Chateau Ste. Michelle and Maryhill wineries are using Washington Wine Month to help promote their newly announced summer concert series.

Several of the music industry’s biggest stars will be performing at both wineries, which provides options for those hoping to see Carlos Santana, Steve Winwood, The Doobie Brothers, Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs, ZZ Top or the Goo Goo Dolls.

The Woodinville icon opens its 33rd annual Summer Concert Series on Thursday, June 1 with Elvis Costello as part of its year-long 50th anniversary celebrations. Tickets are available at www.ticketmaster.com, and many of the shows sell through quickly because of Ste. Michelle’s 10,000-member wine club.

Chateau Ste. Michelle will stage 27 concerts from June 1 through Sept. 15 at its 4,300-seat outdoor amphitheater. Headliners also include John Legend, The Moody Blues, Chris Isaak, Blondie & Garbage, Lyle Lovett & his Large Band, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, Natalie Merchant, Diana Krall, Marc Antoine, David Sanborn, Herb Alpert & Lani Hall, Bryan Ferry, Chicago, Gipsy Kings and Pink Martini.

Maryhill 5-show series begins June 25

On the edge of the dramatic Columbia Gorge, tickets for Maryhill’s five concerts are going fast, with its series-opening show featuring 10-time Grammy-Award winner Carlos Santana already a sellout.

Winery owners Craig and Vicki Leuthold will present a pair of concerts in August — Michael McDonald with Boz Scaggs and ZZ Top with The Doobie Brothers — and two shows in September with Steve Winwood and The Goo Goo Dolls joined by Phillip Phillips.

Tickets are available at maryhillwinery.com or Ticketfly (1-877-435-9849) on Friday with prices ranging from $46 to $100.

The Leutholds opened their winery in 2001 and grown it to one Washington’s largest and most successful brands, producing 80,000 cases annually. In 2015, Wine Press Northwest magazine named Maryhill its Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year, a year after the San Francisco International Wine Competition singled out Maryhill as its winery of the year.

Net proceeds from the Chateau Ste. Michelle series provide assistance to more than 400 non-profit organizations.

“We are very proud to host our popular summer concert series to support worthy charitable organizations in our community,” said Ted Baseler, President and CEO of Ste. Michelle Wine Estates.

All shows feature general festival seating on the lawn, as well as reserved seating. Performances take place regardless of weather.

The Chateau Ste. Michelle wine shop is open before all concerts with wine and picnic items available for purchase, including the winery’s commemorative bottling of its 50th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon which pays tribute to the first 1967 vintage. Food vendors will offer a selection of menu items for sale in the amphitheater.

Concert-goers may also bring their own picnic baskets and non-alcoholic beverages. (The Washington State Liquor Control Board requires that all alcoholic beverages consumed on the winery grounds be purchased at the winery.)
