From 1-2 there was a panel of three Zin experts, moderated by Wine Spectator editor Tim Fish, followed by a large tasting with more than 100 participating wineries.
Here's the event in pictures, featuring the organic and Biodynamic growers and vintners among the crowd:
|There was no cheese or snacks but one could order |
takeout from a little place next to the dome and
tasting room. Here a worker tries to explain to a customer what the fried pickles taste like.
|The place has a rare vantage point with amazing views - where else can you|
take in both the Oakland cranes (that inspired their lookalikes in Star Wars)
and the cityscape from the water...
|The tasting and panel discussion took place in the outdoor dome space at Rock Wall. (Did the winery bring this in for the event? Or is it a permanent fixture?)|
