In partnership with South Coast Winery, the museum welcomes San Diego hit songwriter Jack Tempchin for a special wine tasting & concert event.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of his most popular song, Jack has partnered with South Coast Winery to develop his own Peaceful Easy Feeling Cabernet Sauvignon. This event pairs his sweet tunes like "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Slow Dancing" with the velvety, black cherry aromas of this drinkable Cabernet Sauvignon produced and bottled locally in Temecula, CA.
In addition to a full-length concert, guests will be treated to a complimentary glass of wine & light bites. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Museum's education programs.
Come join Jack for a night of wine and song!
