Last year we visited the Robert Mondavi Winery (Napa) on the Saturday before July 4th. Mondavi is the former King of Napa and responsible for much of modern innovation in vineyard technique in No. California. He was the first to make a vineyard a tourist attraction and set out to prove that California wines bested French wines in every way (okay, I’ve been reading his book). The winery is beautiful and the photo of Kevin & I that I love so much was taken at Mondavi. However, we were kicked out early. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band from New Orleans was playing a concert at Mondavi that night – in the vineyard!
So this year I looked into it and they’re playing on Saturday, July 2. I bought us tickets. It was a splurge, but I’m so excited! The Preservation Hall Jazz Band playing in a vineyard. Wow! At the end of the concert there is a special "July 4th" fireworks display. Yay!
