Thornton Winery Events, Temecula

Thornton Winery, in Temecula, California has a wonderful concert series each year called the Champagne Jazz Series.  Last night we were able to attend the last concert for this year that featured two groups. The first group was with Chris Standring.  Chris, a classically trained guitarist was the lead guitarist. Several other instruments accompanied Chris including strings. Most of his music related to his growing up on a farm in England and striving to reach London.

The second group was Fourplay. These four musicians were Bob James, Nathan East, Chuck Loeb and Harvey Mason. The quartet provided delightful contemporary jazz.

Those who attend the Thornton Concerts can choose between seating in the audience or a specially prepared three-course dinner with wines. Last night’s dinner featured Crab and Mango Salad, Hoisin Glazed Beef Short Ribs and Red Berry Tart. Dinner was delectable. The crab salad was light and tasty. The beef short ribs melted in the mouth. The dessert while sweet was not too sweet.

While last night’s concert was the last for 2010, Thornton Winery has several events coming up before the end of the year. Check out these events beginning with October 30/ Halloween Murder Mystery, November 25 is Thanksgiving at Café Champagne, December 25 is Christmas Dinner at Café Champagne and December 31 is New Years Eve Gala. For more information about these events visit the Thornton Winery website as it is updated.

Be sure to watch for next year’s Champagne Jazz Concert Series.

Cheers! Kathy
