And this year at our ZINO Zillionaire Investment Forum, we were honored to have three stellar wineries and even a brewery pour last Thursday during our Awards & Wine Reception. These winemakers and brewers are awesome, taking a break out of the craziness of harvest to join us at the Four Seasons.
Yvonne Swanberg of San Juan Vineyards (photo 1) traveled from Roche Harbor to Elliott Bay to pour for us. Her chardonnay was cool and refreshing and was my first glass of wine of the day and the perfect way to kick off the wine reception after a day packed with presentations.
We were thrilled that our newest Wine Professional Member, Doug Petersen of Edmonds Winery, chose ZZIF to show off his lovely handcrafted wines. If you attended ZZIF, I hope you made it to his table to taste!
Jeff Sully (photo 4), winemaker of 428 Wines, drove all the way from Walla Walla just for us. This was his second year pouring at ZZIF, and we are glad he came back to continue the tradition!
And yes, for the first time in ZZIF history, our “Wine Reception” included brews by The Pike Brewing Company, owned by Charles and Rose Ann Finkel (photo 3). It was obvious I was not the only one excited about this new beverage option, and I know that The Pike Brewing Co. and ZINO Society are going to be very happy together...
So thank you Charles, Rose Ann, Jeff, Doug, and Yvonne for helping to make our 2009 ZZIF Wine (and Brew) Reception such a success!
