Mountain Winery

14831 Pierce Rd., Saratoga; 408.741.0763; www.mountainwinery.com

Tickets: Ticketmaster, 408.998.TIXS

Don't Miss: Elvis Costello and the Impostors, Pat Benatar, Diana Krall, Jewel, Wynonna, Jonny Lang and comedian Wayne Brady and Friends

Comments: The beautiful setting of this magical venue is enough to make any concert held here worthwhile. Miles from everywhere and accessible only by a long and winding mountain road, the Mountain Winery offers an escape from the Silicon Valley chaos blinking below. Whether tailgating in the parking lot, picnicking on the mountainside or dining under the sky inside the gates, a visit to the Winery is a special treat. Add the legendary musicians' intimate performances and a night there becomes memorable. This year's series offers a diverse selection of pop, jazz, Latin, blues, country and Motown, plus several '80s acts, including a four-night run by Huey Lewis and the News that closes out the summer.
