Light catered fare will include bread and cheese selections to accompany the wines. Additionally, select New York area artisanal food companies including Ends Meat, Les Trois Petits Cochons, Li-Lac Chocolates, and The Luscious Little Dessert Company will be sampling their offerings and have full sized items on hand for guests to purchase and enjoy at home.

“Seeing how incredibly active and popular ZAP is on the west coast, presenting their annual Zinfandel Experience for the last 25 years, inspired us to reach out to them to connect top California winemakers with Zinfandel fans in the New York market for this very up close and personal boutique tasting, “ explains Sam Kimball, founder of New York Wine Events.
