sommelier Exam.  

Sunset magazine wine editor Sara Schneider will lead a discussion on what these two movies tell us about the position and power of wine in our culture.
