Boulevard Cinema and Petaluma Gap Winegrowers are sponsoring a series of summer movies.


“Petaluma Gap Wine Nights at the Movies,” combines iconic wine-related movies and Hollywood classics with premium wines from the Petaluma Gap American Viticultural Area (AVA).

The monthly series kicks off Tuesday, June 7 at the Boulevard Cinema, 200 C Street in Petaluma, with a special screening of “Decanted,” a feature-length documentary about the creation of a new winery. Garry Brooks, owner and winemaker of the new Brooks Note Winery and Tasting Room in downtown Petaluma, will co-host this first show and pour two of his acclaimed wines to attendees.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and reserved seating tickets can be purchased for $45 online at cinemawest.com. While watching the film, guests will be able to enjoy complimentary wine and gourmet popcorn, as well as an invitation to book a future tasting at the winery.

Petaluma Gap Wine Nights at the Movies will continue all summer on the following dates with these movies and winery co-hosts:

July 5, “You’ll Be My Son”, with Fogline Vineyards

August 2, “When Harry Met Sally”, with Montagne Russe Wines

September 6, “Steel Magnolias”, with Light of Day Wines

At each screening, a Petaluma Gap Winegrowers Alliance representative will be on hand to share highlights on the AVA’s distinctive and award-winning wines. For more information, send an e-mail to [email protected]

The Petaluma Gap Winegrowers Alliance would like to thank Boulevard Cinemas and its owner, Dave Corkill, for organizing and bringing this series of films to the Petaluma community.

About Wine Hosts

Brooks Note Winery is a small, family-owned winery, focused on crafting wines with elegant structure and balanced acidity that demonstrate maturity and flavor intensity. The June 7 event will feature their 2019 Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir and a 2021 North Shore Rosé, made with 95% Petaluma Gap grapes.

Fogline Vineyards, owned by Petaluma Gap AVA founding member Evan Pontoreiro and his partner, Brent Bessire, is known for its succulent, small-bodied, world-class Pinot and Chardonnay, as well as Syrah and Zinfandel, with all fruit grown above the fog line, chiefly in the Petaluma Gap.

Montagne Russe Wines (the French term for ‘roller coaster’) was started by Kevin Bersofsky in his Napa Valley garage in 2006. After being cited by federal authorities for making too many great wines, he and his team have set their sights on creating the next cult wine label. Montagne Russe specializes in cool-climate Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah, primarily from Petaluma Gap vineyards.

Light of Day Wines is a family-owned winery that produces wines that speak of place and time, from soil to glass, grown with environmentally responsible practices. Their style of winemaking focuses on minimal intervention while guiding the wine into the bottle. The Petaluma Gap offers a beautiful and unique location for farming and winemaking. They are delighted to share our journey with visitors at the cellar or through a shared drink with friends around a table at home.
