Temecula: Thornton Winery’s Champagne Jazz Series Celebrates 29 Years

Check Out This Year’s Star Studded Line-up

It all began 29 years ago as an afternoon of live music at Thornton Winery. It has blossomed into one of the longest Celebrations of Jazz Music in Temecula Valley’s Wine Country.

Pete Escovedo, Sheila E and special guest Marcus Anderson kick off this year’s Thornton Winery’s Champagne Jazz festival on July 8th. Chris Isaak will preform on the following week and David Sanborn will be in Temecula on July 30th.

“The series has really evolved into a huge event, it’s such a quaint and intimate concert experience for the audience” said Tonya Wake, director of operations for Thorton Winerys. “You can literally reach out and touch the performers.”
