Summer Music Series Features Artists Selected by Hollywood’s Famed Hotel Café at Jessup Cellars and for ‘Music on The Lawn’ at The Groezinger Estate at The Estate Yountville — Napa Valley’s Most Convivial Gathering Place

As Jessup Cellars enters the fourth season of producing its intimate Art House Sessions summer music series in collaboration with Hollywood’s famed Hotel Café, the Yountville winery is now partnering with its neighbor, The Estate Yountville, to serve up an acoustic music series ‘two-ways’. Every third weekend from June through October, Jessup Cellars will host its ‘conversation and song’ artist showcase on Saturday evenings, followed the next afternoon by a complimentary (donations accepted in support of Arts Council Napa Valley Education Alliance) Music on the Lawn acoustic concert at the historic Groezinger Estate.

“We’re so excited to partner with Jessup Cellars and expand on the success of its Art House Sessions,” said Kini Sanborn, Director of Sales and Marketing at The Estate Yountville. “Imagine the opportunity to have a deeply personal musical experience where you get to know an artist on Saturday evening,” continues Sanborn, “then it’s followed by a leisurely and social Sunday afternoon being serenaded by your new artist friend under the sun and palms on the Groezinger Estate lawn. This is the one-of-a-kind immersive cultural experience that Yountville has become famously known for.”

The Hotel Café is a world-renown live music venue located in Hollywood, California where music directors from television and film are known to scout for emerging talent. The intimate club has become synonymous with launching the careers of acoustic-based songwriters such as John Mayer, Adele, Damien Rice, Anna Nalick, Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry, Ingrid Michaelson, Priscilla Ahn, Charlotte Martin, Laura Jansen and Meiko.

Attendees of the series can also peruse the upscale specialty shops, art galleries, restaurants, and boutiques at V Marketplace, located on the Groezinger Estate.  Since opening in 1968, this center has been a convivial gathering place for locals and visitors alike, offering an authentic California Wine Country experience.  V Marketplace has distinguished itself as Napa Valley’s landmark icon of shopping, entertainment, and special events, carefully blending the character and charm of yesteryear with a modern-day look and feel.
