Chateau Ste. Michelle kicks off Sessions concerts
WOODINVILLE, Wash. – For the second straight year, Chateau Ste. Michelle is bringing its popular concert series inside for the winter months.
Beginning this weekend, the Sessions Indoor Concerts return to Washington’s oldest, largest and most-visited winery.
The concept was launched a year ago and focused on smaller, more intimate concerts featuring talented artists with local or regional ties.
General admission seats are $25, while a new pre-concert VIP reception that includes wines and appetizers from executive chef Janet Hedstrom run $45 each.
The wine shop doors open at 7 p.m. for each concert, which is held in the barrel room. Concerts begin at 8 p.m.
This year’s lineup begins with Sunshine Junkies this Saturday. This concert already is sold out.
