Historic B.R. Cohn Winery Hosts Weekend of Fun
Producers of BottleRock Napa Valley Revive Live Music at Sonoma Valley WineryGlen Ellen, Sonoma County, CA — Music returned over the weekend to the B.R. Cohn Winery after a three-year hiatus with the wildly successful Sonoma Harvest Music Festival. Produced by BottleRock Presents, producers of BottleRock Napa Valley, the 2018 Sonoma Harvest Music Festival was held on September 22 and 23, on the grounds of the historic winery in Glen Ellen, Sonoma County. Under ideal weather, a charming wine country setting and famous Sonoma hospitality, the music festival was a treat to the ears, eyes and taste buds. The Avett Brothers headlined the festival on Saturday, September 22, and The Head and the Heart headlined on Sunday, September 23.
“We are very proud of the experience we were able to provide our attendees,” stated Dave Graham, Partner, BottleRock Presents. “No other music festival offers this level of musical talent in such an intimate venue, paired with Sonoma’s laid back hospitality, great wine and food. By capping our attendance at 3000 each day, we essentially created a music festival for people who don’t like larger sized music festivals.”
Musical PerformancesIn addition to The Avett Brothers on Saturday, September 22, the festival featured Lake Street Dive, Shovels & Rope, The Suffers and Royal Jelly Jive. Joining The Head and the Heart on Sunday, September 23 were Rodrigo Y Gabriela, ZZ Ward, Rayland Baxter and Con Brio. Situated in the picturesque Sonoma Valley, the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival at B.R. Cohn Winery captured the essence of Sonoma wine country and featured a much more intimate experience than most music festivals in the country. Highlighting the comfortable and approachable Sonoma County lifestyle, the festival offered music, wine and food lovers an opportunity to experience a premium festival where every seat was steps from the artist in a tucked away setting surrounded by stunning vineyard and mountain views.
“B.R. Cohn Winery has a longstanding music heritage and live music is in our DNA,” explained Pat Roney, CEO and Founding Partner of Vintage Wine Estates, who purchased the winery in 2015. “Our dream was to bring music back to the estate in a big way, with world-class artists performing in our beautiful natural amphitheater overlooking Olive Hill Vineyard, and I believe we succeeded!”
