Live Music at Little Vineyards Family Winery

Joan and Rich Little grow 17.5 acres of grapes and make no more than 2,500 cases of wine a year at their boutique winery in Glen Ellen. This year, they host five Live Music at Little Vineyards afternoons on their outdoor stage as part of the annual Music from the Vines series; three remain on the schedule, one of which includes guitarist Rich’s own Rich Little Band. Tickets are sold through, not the winery.

June 20: Will Bernards and Freelance Subversives; Victor Little, Joe Begale and Wil Blades with the Rich Little Band. Tickets:

July 18: Joe Craven & The Sometimers with Kate Gaffney.

Aug. 15: The Pebbles, featuring Greg Anton, Stu Allen, Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz, Robin Sylvester and Stephanie Salva.

Tables are sold in configurations of two, four and six seats. All tickets include a glass of wine, souvenir wine glasses and a limited-edition poster commemorating the event.

Situated in the heart of Sonoma Valley, Little Vineyards Family Winery is nestled in the Valley of the Moon between the sunbathed rocky slopes of the Mayacamas and Sonoma Mountain ranges. Our family estate includes 17.5 acres of planted vineyards. The vineyards are cooled in the early mornings and late evenings by coastal fog from the San Francisco Bay. As the fog retreats, the vineyards are warmed by rising daytime temperatures and underground hot springs. The vineyard soil is gravelly, well drained and descends downward to meet the Sonoma Creek.

The Sonoma Valley appellation is ideal for producing quality fruit and outstanding red wines. Zinfandel, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon are the primary varietals planted on our vineyard. We have a small block of vines that we call our Spice Rack consisting of a few rows of varietals like Cabernet Franc, Montepulciano, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot.

Live Music at Little Vineyards is located at: 15188 Sonoma Highway, Glen Ellen, 707-996-2750,
