For most of us, when we think of Zinfandel, we think of California, and rightly so – California has more Zinfandel under vine than the rest of the world combined. However, it may surprise you to learn that at one time, there was more Zinfandel planted in Croatia than in anywhere else in the world.
In this weeks tasting at Gambardella’s Pasta Bella, I’ll be talking about how the Zinfandel grape got from Yugoslavia to America, why Zinfandel isn’t really California’s grape, why the grape has all but disappeared from it’s homeland, and why Zinfandel is so important to California’s wine-making history. I will also be sharing some fantastic examples of Zinfandel with you, including some old-vine gems that I think you’ll love. As always, Gambardella’s will be providing a fantastic selection of appetizers for you to enjoy while tasting.
Clear your calendar and your palate, it’s going to be a great time!
