The Winterfest Jazz on the Vine is underway and the line-up for March at Castello di Borghese Winery is fabulous!  All concerts are complimentary and Borghese wine will be available for purchase by the glass.  Combine that with a weekend stay at the Arborview Bed and Breakfast and you have a winning combination!   
Two Steinway Series concerts were scheduled for Castello di Borghese Winery with the remaining Steinway Series concert scheduled for Saturday, March 13th at 4 P.M.  Ciemi Nakai is a native of Japan and is sure to dazzle.  She began classic training early and moved in the direction of Jazz, Afro-Cuban music and Salsa.  Next on the agenda is Linda Baker’s concert on Sunday, March 14th at 2 P.M. and this will be an afternoon of wonderful music.  Linda is a pianist who is no stranger to entertainment after working many of the New York City clubs.  She is known for show tunes, old standards, and sing-a-longs.  Eeac Masters Trio with Teddy Charles will be the last concert on Saturday, March 20th at 3 P.M.  Teddy Charles is an American jazz pianist, drummer, and vibraphone musician.  His versatility is demonstrated by the broad spectrum of musicians with whom he has worked with including Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, and Gunther Schuller.  He has also worked with rhythm and blues stars including Aretha Franklin, Chuck Willis, and Earl Bostic.   
What more can we say about the March concerts at Castello di Borghese, except join them!
