Ancient Oak Cellars sponsors inagural season of Santa Rosa Symphony at the Green Music Center

We’re pleased to share with you this recent newsletter from the Santa Rosa Symphony announcing our sponsorship of their inaugural year at the beautiful Green Music Center.  We invite you to join us at the “Roaring Celebration” Gala on Friday, October 5th, and also at concerts throughout the year.  Season subscriptions are still available.


Ancient Oak Cellars is not only the premier wine sponsor for “A Roaring Celebration” but is also the official brand being poured for the Symphony’s Private Reserve Club receptions during the 2012-2013 season. In addition to being business sponsors, vintners Melissa and Ken Moholt-Siebert have other connections to the SRS. They have recently entered into a partnership with Keven Brown, son of Conductor Emeritus Corrick Brown, to open a downtown tasting room in Corrick’s on Santa Rosa’s Fourth Street.

“Working with Keven makes sense on so many levels, personal and professional,” Melissa says. “We are both involved in multi-generation businesses. Ken’s grandfather, Henry Siebert, started our ranch and planted the vines. We honor his legacy and continue to develop the ranch from the hard work he put into it. We are very hands-on and do it all ourselves, along with winemaker Kent Barthman and a few full-time vineyard workers. Great wine is rooted in the land, and this area has always been ‘a place of the heart’ for our family.”

Both the Browns and the Moholt-Sieberts are deeply involved in the arts and committed to supporting them.

“Our daughter Lucy is in the ArtQuest program at Santa Rosa High School, where both Keven and Corrick attended and studied music,” Melissa continues. “Lucy is taught privately by Cory Antipa and at SR High by the amazing Mark Wardlaw; both are Symphony members. Our 16-year-old son Austin is an aspiring professional dancer. He has spent the last two years studying on scholarship with the Houston Ballet Academy and has just been asked to join the San Francisco Ballet School on full scholarship.

“Professionally, the collaboration with Corrick’s makes sense because it has such an amazing reputation and dedicated customers in the community, and is building a reputation for fine art with their ARTrails gallery. We hope to draw many regional and national tourists to Corrick’s, and to the fantastic restaurants and shops of downtown Santa Rosa as well.”

The Ancient Oak Cellars tasting room in Corrick’s is scheduled to open in late October. Both proprietors extend an invitation to Santa Rosa Symphony friends to attend the grand opening.
