Music in the Vineyards: The 2018 Rodney Strong Concert Series

Another summer vacation, another Rodney Strong Vineyards summer concert series to get excited about. The popular Sonoma County winery is opening up their outdoor venue and terrace to the best voices in music, including Motown legends, singers, songwriters, and guitarists.

Attendees are encouraged to pack up their picnic supplies for some outdoor music and fun, right in the middle of the vineyards. Rodney Strong wines (like their Rosé of Pinot Noir, Alexander Valley Cabernet, or Sonoma Coast Chardonnay), non-alcoholic beverages, and farm-to-table eats from North Bay Area food trucks will be available to purchase at each event.
