2017 Summer Concert Series at Wente Vineyards
Over the past few decades, California’s wine industry has undergone a transformation from being a well-kept secret to containing some of the most highly regarded and sought-after wines in the world. Place-names like the Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley are synonymous with high quality vineyards, grape processing, and vinting. Among the top tiers of this wine paradise is Wente Vineyards.
Located in the Livermore Valley, one of the most picturesque and historic wine production regions in California, Wente Vineyards wine production is the result of 130 years of experience and heritage. In fact, the Wente Vineyards, which has run continuously during its nearly century-and-a-half existence, is the oldest family operated winery in the United States. This alone makes the location a worthwhile visit.
BUT: for the past 30 years Went Vineyards has offered a concert series that draws world-class and world renowned acts to their quiet valley. Paired up with an exquisite dining service, the concert series at Wente Vineyards has, over the past several decades, hosted noted acts such as:
- Ringo Starr
- Harry Connick, Jr.
- Lynyrd Skynyrd
- Third Eye Blind
- Willie Nelson
- Sheryl Crow
This year, the concert series, which runs from July 12th to September 19th, will feature a no less impressive array of guests. Fans of jazz, classic rock, R&B, and heartfelt singer/songwriter material will thrill at the chance to see some of the world’s most successful musicians while drinking fine wine and eating at a pristinely laid table. Acts coming to the Wente Vineyards this year include:
- Kenny Rogers
- Chris Isaak
- Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
- Boz Scaggs
- Diana Krall
- Smokey Robinson
- Collective Soul
These are only a few of the acts who will fill the Livermore Valley with song and sunshine. For a full list, refer to the organization’s website: The Concerts at Wente Vineyards
