Zinfandel Stories:

Springtime in Sacramento!


Get your Zin grin on at ZAP’s 2nd Annual Beatnik Studios Tasting

The Wine

Notable berry aromas with a spice core, combine with silken layers of multi-dimensional delight. This enticing enology encompasses integrated flavors and complexity—that’s Zinfandel!

The Space

The light-filled brick and steel building of Beatnik Studios set in the vibrant tree-lined downtown Sacramento neighborhood is the ideal backdrop to meet and chat with the winemakers. You’ll feel welcome the minute you step inside and hear the chatter and laughter from the surrounding conversations.

The Winemakers

The Zinfandel producers are as individualistic as the wine, and just as approachable. At ZAP, we love nothing more than bringing together wine lovers and wine makers. The wine always tastes better when you sample it with the winemaker and that’s what makes a ZAP tasting so special. They’ll pour their hearts out for you!

The Heritage Club

For a full-immersion afternoon of discovery, ZAP’s Heritage Club members are invited to enter early at 2:00 PM. Your surprise amenity gift will be waiting for you upon arrival.  Membership information.


Consider this from Wil Fulton at Thrillist

“Many Zinfandels have a cherry or strawberry-leaning juicy fruitiness. It’s lower in tannins, with a fuller, smoky body—making it easy to drink, while maintaining some complexity.  Best food to pair with it? The unique flavor profile of the wine makes it an ideal counterpart to pizza, cheese lasagna, and other foods with tart sauces and cheese.”  We couldn’t agree more, Wil! That’s why we’ve enlisted super-talented Pizza guru Scott Thorsen from Bella Familia to fire up the wood oven!


Bella Familia Pizza will serve wood-fired creations using their organic hand-made dough and local ingredients. It’s a perfect pairing!


What to Expect

  • A wine and food tasting featuring Zinfandel wines and blends
  • Beatnik Studios is a large, open space with tall windows, exposed brick walls, high ceilings and fun “bistro” lights. It has a creative, unique atmosphere that speaks to your heart
