In the mid 1990’s, ZAP and UC Davis partnered to create greater diversity for growers and winemakers to expand the quality of offerings of Zinfandel plants. The Zinfandel Heritage Vineyard Project has been a fruitful collaboration, and for many years membership at ZAP has included access to the exclusive Heritage Vineyard Zinfandel. These Zinfandels, not available in stores or wineries, have proved to be an exceptional way to showcase America’s heritage grape.

Selected wineries will contribute their favorite current vintage and ZAP will curate mixed packs to send to our loyal members at the ZinLover level and above. Shipments of wine will be sent each February. Committed wineries for the 2023 shipments are:
