Yes, the Hollywood & Vines theme continues to resonate as our wine will be featured at the King Vidor Awards ceremony where Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin will be presented with the prestigious King Vidor Award for Excellence in Filmmaking at the 23rd annual San Luis Obispo International Film Festival on Saturday March 18th.  Actor Jeff Bridges will be on hand to present the award to Josh Brolin and I'll be on hand to present them both with a nice glass of our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Alexander Valley Cab Reserve! No, really!  I'll also be speaking at the event earlier in the day talking about film stuff, but at night...we toast!

Cheers!  Gil
