Great music, beautiful surroundings and award-winning wine at the 2011 Summer Concert Series at Chateau Ste. Michelle.

A sure sign that summer is on its way: Chateau Ste. Michelle just released its 2011 Summer Concert Series lineup!

Think about it: a lazy summer day or evening, kicking back on the manicured lawns of Chateau Ste. Michelle with a peacock or two sauntering by, as you sip on a refreshing summer wine, nibble on tasty munchies from a picnic basket and listen to some amazing music. Ah, summer!

Whether you prefer white, rosé or red wine during the summer, this concert calendar is something to cheer about. The series kicks off on June 4 with The Moody Blues and ends on Sept. 10 with the B-52s and The Human League.

In between, the musicians range from Sarah McLachlan and Friends (July 19) to Gipsy Kings (Aug. 7). There’s something for everyone to rock out to – INXS (July 17), YES and Styx (July 29), Lyle Lovett (June 12), Huey Lewis and The News (Aug. 26), Pink Martini (Sept. 3)  and even Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges and his band performing songs from Crazy Heart (Aug. 28).

Better yet, net proceeds from the annual concert series help fund Chateau Ste. Michelle’s charitable contributions program, which supports a broad range of non-profit organizations.

So get your wine on and check it out. Cheers!
