Kicking off the series on July 1, soul musician Allen Stone opens for headliner Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, an alternative rock singer/songwriter. The winery’s annual fireworks display will top off the evening. The iconic soul vocalist and multi-GRAMMY award-winner Patti LaBelle performs on July 8.

Michael Franti & Spearhead perform on July 22, serving up their signature mix of hip hop, funk, jazz, folk, and rock. Closing out the series on July 29 is multi-GRAMMY award-winner Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, known for their eclectic mix of blues, folk, soul, reggae and rock.
In addition to the musical performances, guests can enjoy food from Napa Valley’s Oxbow Public Market. Featured vendors will include C Casa, Five Dot Ranch and more! Vintage Sweet Shoppe and Ben & Jerry’s will participate to add a sweet finish to the evening’s culinary offerings. Wine will also be available for purchase.
A much-anticipated annual wine country event, the summer concert series was first established by Margrit Mondavi in 1969. With Mrs. Mondavi’s passing in September 2016, the winery has renamed the series the “Margrit Mondavi Summer Concert Series” to honor her commitment to music in the Napa Valley. In its 48-year history, the series has raised millions to support a number of Napa Valley-based charitable music organizations. In keeping with this tradition, Robert Mondavi Winery will donate proceeds from this year’s ticket sales to directly benefit the Napa Valley Unified School District’s music programs.
Ticket pricing varies by performance and seating location. Doors open at 5 p.m. and performances begin at 7 p.m. at the Robert Mondavi Winery, 7801 St. Helena Highway in Oakville, Napa Valley.
