Celebrate the 28th season of Music in the Vineyards, the nationally-acclaimed chamber music festival held each summer in the Napa Valley. Each concert, set amidst a winery, barrel room, or wine cave venue, is hosted by Artistic Director Michael Adams whose irreverent introductions and program notes are a beloved feature. With breathtaking views of the Napa Valley and free wine at intermission, this unique combination of wine country ambiance and world class talent allows artists and audiences alike to experience chamber music in uniquely intimate settings, as it was intended to be performed.
