Miramonte Resort & Spa introduces “Sassy and Sultry,” a weekly happy hour event showcasing select wines and smooth sounds with “songbird” Gina Carey, happening every Thursday from 5 to 8 pm in the resort’s Vineyard Lounge.
“Sassy and Sultry” highlights a different winery each month with flights of wine from the featured winemaker. On occasion representatives from the winery will be present offering a more personalized experience of the wines to be enjoyed. In addition to a vast selection of fine wines and champagnes, The Vineyard Lounge also offers a full menu of specialty drinks and made-to-order cocktails.
Paired with the smooth wines will be the hot sounds of recording artist Gina Carey bringing her warm, angelic, soulful voice to create the foundation of the “Sassy and Sultry” weekly program. Gina’s versatility shows in her ability to move within genres from rock, pop, soul and R&B. Gina has written and recorded three independently released gospel CDs and five soulful albums. Gina’s 2011 CD entitled Melodic was entirely written, arranged and mixed by Gina and produced by her multi-talented husband and recording artist, John Carey. John, urban soul guitarist, is also featured on this album as the lead guitarist. On August 24, 2011, Melodic soared to the #1 Spot on the UK Top 30 Soul Charts & on December 8, 2011 Melodic was named one of the Top Albums of the year 2011. Gina’s most recent recording, Gina Carey…The Songbird, was just released at the end of January 2013.
The lushly landscaped grounds, bougainvillea-draped, Mediterranean atmosphere of Miramonte Resort & Spa provide a perfect setting for the event. The outdoor patio of The Vineyard Lounge is situated below the Santa Rosa Mountain backdrop and graced with hues from blue to orange and violet at sunset.
