Red, White, and Blues at Vino in the Valley

Great wine, delicious food, and awesome music… Commemorate the Independence Day holiday by joining us for Red, White and Blues on Sunday, July 3, featuring the music of Trevor Marty and the Tommy Bentz Band with our famous fireworks show at dusk.

Grab family and friends for a fun afternoon and evening in the valley. Take a tractor tour around the vineyard, enjoy a glass of wine or a beer on the patio, listen to blues music over a pasta dinner… Then grab your lawn chairs or blanket and settle in for the fireworks show after dusk!

It’s a patriotic evening in the valley you won’t want to miss!

The last seating of the night will be at 9pm (our staff want to take in the fireworks, too!). There’s no admission charge. Sorry, no carry-on allowed on the grounds.

Check out this entertainment line-up!

3:30pm – 5:30pm Trevor Marty

Singer-songwriter guitarist Trevor Marty plays in a classic style drawing on Blues, Folk and Americana. Trevor performs regularly around the Midwest with his base in Rochester, MN. He’s a 4th generation gigging musician; for the last 80 years someone in his family has been entertaining the masses and it’s Trevor’s turn at bat. Whether he’s playing a resonator or his flattop guitar, his joy for playing is palpable and addictive!

6:00pm – 9:00pm Tommy Bentz Band

The Tommy Bentz Band is a trio that often gets described as Van Morrison meets the Allman Brothers. Led by singer-songwriter Tommy Bentz, one hears strong soulful vocals with tasty slide and lead guitar, a rock-solid rhythm section with tight vocal harmonies that often makes the listener think that as many as 5-6 people are on stage. The band tours around the Midwest and yearly to the UK, for their annual fall tour, playing 2 blues-rock festivals in Ireland and Scotland this September. Enjoy blues and blues rock classics from artists like Clapton, Allman Brothers, SRV, The Band, Freddie King, as well as songs from their 4 original albums.
