The History of Wine and Jazz in the 20th Century
Renowned trumpeter Louise Baranger and her band will play jazz repertoire that compliments the wines as her equally renowned husband, Fred Tregaskis, explains how the histories of wine and jazz are intertwined throughout the 20th century. This is the first in a monthly series of Wine & Jazz Matinees; each of the three monthly shows will have a different musical theme and wine selection. This first show is themed around the history of jazz in the 20th century and the wines that were popular during those eras.

You’ll get to sample and enjoy four different wines over the course of the event, with additional glasses available for purchase. The event is limited to around 70 guests so that all who attend have tables and room to move as the music and spirits inspire.
