Surprise performance at Chateau Ste. Michelle
Singer Jim Messina gave a surprise performance at Chateau Ste. Michelle's Summer Garden Party held Aug. 20 for the winery's Vintage Reserve Club members. Invitations to attend the event, which included a private concert and wine tasting reception, were limited to club members.
Messina, best known for his association with fellow musician Kenny Loggins, entertained an audience of approximately 1,300. The artist's identity remained a mystery until he walked onstage. His 1 1/2 hour concert included old favorites along with more recent material.
Prior to the concert, guests enjoyed light hors d'oeuvres paired with Chateau Ste. Michelle single vineyard and reserve wines on the winery's landscaped grounds. Chateau Ste. Michelle hosts the annual Summer Garden Party as a special thank you to its Vintage Reserve Club members.
Chateau Ste. Michelle's Vintage Reserve Club offers members the opportunity to receive rare and limited release wines delivered to their homes. Most are single vineyard wines available only through the winery.
