This event is going to be a global 24-hour celebration taking place both virtually and in-person.
Use the #Zinfandel hash tag when posting on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Gowalla, blogs and all the other sites you hang out on. Search the hash tag on social sites to see what other wine drinkers a

So how do I take part in Zinfandel day?
Easy, just buy a bottle (or several) of Zinfandel. Invite over some friends, and enjoy great wine and company.
On the DAY (that’s right the event lasts a whole 24 hours) of the event, gather your bottle or bottles of Zinfandel, friends and enjoy. We have even set up a way for you to organize your own TweetUp, MeetUp, or whateverUp event http://www.meetup.com/Zinfandel
If you are social media inclined we recommend you participate and follow along by logging into your favorite social media site and use the #zinfandel hash tag when posting your comments about Zinfandel. You can then also search the hash tag on social sites to see what other wine drinkers are saying. If you are using Twitter we suggest using a Twitter management software (We love both HootSuite, and Tweetdeck but there are others) and set up a search column for #Zinfandel, which will be the hash tag you use to keep up with your fellow Zinfandel drinkers from around the globe.
Of course you can also join in via Facebook, Ustream or whatever other social media network you love.
Not social media inclined? Don’t worry the important thing is that you gather friends and enjoy some great wine after all what is wine if not shared?

The Association of Zinfandel Advocates & Producers (ZAP) was founded almost twenty years ago—back in the day—when Zinfandel was the underdog with a cause. A small group of passionate wine pioneers and Zinfandel-loving enthusiasts came together because they believed that Zinfandel deserved recognition as a highly respected varietal that could compete with the finest wines around the world. Today, ZAP comprises hundreds of producer members and thousands of advocates. Zinfandel has now come to be recognized and respected internationally as a world-class red wine that tells a wonderful American story.
This event is being organized by Christian Oggenfuss, DWS (vintuba.com) on behalf of ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates & Producers)
