Feb 3, Zinfandel Wine Lecture!

Date: 3 February 2021 19:30 to 21:00

Good Day to you all,


This Wednesday, join us for a look at the Zinfandel grape as we pit Italy’s Primitivo against California’s Old Vine Zin form Lodi.


This is not your typical ‘sip society’ wine event. These events are more liken to cliff notes around the many facets of wine: soil; climate; history; culture; stories! Only through understanding can one’s appreciation deepen.


Our upcoming lecture will introduce the Zinfandel grape as we look at its old world origins. We will hop over the pond to America where we will discuss the journey of the Zinfandel variety through America’s history.
