Now that Bottlerock is over, classical music can step into the spotlight. This Saturday Violet Grgich and friends will perform "Sweeter than Roses: Songs and Instrumental Music by Purcell and his French Admirers" at 6 pm at the winery in St. Helena.

"Sweeter than Roses" is the name of one of the composer's most famous songs.

Aside from Purcell, the concert will also feature cantatas by Clerambeault and Bousset as well as viol da gamba suite by Marin Marais.

Les Violettes, Violet's group, consists of soprano Corey Carleton, viola da gamba player Colin Shipman, and Violet on the harpsichord.

Wine tasting is included for the admission fee of $25.
