2018 Pre-ZinFest Blind Tasting: How Do Lodi Wines Compare to the Best In the World?​

 

On Friday, May 18, 2018 (2:00-4:00 PM), we are inviting 50 consumers (limited seating!) to sit down with Lodi wine industry professionals to a formal blind tasting of 16 wines, tasted in four “flights” of 4 wines each. This will take place in Wine & Roses Hotel Ballroom (2505 W. Turner Rd., Lodi, CA).
 
In each flight we will compare at least one Lodi grown wine with top quality wines from elsewhere in the world (specifically – France, Spain, New Zealand, and other California wine regions). The objective is not to determine what wines are the “best,” but rather, to examine, discuss, and learn about the sensory qualities that make each of these wines special.
 
The blind tasting proceedings will be led by 40-year wine industry professional and journalist (including lodiwine.com) Randy Caparoso, who will also moderate a panel of three wine industry professionals widely known for their exceptional wine tasting abilities. Like everyone else, these panelists will taste, and discuss, each wine completely blind, with no idea of their identities:
 

Jienna Basaldu - Wine Director of Sacramento’s Echo & Rig, and recent winner of the Court of Master Sommeliers André Tchelistcheff scholarship and 2017 San Francisco Luxicon blind tasting competition

Chad Joseph – Lodi based consulting winemaker (including the acclaimed Oak Farm Vineyards and Harney Lane Winery)

Jeff Morgan – Co-Proprietor of Covenant Winery (based in both Berkeley and Israel) as well as author of several wine and culinary books, former West Coast Editor of Wine Spectator, and founding instructor at Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies (Culinary Institute of America Napa Valley)

How do Lodi wines compare with the best from the rest of the world? Only one way to find out; which would be by signing up for this elucidating event through zinfest.com ($40 per person).Limited to 50 people.
