With a series of online events catered to your tasting experience, ZIN EX goes LIVE ONLINE on January 30 & 31, featuring more than three dozen outstanding California wineries. Registration is OPEN NOW which is offered FREE to the general public. In particular be sure to join my 2Meet The Maker panels on Saturday Jan 30, of the 10 toal moderated sessions on both days between 1-4pm, featuring winemakers or winery principals, among the multiple memorable excursions:
Dry Creek Valley Legendary Zinfandel Vineyards – 2:15pm
Napa Valley Legendary Zinfandel Vineyards – 2:45pm
Attendees will be able to watch the Legendary Zinfandel Vineyards panel discussions via live stream on the Main Stage, they can ask questions via real-time chat, visit Virtual Booths to speak directly with key winery personnel. Participating wineries will offer special promotions before, during, and after the event with wine details. Guests can purchase the wine in advance to taste along or go shopping post-event.
It was my pleasure to taste and muse about the fabulous flavors from a memorable visit up north: My Mendocino trek also involved a few conversations that are documented on The Varietal Show, from my YouTube channel; including Chef Mark Dym of Little River Inn; Steve Alden spinning the tale of Murder Ridge; and this extra little repost below from my visit with Lorenzo Pacini at the famous Pacini Vineyard! Enjoy and FOLLOW my channel for more exciting episodes to come . . .
Where’s Waldo? Find the visitor flying around in one of these three videos. Name that bird! #GoMendo
During my Zinfandel Experience this year I ran into The Cork Dorks: This team consists of Adam Montiel and Jeremy West, part of a weekly program on The Krush 92.5. Take a little break to listen and watch this recounting of their ZAP adventure! (And yes, you will hear my voice in spots there as well. . .)
