Grove Winery and Vineyards defends its title of runner-up for Best Outdoor Music Space by News & Record readers with a 10-show 2012 concert lineup, featuring blues, folk, rock, and Americana. Jon Shain opens the season on April 20 with a sway-inducing mélange of squeezebox and shuffling guitar. Jazz, blues, and folk festivals counterpoint summer’s swelter with dozens of local artists, as well as the scintillating mandolin-funk jams and psychedelic lyrics of Hanging Thread. To cap the season on October 19, Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands unleash an operatic barrage of “swirling carnival waltzes and blaring border canciónes [that] inhabit the same folk-lore turf as Bright’s noir-ish forest-friendly narratives,” according to Shuffle Magazine.
Most shows take place on the third Friday of each month and feature food vendors, award-winning Grove wines, and beers from concert sponsor Natty Greene’s Pub & Brewing Co. Kids 10 and younger receive free admission.<p>
Grove Winery and Vineyards
While in Sonoma on business in 1992, tech entrepreneur Max Lloyd fell in love with the fermented grape. Though his father and grandfather had been in the business of winemaking, it wasn't until his encounter with California-grown, European-style varietals that he resolved to dabble in the family trade himself. Launched as a part-time project in Virginia and transplanted to its current location in 2001, Grove Winery and Vineyards culls its grapes from two estate vineyards that span more than 70 acres in addition to a handful of local vineyards. The staff meticulously handpicks the grapes and gently presses them with a basket press to yield their fresh milk.
