Sutter Home Family Vineyards Named Official Wine Brand for Napa Valley's "Live in the Vineyard" and Premier Voyage of "Live in the Vineyard at Sea"


Sutter Home Family Vineyards has been named the official wine brand of “Live in the Vineyard” (LITV), which kicks off year five on November 1st with a "once in a lifetime" weekend of wine, music and food in Napa Valley. This year's festival includes performances by Alanis Morissette, Gavin DeGraw, Adam Lambert, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Casey Abrams, Ryan Star, Martin Harley, A Rocket to the Moon and Hedley.

For the first time ever, LITV and Sutter Home will take their amazing line-up of recording artists, winemakers, and celebrity chefs to the seas for a seven-day Caribbean cruise, "Live in the Vineyard at Sea". The cruise will take place November 9 - 16, 2013 aboard Brilliance of the Seas, from the Royal Caribbean's Radiance class.

Attendees will experience a total immersion in music, wine and food. The cruise will make stops at Grand Cayman (George Town), Falmouth (Jamaica), and Labadee. For information or to purchase tickets, visit

“Sutter Home is thrilled to be a part of the amazing 'Live in the Vineyard' experiences in Napa Valley and at sea,” according to Senior Director of Marketing for Sutter Home Winery, Wendy Nyberg. “Wine and music are the perfect blend. They both allow for personal interpretation and contribute to a balanced lifestyle."

The new “Live in the Vineyard at Sea” cruise will include live performances and private events from some of the biggest names in music including Five for Fighting, Green River Ordinance, Martin Harley, Marc Broussard, and pop-emerging superstar Andy Grammer.

LITV's passion for wine and food brings on-board “specialty” restaurants and a wide variety of cooking demonstrations, hands-on culinary programming, vertical wine tastings, wine blending courses, wine appreciation courses, and “Chef's Tables” with exclusive chef and winemaker pairings from some of the Napa Valley's most celebrated wineries and restaurants.

“Live in the Vineyard” was created five years ago by Bobbii Jacobs and Claire Parr, who together share over 40 years of experience in the music industry. The duo commented, "Sutter Home is a great fit for Live in the Vineyard. It's a legend that started in the Napa Valley and we hope to do the same."
