Our first sign of summer is not only the recent warm weather, but also the annual concert series at Chateau Ste. Michelle. We just saw the legendary Bob Dylan, with the incredible Mavis Staples, for an evening of great music and award-winning wine on the lush lawns of the beautiful winery in Woodinville.
Dylan was amazing — his May release of “Fallen Angels” is a return to his roots, and in our opinion, his best since “Blood on the Tracks.”
You too can attend a concert at Chateau Ste. Michelle this summer. While many are sold out, do not fear – a recent check shows there are tickets still available for ten concerts!
Have a look at the series’ concert calendar — there’s something for everybody. When we last checked, there were still tickets for: Tears for Fears (date TBD); Lyle Lovett (July 2); John Fogerty (July 29); Culture Club (Aug. 11); Jackson Browne (Aug. 12); Gipsy Kings (Aug. 25); Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons (Sept. 2); and Chris Isaak (Sept. 4) in addition to the Festival of Jazz (July 30) and the Wine Country Blues Festival (July 31).
Think about it: a lazy summer day or evening, kicking back on the manicured lawns of Chateau Ste. Michelle with a peacock or two sauntering by, as you sip on a refreshing summer wine, nibble on tasty munchies from a picnic basket and listen to some amazing music. Ah, summer!
Better yet, net proceeds from the annual concert series help fund Chateau Ste. Michelle’s charitable contributions program, which supports a broad range of non-profit organizations.
Have questions? No problem, there is an FAQ to help out.
So get your wine on and check it out.
And thank you, Chateau Ste. Michelle, for a wonderful evening.
