Let’s Celebrate National Zinfandel Day
Join Us in a Toast to National Zinfandel Day
Join us as we celebrate National Zinfandel Day (Nov 17) with Crush WineXP in a tasting with two (2) stellar California wineries, Once & Future Wine, and Limerick Lane Cellars. National Zinfandel Day reigns as a top national wine drinking holiday for anyone who loves red wine. At ZAP, our love for Zinfandel runs deep. Zinfandel is special because, like no other red wine, it speaks distinctively different wine languages from place to place. Zin adapts! Its flavors derive from its soil and surroundings—from light to rich, juicy to spicy, bright to bold, there’s a delicious Zin for every food choice and palate, be you a wine pro or beginner.

National Zinfandel Day is a worldwide celebration of the Zinfandel grape variety, intended to give Zinfandel lovers around the globe a platform to express their passion for grape and the wines made from it. How can you celebrate National Zinfandel Day?
Share a bottle with your friends.
“Invite your friends over for a toast to your best-loved varietal. Dazzle them with your knowledge by letting them know that Zinfandel wine is often described as fruit-forward with a flavor profile that can include raspberry, blackberry, boysenberry, cherry, black pepper, cloves, anise and/or herbs.”
Visit a tasting room or wine bar.
“More than 90% of Zinfandel is grown in California. However, wine produced from the grape is easily found throughout the United States. So, bop on down to your local drinkery to discover Zinfandel’s extraordinary quality and versatility.”
Explore Zinfandel’s food pairing abilities.
“When it comes to Zinfandel and food pairing, there are no rules. Zinfandel is made for pure pleasure, so drink what you like. Zinfandel, in all its diversity, is just as comfortable at an elegant dinner party as at casual family meals.”
By the way, Zinfandel is perfect for pairing with your Thanksgiving turkey because its lower tannin helps moisten even the driest turkey. More on Thanksgiving wines next week.
Visit a Zinfandel winery.
“Perhaps there is no better way to deepen your appreciation of Zinfandel than to see where it is grown and made. ZAP-member wineries are celebrating the day in their own special way, so be sure to check in with them before you go.” Plan a trip on The California Zinfandel Trail today!
