Wine & Song
by Nickel & Nickel on April 18, 2012
Let’s face it: it’s not every day that we get to host a superstar band for an intimate performance in the Barrel Cellar. But Thursday, April 12, was such a day.
Guests of Live in the Vineyard gathered in the Gleason Barn for tastes of 2010 Truchard Chardonnay before moving to the South Fermentation barn for a selection of Single-Vineyard Cabernets, delicious appetizers and cheeses.
Crispy pork belly wonton with sour cherry chow chow, Saba dressing and micro cilantro—just one of the beautiful hors d’oeuvres coming from Chef Trevor Eliason’s kitchen.
The band Fun. is currently at the top of Billboard’s and iTunes’ charts—and with good reason. The sound of their music filled the Barrel Cellar—resonant vocals, expert keyboard and deft guitar. We, the lucky audience, were captivated from the first note.

Following the concert, guests mingled in the Gleason Barn, sipping on 2006 Dolce and assorted bite-sized tarts. And when Fun. came out for a meet-and-greet, you can bet there were plenty who gathered to get their photos snapped with the band.

Many thanks to Fun., Live in the Vineyard and to all who joined us for this stellar experience!
