My girl! Jill Scott! I’m what you call a Jill Super Fan… I know all the tracks of every album since ‘This is Jill Scott’. So when I learned she was coming to town… and at a winery, no less, there was not much of a discussion!
The Mountain Winery is such a great venue! And they have a great lineup of concerts during their Summer Concert Series. It’s an outdoor venue with multiple on-site restaurants for the perfect date night, girls night, whatever! Seating is such that wherever you are in the venue, you have great seats! My honey and I enjoyed a reasonably-priced cheese plate and wine before the concert at one of the smaller eateries at the top of the mountain, which overlooked the stage.
Jill… well she of course never disappoints. She didn’t take her heels off this show, but she still murdered the stage! She remixed a lot of her earlier fan favorites which was cool and performed some of the hits from her latest album ‘Woman’!
Pros: Really great outdoor venue; Multiple options for a more formal dinner and show or if you just want to try the wine and snack. A concert at a winery… how cool is that!
Cons: It’s rarely warm in Northern California so bring a jacket! Traffic getting out of the venue was pretty bad but that seems to be the norm for concert venues these days!
