LITV has become one of the country’s most successful “private” music, food, and wine festivals. It takes place in the heart of scenic Napa Valley and has featured over 400 A-list artists, vintners, and chefs since we held our first event in 2008. LITV is also featured on 350+ radio station and TV outlets through partnerships with iHeart Media, Entercom, Townsquare Media, Cumulus Broadcasting, Ryan Seacrest, along with multiple concert specials yearly on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio.
Working closely with Southwest Airlines, there is now a co-branded Boeing 737 in their flying fleet with the “Live In The Vineyard” logo on the airplane to support the highly-successful “Live at 35” concerts that take place in the air. LITV has also produced national music and food events for Microsoft, Aloft, Anheuser-Busch, Sutter Home, Marriott, and more.
Live In The Vineyard is a part of the LITV Entertainment Group, an experiential event company providing brand experiences in a truly immersive, multi-sensorial environment.
“I’ve been to many live music events in my lifetime, but “Live In The Vineyard” stands out as an unforgettable one. If you happen to love music, wine and food as much as I do, there’s hardly a better event to be embraced by all three in ways that are relaxing and transcendent.” ~ Robert Parker, Wine Journal
