To supplement their wine business they've diversified, with a posh restaurant on site, a golf course, and a little concert venue where this year they're hosting a "legends" series; Liza Minelli, Willie Nelson, and tonight Earth, Wind & Fire. A friend's brother was into them when I was growing up, and Hannah had one song on a tape she got free with breakfast cereal, but I have to admit to being more interested in the free buffet.
Everything was very nicely done, and we sat around corporate tables on the lawn enjoying food and drink. There was a customer survey card left at each table setting, with the first question being "Do you own a Mercedes Benz?" I didn't bother to look at the rest. It got quite chilly, although the wine maker who introduced the band told us that this was perfect for the grapes. They're obviously made of hardier stuff them us.
The band was excellent, and funkier than they should have been given their age (next year they celebrate 40 years together! Although I think only three original members are left out of about 12). We danced and cheered, which warmed things up considerably. Chevron linked to environmental warming? Nah.
Plenty of people could answer "yes" to customer survey question one.
The band! Earth on the left, Wind on the right, Fire in the middle.
