Napa Valley Film Festival

November 26, 2017

The ultimate film, food, and wine experience, the Napa Valley Film Festival lights up Wine Country during the most colorful time of the year. Thank you Napa Valley Film Festival for sponsoring this post.

I was invited to attend this year's Napa Valley Film Festival a week ago or so and was very excited to be there alongside some fellow influencers with VIP media access. I flew up to SFO from LAX and spent 5 days in Napa Valley at this stunning house atop a hill surrounded by vineyards hosted by Italics Wine. If you followed me on InstaStory, you know it was a whirlwind! Multiple events and activities were happening at the same time throughout the day for 5 days all over the Napa Valley.
We did as much as we can but some highlights were:
- Eating next to David Arquette and took a funny photo with Elijah Wood at the Opening Party.
- Waking up for 10am wine tastings and drank wine til 2am.
- Tasting so many delicious food such as Morimoto's hamachi fish tacos.
- Drinking wine, wine, and more wine!
- Attending fun celebrity tributes with Will Ferrell (super funny, duh!), Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder, Nancy Meyers, etc.
- Chatting with Austin Stowell for a good half an hour and had no idea who he was until I asked him what he is doing at the film fest and he pulled out his pass and said "I guess I am a rising star..."
- Meeting and chatting with Gregg Sulkin at the riding star showcase.
- Partying up at the Friday Night Bash which included a wrestling ring and naked body painting.
- Watching the documentary The Ataxian and meeting Sean Baumstark (and now so happy to call him my friend). This guy and this film are so inspiring, and I highly recommend everyone to watch it. At times when I am feeling down, I remind myself that these small things do not matter. Be grateful and thankful and to live life fully.
- Eating the most amazing meal and making new friends at one of the Vintner Circle Dinners at Ma(i)sonry.
- Casually peeling an hardboiled egg in the kitchen one morning when Lea Thompson and her daughter Zoey Deutch and Maddie Deutch just walked in and we all started chatting about random things like chickens and my Sony camera.
- Walking the red carpet and attending the infamous Festival Gala.
- Watching the advanced screening of Molly's Game at Uptown Theater.

The above was just some of the many things I did while I was at #NVFF.  It was an experience of a life time! A big thank you to Napa Valley Film Festival for inviting me, Italics Wine for hosting, and Wholefoods Napa and Clover Sonoma for sponsoring!
