If you are like most of my Temecula friends, the key element to the appeal of any Happy Hour is a great price offered on the drinks. Everything else is a bonus! Monte de Oro Winery offers a Friday night Happy Hour that covers the key element–a $4 glass of their award-winning wine. After that, the bonuses come one after another! The setting leaves nothing to be desired; The summer sun setting on a glorious day illuminating a lush vineyard. You recline in the comfortable shadows cast by one of Temecula’s finest architectural showpieces. Well done, Monte de Oro.
Last Friday night, Monte de Oro called to the stage Temecula’s most beloved young duo, The Brewer Boys. These two charming young performers bring an eclectic mix of musical genre overlayed with bluegrass tones and spot-on harmony. Justin, 17 and Nathan, 14 attribute their love for bluegrass music to their father. “Our dad is from Wyoming”, says Justin,” He’s been sharing this stuff with us our whole lives”. As the evening sun set last Friday, the Brewer Boys along with their backup musicians rang out their own renditions of The Eagles’ Peaceful Easy Feeling, Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire, and Coldplay’s Clocks. The delighted crowd enjoyed the Bistro’s appetizers presented by an attentive wait staff. A Spinach Artichoke Dip ($6) or the Hummus with Pita ($6) was a favorable compliment to the fine wine and the musical ambience.
