For the eighth year, Naggiar Vineyards will again host its wildly successful Winefest summer season. Winefest 2018 is a celebration of the vineyards, the wine, the food, and the music that has made Naggiar Vineyards the eight time KCRA3 A-List Best Winery in the Sacramento Region. Winefest is comprised of Tribute concerts, numerous celebratory events, complimentary live music on Saturday nights, and the only Eco Shuttle Vineyard Tour in the Sierra Foothills! And don’t forget about their award winning wines and warm customer service.
“People are passionate about our wines and since great wines start in the vineyards, we thought it would be a great idea to showcase and educate visitors and customers about our vineyards and farming practices so that they can see firsthand and appreciate the role of the vineyards in producing great wines.” says Naggiar Vineyards co-owner Mike Naggiar. “And two years ago, we added our fully-guided Eco Shuttle Vineyard Tours which are unique to the Foothills. These tours take you from vine to wine, literally!” “These tours are only offered twice a month and space is limited to only 13 per tour.” So book early!
The Naggiar wines will take center stage at a Release Party on Saturday, May 19th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. There will be music by popular Nevada County duo Dream & Dreamer, barrel tastings, and the introduction of new vintage wines. Additional information will be available on the Naggiar website as it becomes available. In addition, it’s never too early to mark your calendars for Naggiar’s annual Harvest Festival happening Sunday, September 16th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Guests will be treated to music by The Neon Playboys, while also participating in such fun events as grape stomping, a harvest feast, games, raffles, barrel tastings and much more!
Of course, the party really gets started with Naggiar’s first Tribute show of 2018 on May 26th; a tribute to a trifecta of some of country music’s biggest names- Eric Church, Kenny Chesney, and Taylor Swift. High-energy tribute band, CAT- Country Artists Tribute, is sure to kick off Winefest with a rousing set-list of songs by country music’s brightest stars. At Tribute shows, Naggiar’s fine wines are always available for purchase (by the glass and by the bottle) and delicious meals are available for pre-purchase. Gates open at 4:00 pm and the music will begin at 6:00 pm. What better way to make Memorial Day Weekend memorable than to spend it kicking your heels up in the vineyard?
The much-anticipated 2018 Tribute entertainment schedule gets even better from there. Get ready to “alligator rock” out to Kenny Metcalf as Elton and the Early Years, a Tribute to the Music of Elton John, June 30th. July 28th brings an especially poignant tribute night to the waterfront stage with a Tribute to the Music of The Eagles and Tom Petty, featuring Life in the Fast Lane and Mike Furlong’s Tribute to Tom Petty. The show to get your funk on is August 25th with a Tribute to the Music of Bruno Mars by Uptown Funk: A Salute to Bruno Mars. For the final Tribute show of the season, channel your inner “dancing queen” to the fab sounds of ABBAFAB-ABBA, a Tribute to the Music of ABBA. With a line-up like this, you might want to get your tickets “lined-up” early! Additional information on tickets, pre-purchased meals and FAQ’s for all Tribute shows can be found at www.naggiarvineyards.com.
In addition to Tribute shows, a number of other events are planned throughout the season and can be found on Naggiar’s online events calendar:
