We are implementing additional ticketing options for the Summer Concert Series through Ticketmaster’s Official Platinum Seats. Official Platinum Seats are premium tickets to concerts made available by artists and event organizers. Ticketmaster's Official Platinum seat program enables market-based pricing (adjusting prices according to supply and demand) for live event tickets, similar to how airline tickets and hotel rooms are sold. The goal is to give fans fair and safe access to the best tickets, while enabling artists and other people involved in staging live events to price tickets closer to their true market value. 

Ticketmaster service fees vary depending on the type of purchase you choose—online, phone, mail order, etc. If purchasing day of show at the winery, the service fee is $6.00. 

Tickets are non-refundable except in the event of a concert cancellation, in which case tickets are refundable at the original point of purchase. Please contact Ticketmaster directly for lost tickets purchased from Ticketmaster.
