I am thrilled to announce that Avalon Wine Tours has set up a special Wine and Music Weekend for my fans. It will take place in the Wine Country near Santa Barbara, California from Fri, August 23 – Sun, August 25, 2013. This is a perfect opportunity if you enjoy my music and good food and wine, and if you would like to learn a bit more about songwriting and wine. To skip the text here and learn more/reserve seats on the bus, visit:

Touring with Al Stewart (who is a noted oenophile) for some years, I have learned a little about wine, but am looking forward to learning more with Peter Smith. This adventure will take place in the region where the movie “Sideways” was shot (a beautiful part of the world) and Peter is a charming and knowledgeable guide to the world of wine. Please read what Avalon Wine Tours says below, or click on the link for full details. Don’t forget to make reservations by May 15 to get the Early Bird Discount prices listed below. See you in Santa Barbara!
“Ride along on the “band bus” for a weekend of music and wine with singer-songwriter Dave Nachmanoff! From Santa Barbara to the beautiful wine country of Santa Maria and Los Olivos, you’ll enjoy some of California’s top wines and no less than three concerts by Dave – each one uniquely different, covering the range of his wide musical talents. Plus, Dave will be holding a songwriting workshop along the way; if you haven’t yet experienced one of his fabulous classes, you won’t want to miss this!
You’ll also be in the company of one of the leading experts in wine travel, Peter Smith, who has been taking wine lovers to the world’s best vineyards for twenty years. A renowned consultant and wine writer, Peter has hosted collectors, movie stars and winemakers, with a trademark “anti-snob” approach that makes you the VIP wherever you go and lets you learn without pain as he “immerses” you in wine!
The concerts, workshops and VIP visits are all included in your tour price, along with two nights at the historic Santa Maria Inn, dinner included at one of Dave’s shows, and lunch included at two shows. All you’ll have to spend out of pocket is one dinner and some spending money for extra wine and souvenirs! In addition, you’ll go home with a special gift from Dave!”
