I'm a fan of Mary Chapin Carpenter, and I loved hearing her sing old
and new songs. She has a wonderful presence on stage as did
Shawn Colvin. I find some of her songs quite inspiring.
While the venue was spectacular, it got quite chilly, and...continued

I really enjoyed her show. I agreed with the previous reviewer about everything. She and her band were great. The sound is really good. It was chilly and the parking is super expensive as is the wine. The venue is outstanding though.

Mountain Winery was the perfect venue for these two women who have such beautiful, melodic voices. The acoustics were wonderful and the wine was excellent.

As others have said, it gets REALLY cold there so bring warm jackets and blankets. Both performers were excellent, setting is excellent as well. $20 to park is excessive. Didn't buy food/drink. I remember when the wine was free!

First time I was at Mountain Winery; a beautiful site but ridiculous prices for wine and parking!!! Music was good - not breathtaking but enjoyable.

The Mountain Winery is WONDERFUL, our seats were nice, both acts sounded great but we left early because Mary Chapin Carpenter would not stop going on about her political views. Regardless of your political affiliation, concerts are about the...continued

Great concert... beautiful venue. Was a bit cold, but this is normal for the Mountain Winery... and this is an unusually cold summer. Always bring a blanket, and warm jacket. Expensive parking and drinks... but it is easy to bring your own...continued

This was just what I expected from these 2 singer/songwriters. Mellow, familiar, and poetic.
Goldstar seating was good, but willcall window wouldn't let me upgrade.

Amazing acoustics, spectacular views, heartwarming performances on a frosty night. (52 degrees in August!) $20 to park is highway robbery.

Love these two musicians but I found the concert a little sleepy. It picked up after I left at near 10 p.m. (I heard it as I was exiting). I had hoped MCC would pick it up a bit earlier on. Parking was pricey as was food and a tiny $4 gelato. ...continued

Such a great venue and love the remodel as there are really no BAD seats. Great concert but agree that parking at $20 and wine adds a lot to the concert costs.
