Recently I spoke with Rebecca Robinson who is the Executive Director of ZAP which stands for Zinfandel Advocates and Producers a non-profit educational organization dedicated to the Zinfandel Grape. My Kind of organization.
They specialize in getting people educated and excited about Zinfandel by showing the unique history of the grape that made California.
Rebecca was especially excited to tell me all about the Zinfandel Experience, which I am sadly miss by one week.
The event is all about education, passion and drinking an abundance of Zins.
The All New 2014 ZINFANDEL EXPERIENCE
January 23 – 25
NEW LOCATION & FORMAT
The Presidio and Four Seasons Hotel, San Francisco
The schedule includes trade only tastings, winemaker dinners, pairing classes, tasting tracts and flights. All about Zinfandel, all and all not a bad way to spend a few days.
The winemaker dinner includes, Braised Oyster Mushroom Risotto and Slow Cooked NY Strip and Short Rib I am guessing paired with some amazing Zins.
