Lodi Chronicles; Celebrate National Zinfandel Day With Lodi Zinfandel #ZinDay

As you may know if you follow this blog,  I’ve been contributing to Visit Lodi! Conference & Visitors Bureau blog.  Visit Lodi is the official travel website for Lodi, California.  From time to time I share the blog posts I’ve written for Visit Lodi here.  I recently wrote a piece for Visit Lodi entitled Celebrate National Zinfandel Day With Lodi Zinfandel 

The Zinfandel Advocates & Producers (a.k.a. ZAP) are the driving force behind the annual observation of National Zinfandel Day on Wednesday November 15th.  Not only do they host Zinfandel themed events that celebrate the grape in cities across the country throughout the year, they also directly contribute to research aimed at preserving old-vine heritage Zinfandel plantings throughout the state.

The virtual tasting will be presented LIVE on Lodi’s Facebook page with wine grower Kevin Phillips of Michael-David Vineyards, owner and winemaker Kyle Lerner of Harney Lane Winery and Stuart Spencer winemaker of St. Amant Winery and the program director of the Lodi Winegrape Commission.

We will be speaking about the state of old-vine Zinfandel in Lodi, what makes a vine old, and why old-vine Zinfandel is important to the history of Lodi wine region and California. We’ll be tasting and chatting about the wines pictured above.

It should be a fun and informative chat, and you know the Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel will be representing!
