Oh, sorry: had to put my hands down to keep typing.
We’re excited to announce a ticket give away for the upcoming ZAP Zinfandel Festival (January 27-29, 2011). We have a pair of tix to the Thursday Night Good Eats & Zin Pairing event, and two pairs of tix for the Saturday Grand Tasting. Here’s a run down of the events:
THURSDAY GOOD EATS & ZIN PAIRING EVENT: Zin-focused wineries pair up with restaurants and food purveyors to offer a spectacular evening of gluttonous fun. Thermidor, A-16, Town Hall will be there serving up the grub, and wine legends like Ridge and Grgich Hills will be pouring the juice along with talented new comers like Bedrock Wine–and that’s just to name a few. Check out the full line up here. Tix usually go for $100 a piece. January 27, 2011 from 6pm – 9pm at Fort Mason
SATURDAY GRAND TASTING: Year in, year out, this is one of the best attended wine events in the city, bringing together close to 200 wineries that bottle up Cali’s signature varietal. I’m particularly excited that Bedrock, Brown Estate, Carlisle, Ridge, Turley, and Valdez will all be in the house. Tix usually go for $70 a piece. More info here. January 29, 2011 from 2pm-5pm at Fort Mason.
