Become a Zinfandel Jedi Master!

There’s more to Zinfandel than you expect. In this deep and all-encompassing class, we’ll explore many facets of Zinfandel that make it one of the great grapes of the world (though 99.9% of it is grown in California).

We’ll start with the history of the grape and the mystery (and discovery) of its origins. This is one of the great tales in the world of wine, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Then we’ll move into Zinfandel terroir, including why ‘old vine’ matters, where it grows best, and why there are pockets of Zinfandel concentration to be found in parts of California.

From there we’ll move into the top regions and producers, going step-by-step through the subzones and best winemakers to help you get more Zinfandel bang for the buck.

No wines are required to taste along with the class, but it sure makes it more fun. You’ll get specific suggestions on wines upon purchase of the workshop.

The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating. Which of course makes it much more fun.

We hope you can join us forĀ The Zinfandel Masterclass!
