31 years ago, Thornton Winery launched what was then called the Champagne Jazz concert series. A few years back, the series was renamed Champagne Concerts, a nod to some of the notable non jazz artists who have graced Thornton’s stage, such as Melissa Etheridge, Chris Isaak and America.
David Vergari continues making award –winning wines and now has a new assistant winemaker, Tom Stolzer with an extensive resumé and years of experience working alongside Jon McPherson and Javier Flores. He has also been honing the winery’s exceptional sparkling wines. Thornton is open late for wine tasting until 7pm Sunday through Thursday and until 9 Fridays and Saturdays in Café Champagne.
