Join the tour with Joy Merrilees, Winemaker of Shannon Ridge, Owner Kim Stare Wallace of Dry Creek Vineyard, Emily Haines, Winemaker of Terra d’Oro, and veteran travel writer Lauren Mowery who will lead the lively tasting and discussion on the influence of women in the world of Zinfandel.*

California’s first settlers planted them. Succeeding generations spread them across California where they survived blight, World Wars and Prohibition. The ancient Dalmatian grape found a new ideal home on the frontier of the west coast of the United States.

Join your expert guide, Paul Rubio – travel maven and economist, for first hand deep dives into three of California’s iconic Zinfandel vineyards: Harney Lane Winery’s Lizzy James in Lodi, plus two others for an enlightening tasting and discussion about what makes these sites so special.*
