Napa Valley Film Festival's Two Wine Documentaries Screen Next Week - On Vina and Zin

The rather posh looking Napa Valley Film Festival, a 5 day affair, launches Wednesday with two films on wine screening. (The catalog's ads are much more upscale than the Mill Valley Film Festival's).

Dossier Zinfandel 

From the Croatian TV, and the folks who made the film Like the Old Vine about Mike Grgich last year, comes a second film - on the history of Zinfandel. It screens twice:

Thursday, Nov. 14 at 1:30 pm in Yountville - followed by a receiption at Grgich Hills
Sunday Nov. 17, 8:30 pm in Calistoga

The Monks of Vina

John Beck's new documentary on the historic Vina winery will show. Having just purchased one of the few remaining new copies of the one and only book on Vina ($125!) this month and having visited Vina for the first time in Sept., I am very much looking forward to seeing this film on a piece of wine history people don't really remember.

Here's the movie trailer.

The Monks of Vina from Beck Media Productions on Vimeo.

It also screens twice:

Thursday, Nov. 14 at 2 pm in Calistoga
Sunday, Nov. 17 at 10 am in Napa
