(SOLD OUT) Tasting Seminar – Extremely Rare and Coveted 

Napa Valley has been growing Zinfandel grapes since around 1851, but only a small percentage of grapes now grown in Napa Valley are Zinfandel. Yet, passionate Napa Valley growers and winemakers have made a commitment to this cherished grape, sourced to a significant extent from vines planted long before Prohibition, which are in their own way historic landmarks, as well as portals into California’s agrarian past. Today, Zinfandel wines are produced that rival the very best of Napa Valley—bar none. During the conversation, these renowned Zinfandel specialists will prove that Napa Valley produces some of the most terroir-driven, nuanced and balanced wines California wine country has to offer.
