If you love Zinfandel wine, here is your chance to taste oodles of Zinfandel wines all in the same place. The 21st Annual Zinfandel Festival takes place January 26 to 28, 2012, at the Concourse in San Francisco. We are giving away a pair of tickets to two of the Zinfandel Festival events. We have two tickets for the Epicuria Food & Zin Pairings event on Thursday, January 26, from 6 to 9 pm and two tickets to the ZAP Grand Tasting on Saturday, January 28, from 2 to 5 pm.
At the Epicuria Food & Zin Tasting, you will get a chance to mingle with winemakers and chefs as they pair their Zinfandel wines with epicurean delights. At the Grand tasting on Saturday, 400 different wineries will be pouring their Zinfandel wines. What a bonanza for the bargain wine hunter to seek out and compare Zinfandel wines by winery, region, and price. By the way, use the spit cups provided at the tasting to make sure you are completely able to judge the wines by the end of the day. Complete information on the entire 21st Zinfandel Festival can be found on the ZAP Website.
How to enter
We are going to make it as easy as possible to enter. You must do two things. First, subscribe to our blog feed by entering your email address in the Subscribe Box on the right column on GoodCheapVino.com. If you are currently subscribed, you are good to go with the contest. To complete your entry, tell us what your favorite Zinfandel wine is. Use the comment section at the bottom of this post. Example: I love the Buehler 2010 Napa Valley Zinfandel.
The contest is open from now until Sunday, January 15th. On Monday the 16th, I will enter each entrant’s name in my hat and have a colleague randomly choose the two winners. First place gets to pick either event. Second place gets whichever event is left. How easy is that?
