The 2018 concerts include: Chris Isaak on Saturday, June 23rd; a special performance by Sheryl Crow on Friday, July 20th for members of Mission Hill’s Privilege Wine Club; multiple Grammy Award-winning American jazz instrumentalist Chris Botti on Wednesday, August 8th; and The Gipsy Kingsfeaturing Nicolas Reyes and Tonino Baliardo on Saturday, August 11th.

In addition to the musical performances, Mission Hill is also offering a range of Experiential Packages including several new 4-course dinner options and Concert + Reception experiences. These events are once again expected to sell out quickly, as the Mission Hill Amphitheatre concerts have become a hallmark of summer in the Okanagan Valley.

With the creation of the Amphitheatre, Proprietor Anthony von Mandl, O.C., O.B.C., a strong proponent of the arts, created a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy a spectacular evening of music, wine and cuisine at one of Canada’s premiere outdoor concert venues.

“A performance under the open sky at our outdoor Amphitheatre is a truly unforgettable experience,” states von Mandl. “There is something extraordinarily special about this intimate hilltop location. We are thrilled to welcome these exceptional musical performers to the winery this summer.”

For artists who command much larger venues the small capacity Amphitheatre provides a rare treat for those eager to engage with their fans on a more intimate level. Brilliant sound, glorious music, the taste of Mission Hill wines and the flavour of the food, combine to make the evening unforgettable.
