Music and the outdoors are naturally compatible, as evidenced by the singing of birds, the whistling of wind in the trees, and the gentle banjo strumming of idle meerkats. Revel in outdoor sounds with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get admission for two to a Jazz’n the Vines outdoor concert and a bottle of Zydeco Rosato wine at Pontchartrain Vineyards in Bush (up to a $32 value, tax included). Today’s Groupon is valid for the following performances:
- Saturday, October 1, featuring Benny Grunch and The Bunch
- Saturday, October 15, featuring Don Vappie
- Saturday, October 29, featuring Seago’s Sentimental Serenaders
All outdoor concerts are from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.; the gates open at 5:30 p.m., and children 17 and younger receive free admission.
Pontchartrain Vineyards blankets 34.5 acres of land with picturesque vinescapes from which it draws the fruits to produce more than a half-dozen quaffable quenchers. Upon admission to a Jazz’n the Vines concert, purchasers of today’s Groupon will receive a bottle of Zydeco Rosato, a salmon-shaded Louisiana rosé that whets the appetite with hints of crisp apples, juicy strawberries, and springy squeezeboxes. Depending on the night, concertgoers may tune in to the humorous, local tunes of Benny Grunch and The Bunch, the soulful southern and Brazilian jazz of banjo master Don Vappie, or the bygone sounds of big band brass with the Seago’s Sentimental Serenaders. Although not included with this Groupon, food from Windfield Farms is available for purchase, along with all of Pontchartrain Vineyards’ exquisite vinos, keeping taste buds busy as toes tap to the music and eyebrows waggle in the fresh air. The Groupon is good for a bottle of Zydeco Rosato wine. No substitutions.
