Winter in St. Helena

We may not have snow here in St. Helena but we sure do have a lot of holiday spirit. Let’s face it, the last few years have been tough. Let’s put all of that behind us for the next few weeks to get out there and have some fun.

One of our favorite Winter activities is the Jingle All The Way Roller Rink at Lyman Park. It is absolutely a holiday miracle. There are lights, bubble domes with areas for lounging, snowflakes, hot chocolate, special nightly events and lots and lots of local grub. Don’t just take our word for it though. Make sure you go and see for yourself.

This November, make plans to come out to scenic and stylish Napa Valley. The region always features arts, culture, and some of the world’s best wines, but late fall brings special and exciting events. 

Every year in November, we bring some of the newest and best examples of filmmaking art to the Napa Valley. Combine great movies with amazing food and legendary wine, and you have a can’t-miss event. 

One of California’s Favorite Film Festivals

Film enthusiasts flock every fall to catch the best and brightest emerging in film from around the world.  Nine unique venues bring their own traditions and approach to the enjoyment of film.

Charles Krug Winery, the oldest in the Valley, will serve as one of the festival hosts. Attendees will appreciate its redwood interior complete with its famous cathedral ceiling, legendary wine selection, and incredible charcuterie offerings.  

Each venue will offer its own custom take on regional hospitality that all attendees will be sure to love. 

Napa Valley Offers Something for Everyone

No other region in the United States can match the Napa Valley when it comes to great wines. Over 400 wineries call the region home. Most wineries strive to transform tasting events into cultural and culinary experiences.

Take the time to tour each of our six towns, each offering visitors a uniquely memorable experience. 

Whether you prefer the luxuriant hot springs and mud baths of Calistoga, shopping in St. Helena, the family-friendly surroundings of American Canyon, or one of our other fun and exciting towns, everyone will find great times in Napa Valley.

How to Get Festival Passes

The Festival offers five separate passes with prices starting as low as $125. Depending on your level of access, you can enjoy a number of film screenings, exciting culinary demonstrations by world-class chefs, wine tastings, and more. 

The “Pass Plus” packages also entitle attendees to experience the opening night party, Friday Nigh Bash, preferred places in lines, and more.

Amazing Accommodations at the El Bonita Motel

The El Bonita Motel creates a convergence of the classic look of a highway motel with world-class amenities and comfort. It retains its 1950s Art Deco style along with hacienda inspired murals in some of our rooms. 

Centered in the heart of the Napa Valley, it provides convenient access to all festival venues, as well as other sites and events in the area.
