“We created Huichica because we believe that music and wine is best shared in intimate and epic settings with our community, family (and) friends,” Bundschu said in a statement.

The festival was not held in 2020 due to coronavirus concerns.

“After a couple of tough years for live events and the music industry, it means the world to us to present this fun and diverse music experience at the oldest family-owned winery in California — it’s always one of my favorite music and family weekends of the year,” said Britt Govea, founder of FolkYEAH Presents, in a press release.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase from the winery and local food purveyors.

The Huichica Music Festival will comply with any laws and mandates recommended by the county and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
