Each summer, Portola Vineyards host a series of fine jazz concerts outdoors, beside the vineyard. A wine-tasting of our currently released wines is included, and we invite you to bring a picnic. Wine is also available for purchase by the bottle. Music runs 6pm-7:30pm. We are open from 5pm-8pm.
This summer’s program includes:
June 9 | Richard Howell Quartet. Powerful, sensually melodic saxophone.
June 23 | Pat Bianchi Trio. Grammy nominated organist and winner of Downbeat Magazine’s 2016 rising star poll, Pat Bianchi has established himself as one of the premier organists on the international scene today.
July 14 | Cabanijazz Project. Soulful original Latin dance music written by its leader, conga player Javier Cabanillas.
August 4 | Five Ten. Keyboardist/composer Steve Carter, percussionist Ma rquinho Brasil, guitarist/composer Dennis Smith Bass, Grammy nominated Jeff Narell, and Santana alumnus Billy Johnson forge music that excites and electrifies. A benefit concert for Easide College Preparatory School.
August 18 | Charged Particles – The Chick Corea Project. This performance, by tenor saxophonist Tod Dickow and an expanded ensemble, will feature some of Corea’s greatest compositions that are rarely heard live.
