The guys at Veritas Wine Room continue to bring special tasting opportunities to their loyal patrons, and this week’s does not disappoint. I just got an email from Veritas about their free tasting tomorrow night, August 12, from 6pm – 8pm with well known California Zinfandel maven, Carol Shelton.
Carol Shelton has been a leading advocate for California Zin for years. In 1993 Bon Appetit named her winemaker of the year, and was a prominent member of the ZAP (Zinfandel Advocate Producers) Board of Directors from 1994-1998. In 200o she created Shelton-Mackenzie Wine Company with her husband, Mitch Mackenzie where they produce Carol Shelton Wines. Only 5000 cases of this award winning, highly rated Zinfandels. This is not a tasting to miss out on.
Four wines will be tasted including:
