Here's how to romance a movie buff. Go to the St. Francis Outdoor Film Festival on Thursday with a blanket and a picnic. The feature film is "National Lampoon's Vacation," starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo.

The event, from 7 to 11:30 p.m., is free. Sommelier Christopher Sawyer will introduce and pair St. Francis wines with the film.

The winery is at 100 Pythian Road, Santa Rosa. Details: 888-675-WINE or email
