Takin’ It to the…Vineyard?

Layin’ back and sittin’ in the sunshine
Hot wind, I drink me little rum wine
(From the Doobie Brothers’ song “Mamaloi”)

It’s the same old wine
In a brand new bottle
It’s the same old wine
In a brand new bottle
(From Kenny Loggins’ song “Same Old Wine”)

But now the days are short, I’m in the autumn of the year
And now I think of my life as vintage wine from fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs
It poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year
(From Ervin Drake’s song “It Was a Very Good Year,” included on the debut album by The Turtles, “It Ain’t Me Babe”)

We don’t know if the Doobie Brothers will be performing the Reggae-infused “Mamaloi,” or if Kenny Loggins will be singing “Same Old Wine,” or if The Turtles will be singing the song that Frank Sinatra made his own come the weekend of October 6-7.

But may we suggest there could be no better time to revisit those old classics, considering they’ll all be appearing at the 26th annual B.R. Cohn Fall Music Festival.

Why is that venue so appropriate? Because the festival will be taking place on the grounds of the B.R. Cohn Winery. It’s a lovely venue in the tiny Sonoma County community of Glen Ellen, owned by Bruce Cohn—who, before he got into the wine business, managed top music acts including the Doobies.

The weekend also includes a dinner, an auction and a celebrity golf tournament, and it’s all for charity. This year, proceeds will benefit:

Vintage music. Vintage wine. What more do you need for a memorable weekend? Ticket information for the B.R. Cohn Fall Music Festival is available here.
