  1. Duel of Wine

    Nicolás Carreras / Independent / World Cinema features, Food & Wine On Film / Argentina, Italy, Spain / 2016 / Adventure, Comedy, Food, Nature, Romance, Wine / 95 mins
    The famous Sommelier Charlie Arturaola fell from grace after a momentary loss of his taste during the shooting of a movie. The image of "a Sommelier without palate" destroyed his career. After a few years, Charlie becomes a taxi driver, but he never gave up of dreaming to get his reward back. When Charlie accidently gets to know the newcomer Italian sommelier, he will come with a crazy plan to try to get back into the wine world!

    Rosé... is, well, Rosé. Chèvre is goat cheese... and Vernet?

His work is the inspiration for our Closing Night film "FRENCH TOUR - Tour de France" with Gérard Depardieu. Come to the films and Reception Friday afternoon and see reproductions of Vernet's French Ports series. After the films, Robert Rex of Deerfield Ranch winery will discuss his philosophy of Rosé and we will sample a taste of his rosé as well as Ashton Vineyards Rosé of Syrah.
