A much-anticipated annual wine country event, the summer concert series was first established by Margrit Mondavi in 1969. With Mrs. Mondavi’s passing in September 2016, the winery has renamed the series the “Margrit Mondavi Summer Concert Series” to honor her commitment to music in the Napa Valley. In its 48-year history, the series has raised millions to support a number of Napa Valley-based charitable music organizations. In keeping with this tradition, Robert Mondavi Winery will donate proceeds from this year’s ticket sales to directly benefit the Napa Valley Unified School District’s music programs.
Tickets are on sale April 11 at 10 a.m. PDT and prices vary by performance. Doors open at 5 p.m. with performances beginning at 7 p.m. at the Robert Mondavi Winery, 7801 St. Helena Highway in Oakville, Napa Valley.
