General Admission is $15 with special discounts available to season ticket-holders and Parducci Wine Club members. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and music begins at 7:00. Net proceeds from the series’ wine sales help support the Alex Rorabaugh Center for kids.
Situated under an airy canopied patio overlooking the winery’s hillside estate, Parducci Director of Events and Direct Sales, Spencer Brewer, said, “The Acoustic Café atmosphere transports people to an old world event: everyone listening and dancing to great music while eating and drinking wine with friends and family overlooking the vineyards and mountains.” A cushioned dance floor is a favorite centerpiece of the venue.

Wine Spectator details how Parducci partner Tim Thornhill flew down to L.A. to personally pour the winery's True Grit Petite Sirah (its Hollywood debut!) at the cast screening of the Coen brothers' new film, "True Grit."
Wine Spectator writes: "Petite Sirah is considered one of Mendocino County’s heritage grape varieties. 'We’ve got some vineyards in the county that have survived both Prohibition and phylloxera, and we’ve got some of our fruit coming from third-generation Petite Sirah growers,' Thornhill said."
"The True Grit label bears a line drawing of a pair of boots with spurs and the words 'indomitable of spirit, enduring and steadfast, rugged and appealing.' Sounds like the Duke to us."
