Wine and music make a beautiful pairing! Here are the free (with wine purchase) concert series throughout the summer:

Wednesdays, 5:30-8:30pm: Guglielmo Winery presents its Vines and Vibes concert series from May through August with a June lineup that includes the Alison Sharino Band, the HackJammers and Simple Creations. Relax under the large shaded canopy and purchase wine by the bottle or glass—beer for purchase, too. Bring in your own picnic or purchase food from Ricky’s BBQ, which will be on site. No pets (except service animals).

Thursdays, 5:30-9pm: The wildly popular Time for Wine at Clos LaChance Winery goes from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Beer, in addition to wine, is available for purchase along with sliders, salads and garlic fries, all reasonably priced and prepared by their in-house chef. Limited seating is available; bring your own blanket or low lawn chair. No pets (except service animals).

Fridays, 6-9pm: At Sarah’s Vineyards, their Sunset Music Series offers their award-winning wines in a beautiful setting. Limited seating—otherwise bring blankets and low lawn chairs. Performers scheduled for June include Scott Cooper Duo, Jim Ashley, Alanna Lynn and Gropus Cackus. No on site food so bring your own picnic. Well-socialized dogs on leashes are permitted.

Sundays, 1-4pm: Groovin in the Grove at Clos LaChance with acoustic-style artists help to wind down the weekend.

Tips: No outside alcohol is allowed—not even previously purchased wine from these wineries. Bring a sweater as it gets chilly after dark. 21 and over, only.
