Map & Directions
Visit with 80 different wineries and their winemakers and discover your own harmony of taste. Explore a range of food flavor elements and enhance your appreciation of the versatility of Zinfandel at this accessible and friendly walk-around tasting. Just as a single melody paired with another becomes a song, wine paired with food becomes a concert of taste, more than each note by itself. Uncover your own sensory composition as you sample your favorite Zins.

We believe that people who enjoy Zinfandel are a distinctive lot— adventurous, spirited, and discerning individuals who enjoy playful exploration of palette pleasing pleasures. If this sounds like you, then the Sensory Tasting is right up your alley. Six Flavor Stations hold a magic key to unlocking Zinfandel’s range of flavor in contrasting and complimentary ways. As you make your way through your choices of over 200 Zinfandels, visit the Flavor Stations to taste and learn how foods with Savory, Sweet, Spicy, Sour, and Umami components make that Zinfandel sing. There’s even a Play Station (not the video game variety) for those real daredevils.
