Thornton Winery Champagne Jazz Series Kicks Off!

May 27th, 2006
The Social Diary Columnist & Photographer Margo Schwab

It's a recipe for a great afternoon! Mix in world class jazz, award winning Thornton Wine, award winning cuisine from Cafe Champagne's Executive Chef Will Greenwood, and set it all in a spectacular, intimate venue, at the Thornton Winery and voila --- the perfect recipe for fun!

And Hosts Sally and John Thornton, and Steve Thornton encourage guests to have fun and they do.

It was easy May 7th to have fun too as Saxophonist Steve Eugene Groove and his band, Euge Groove got started. Groove they did, and it was contagious. Guests got up and danced. Smiles were everywhere.

Many enjoyed courses of a gourmet supper paired with Thornton NV Blanc De Noir, Thornton 2004 Chardonnay and Thornton NV Cuvee de Frontignan.

And with a Summer line up including Hiroshima, Ottmar Liebert, Brian Culbertson, Mindi Abair and Keiko Matusi, Bobby Caldwell, Acoustic Alchemy and David Sanborn, it's no wonder the Thornton Winery is the place to be for the best of Summer Fun!
