Celebrate the 4th of July with the “All American” Grape – Zinfandel; and these Dry Creek Events

Zinfandel is considered ‘the’ American varietal (grape),  and has been grown/drunk in the U.S. as far back as 1860.

Zinfandel is grown in many places, with a special focus in California. The styles can vary slightly depending where grown, but many consider Dry Creek Valley the heart of Zinfandel. Dry Creek’s warm weather, and variety of growing conditions, produces a range of wonderful wine.

Many wineries are celebrating this holiday and featuring this All American wine. Here are two (of many) special Zin events in Dry Creek to check out:

All American Zin Day

Saturday July 3, 11:00 – 4:00

A $20 logo glass is your ticket to a great time at five Dry Creek wineries, each serving award winning Zins paired with something tasty. Right when you come into Dry Creek, kick off at Amista, where  Baci Cafe will be serving up pizza from their new wood-fired oven – the perfect match with a 2006 Saini Farms Zin. Enjoy their winegarden and then head off to Wilson, Family, Rued and Mazzocco for more fun.
Don’t miss this Zin-tastic start to Independence Day weekend! Purchase your tickets here at the door.

Mounts Family Winery  Independence Day Celebration!

July 3rd & 4th 11:00 – 5:00

It will be a ZINtastic weekend with music, BBQ, and amazing Dry Creek Valley views atop their 140 acre estate.

Get your ZIN on and check out the  unveiling of two brand new single block designate Zinfandel’s; the 2008 Estate ‘La Loma’ Zinfandel, and the 2008 Estate ‘Cypress’ Zinfandel.
