Cameo Cinema

This year the St. Helena’s Cameo Cinema Drive-In is more than just an outdoor movie. Together with partners, Charles Krug Winery and Chef ‘Nash’ Cognetti, they are meeting at the intersection of nostalgia, social distancing, great wine and good eatin’.  Charles Krug wines and generous plates of charcuterie will be available for purchase on site, or select one of Chef’s three boxed al fresco meals that are inspired by each movie. In addition to dinner, don’t forget to pre-order your popcorn!

Blue Note performers

We are excited that the well-known music venue Blue Note Napa at the historic Napa Valley Opera House has announced a partnership with Charles Krug, Napa Valley’s oldest wine estate, to temporarily present outdoor shows, safely offering world class live music this May to September. Charles Krug will host two shows per night every Friday, Saturday and Sunday accommodating up to 260 guests per show at socially distanced, bistro-style tables. Guests can purchase food and beverages from the Tre Posti menu while enjoying live music from a wide range of local and national acts.
