There is something unique and special about the combination of Wine and Jazz. It is the perfect pairing that takes you to a place of relaxation and enjoyment. Through the magazine, wine club and website, they bring this perfect lifestyle combination to you.

The concept of Wine of Jazz began with the goal of enhancing the Temecula Wine and Jazz music scene. The Temecula Wine and Jazz newsletter was first published in 2002 and mailed to residents, businesses and all Temecula wineries. This two-page newsletter included a review of a CD from one of the top contemporary jazz musicians who had performed at one of Temecula’s wineries, a review of a Temecula wine, a calendar of music events, and a wine themed quote. Response was overwhelmingly positive from fans, musicians and wineries alike. The newsletter’s name was changed to Wine and Jazz and a website was developed. The continued enthusiastic response led to the formation of the Wine and Jazz wine club in 2005. March 2009 marked the “premiere” issue of Wine and Jazz magazine as a unique national publication celebrating the perfect lifestyle combination.

Read about the pairing of Dee Brown’s “A Little Elbow Room” with wine from Adelaida Cellars (Paso Robles, CA) in the new issue of Wine and Jazz magazine. Available at all Barnes & Nobles, Borders, Copperfield’s Books, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Horizon Books, Davis Kidd Booksellers, or by contacting Wine and Jazz.

Victor Fields is a timeless song stylist. No matter what era of musical expression you discuss, one constant remains; Victor Fields would be a major player in the game. His voice is like silk dipped in butter and warmed by the sun.
