Saturday Night Movies in the Vineyard
A perennial favorite at Montoliva Vineyard & Winery
What do you get when you mix a warm foothill evening, wine and an outdoor movie? Montoliva Vineyard & Winery Saturday Night Movies in the Vineyard, of course. This is season…hmm, I think this might be our 12th year of showing movies in the vineyard. It has always been a pretty low keyed affair. Bring your lawn chair, beach blanket, and a mild sense of adventure. We provide a gorgeous setting, high quality 8ft x 10ft movie screen and state of the art sound and of course, wine. As always we have certain themes. In mid-August, most years, we like to show a musical of some sort. Naturally, one or two movies related to wine. Toss in a personal favorite or three, and we’ve got a summer schedule! Gates open at 7pm, the movie starts at dusk, around 8pm in mid-July. The cost is only $18 for a glass of wine and a movie ($15 for members of the Chicago Park Wine Society). A bargain at twice the price. We even provide popcorn!
some small print: Please note, we used to provide pizza with this event, as a part of the event. In February of 2020, just before the start of the pandemic, this activity caught the eye of the head of the Nevada County Health Department. She strongly insinuated that continuing this tradition could bring difficulties to Montoliva. Thus, we have been forced to suspend that part of our event. Our apologies.
July 16th – A Good Year. A wonderful wine-centric movie starring Russell Crowe (in a movie where he doesn’t beat someone up!)
August 13th – Hard Day’s Night. The Beatles. Come on, you know the words!
August 27th – The Princess Bride. Arrrr, Dread Pirate Roberts insisted we show this one (our annual “Date Night” movie)
