(September 21st, 2020, San Jose, CA) – Prescription Vineyards, a passion project between Rob and Bonnie Lloyd and Clarksburg winegrower James Reamer, announces its partnership with the 12th Annual San Jose Int’l Short Film Festival – Home Edition. Like many film festivals in 2020, the event is going virtual with screenings of 100-plus short films, filmmaker interviews, and exclusive musical performances by international recording artists.

The festival runs October 22nd through 25th and offers a limited VIP Festival Wine Experience with Prescription Vineyards. The package includes the winery’s 2018 Clarksburg Chardonnay, 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (inaugural sneak peek), buttery popcorn, exclusive film panels, festival swag, and access to watch any screening, any show on any day. The VIP Festival Wine Experience Passes are just $99 each. Buyers must be 21+ to purchase.

Receive Festival Discount Passes

Wine and film fans may sign up for Prescription’s newsletter to receive 20% off film festival passes. “After so many months of sheltering in place, we jumped at the opportunity to partner with the San Jose Int’l Short Film Festival – Home Edition,” said winemaker Rob Lloyd. “Bonnie and I love supporting independent artists and are excited to share the opportunity for discount festival passes. For us, we cannot wait to curl up on the sofa with our daughters and binge-watch these world-class films.”

“Music and fine wine have been a long tradition at our festival,” said co-founder and co-producer, Bill Hargreaves. “We’re grateful that Prescription Vineyards, A&R Worldwide and Passport Approved Radio have helped us transition these experiences to our virtual event.”

Prescription Vineyards has been garnering consistent 90+ scores, which has led to many new retail store and fine wine shop placements in more than 21 states. Locations may be found by using the winery’s new online Store Locator. Please note that the inaugural release of its 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is currently available exclusively at the winery’s online store prior to going into national distribution for the holidays.

A&R Worldwide Musical Showcases

The Lloyd’s are also passionate music fans, so their team has worked with their friends at A&R Worldwide and Passport Approved Radio to bring international recording artists to the festival. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the evening screenings will open with countdown discovery showcase performances by Switzerland’s Veronica Fusaro, Australia’s Hamish Anderson, and Ohioan Gina Brooklyn. A&R Worldwide’s discovery and development history of artists include Coldplay, Katy Perry, Keane, Adele, Muse, Sia, Gavin James, and many more chart-topping artists.

“Some of the most iconic and memorable moments in film and other forms of visual content have been made even more powerful with the perfect song or soundtrack. A&R Worldwide recognizes the important intersection between music and the big screen; its ability to support the storytelling and evoke emotions as well as change the trajectory of many artist’s careers,” said Tyler Polzin, Vice President at A&R Worldwide. “Rob and Bonnie of Prescription Vineyards have been longtime supporters of the work we do through our MUSEXPO event in Los Angeles. We’re very excited to help deliver some of that great global music talent to the film festival!”

Rob and Bonnie Lloyd are co-owners and founders of Prescription Vineyards and their luxury label, Lloyd Cellars. Prescription is a project born out of mutual respect between a grower and a winemaker. After working with James Reamer on several other projects over the years, it became apparent that his grapes and Rob’s wine style was a perfect match. Rob enjoys crafting big, rich Chardonnays balanced with perfect acidity, and James grows bold Chardonnay grapes.

The partnership’s result has led to consistent 90+ scores and quickly growing distribution into 21 states with many major retail placements. Available at $20 a bottle, Prescription has been a big hit with consumers for its quality-to-value ratio, and Bonnie’s vision for creating the eye-catching, prohibition-inspired label. To learn more about Rob’s history as a winemaker at multiple iconic Chardonnay-driven wineries, and the upcoming release of the label’s inaugural 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, visit PrescriptionVineyards.com.
