A virtual wine tasting featuring the best in Zinfandel. We ZOOM because it works great!
Zinfandel is California’s grape varietal and these top producers are set to take it to the next level. At LearnAboutWine we gather six noted producers and send out tasting kits so you can taste along with the winemakers as they describe and discuss, and you are part of the conversation. This is not a static program where you watch passively - we want you to participate, ask questions and comment. Zinfandel needs a few heroes and these are worthy wines - leaders in the marketplace and brands you should not only know but support. If you like Zinfandel, this should absolutely be of interest!
