Just a quick reminder that a great evening of Film Wine & Fun is in store at Niner Wine Estates this Saturday, June 9th when the SLO International Film Festival and Niner Wines collaborate once again on a special summer event you won’t want to miss!
The short films are as delightful and varied as the wines. We’ve chosen a selection of the very best “vintage” comedies, from SLO Film Festival’s 2006 through 2012, all ranging from 10-20 minutes in length…with just enough time between films to fill your glass!
The evening will kick off with a reception in the elegant tasting room from 6:00-7:00pm with snacks and wine tasting. Leo Leo Gelato, DiRaimondo’s Cheese Shop and G. Brother’s Smokehouse will be there offering delicious gelato, cheese and kettlecorn for sale. At 7:00pm, glasses and bottles of wine will be available for purchase to take to the “Screening Room”, just steps from the tasting room. Movies will screen from 7:00-8:30pm, hosted by Festival Director, Wendy Eidson.
And here’s the very best part! It’s FREE (with a suggested donation of $20/person.)
All proceeds will directly support the 2013 SLOIFF. Discounted 2013 SLOIFF Festival Passes will be on sale in the tasting room too!
