If you’ve always wanted to attend the Napa Valley Film Festival but never quite found the time to do so, this is the year to make it happen. The 2019 Napa Valley Film Festival is going to be spectacular, but it’s not the only reason to visit us this fall. The film festival will be taking place in November, which also happens to coincide perfectly with Napa’s famed Cabernet Season. While Napa Valley has a reputation for quite a few things, the hallmark product of Napa Valley is Cabernet Sauvignon. By the end of harvest each year, new vintages are sitting in barrels beginning their aging process, while products of years’ past are ready to be corked, tasted, and enjoyed. But Cabernet Season is about so much more than exceptionally good wine. It’s a season to sit back, relax, and enjoy a much less crowded and more intimate experience in the country’s top wine tasting region. So this fall, join us not just for the Napa Valley Film Festival, but for the start of Cabernet Season as well. Book your room at our Napa Bed and Breakfast today!
