A Stroll through New Orleans

July 31 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Thomas L’Etienne went to New Orleans for a break from his doctoral studies in Hamburg and never returned. Instead, the already accomplished clarinettist and saxophonist played with legends of New Orleans’ jazz such as Kid Thomas, Emanuel Sayles, Chester Zardis and James Brooker. He met and married the New Orleans Jazz Ambassador Lillian Boutte, touring the world with her until she became too ill to work. Denny and Andy joined Lillian’s band in the early 2000s and the three became firm friends, performing at major jazz festivals in Europe, North America, and Australia. Listen to them play the best of New Orleans Jazz while you relax on the wine terrace.

Vineyard gates open at 12.00pm midday, and guests are welcome to enjoy drinks on the wine terrace. Food will be served between 1 – 2.00pm before the music starts at around 3.00pm.

Tables for up to 6 people are available. Each table of 6 booked in advance will receive a complimentary bottle of wine. 
Wines from our own vineyard as well as guest wines, local beers and soft drinks will be served at our bar. 

You can pre-order food which will be prepared by the Little Urban Chef.
