Zintopia at last...
|I have been to more wine events than you can possibly imagine. I've poured, I've sipped, I've swirled, and I've survived standing on my feet for countless hours all in the name of spreading the gospel about our wines. Truthfully, there are few tastings that really get me all that jazzed anymore. But there's a new tasting event here in the Dry Creek Valley that is worth spreading the word about. Put on by Winegrowers of Dry Creek Valley, it's called Zintopia and it's fast approaching on Saturday, September 19. Over 30 wineries have agreed to pour their limited release Zinfandels and Sauvignon Blancs along with other uncommon red and white varieties. An outdoor marketplace with local artisans and edible delights will satisfy the gastronomics out there. An old fashioned grape stomp and harvest celebration is also planned. So, if you're looking for an excuse to get out of dodge, this just might be it. It sounds like Zintopia to me! Besides, anytime there's a blues band playing is sure to be a good time, right? If you decide to come, be sure to stop by my table. I'll be the one with the red hair flyin', the toes tappin', and the hips swayin' .|
This is a blog about what it's really like to be in the wine industry...so sit back, take a sip and enjoy!
