Wente Vineyards, the oldest family-owned winery in the country, is at it again. Travel + Leisure has long celebrated Wente for its picturesque golf course, a world-class destination uniquely situated amongst the vines. What many people do not know, however, is that they also have a gorgeous concert area, where one might hear anything from jazz to hip-hop, classical to electronica. This Saturday, check out their latest event: BottleRockIt. Originally called Discover the Wine Discover the Music, this 5th annual music festival pulls in heavy hitters like Dirty Vegas and GIVERS, while also providing exposure to the emerging artists of the San Francisco Bay Area. Twenty bands will amplify three different stages on this stunning estate. Concert-goers are given the opportunity to do some world-class wine tasting while they bop their heads to the delicious tunes. For $20, you can't beat that for a weekend getaway!
WHEN: Saturday, September 10, 2011. Doors open at 10:30 AM and performances begin at 11 AM.
WHERE: The lawn at the Wente Vineyards Estate Tasting Room; 5565 Tesla Road, Livermore, CA 94550
