For years, Zinfandel was "America’s grape". It was variety with a shady, mysterious past that had nevertheless adapted so well to its adopted country it had taken on a personality all its own.

Cuttings labeled "zinfandel" were first sold in California in the 1850s. It was widely planted as a prolific, hardy vine that made inky, dark wines. It was often used as a blending wine and nobody gave it a second thought.

Until 1973 when a fortuitous accident resulted in the discovery of "White Zinfandel" which literally saved thousands of acres of old-vine zinfandel from being ripped out.

It wasn’t long before winemakers "rediscovered" Zinfandel’s potential to make great red wines that the red version gained in popularity.

Fast forward to 1994, DNA fingerprinting shows that Zinfandel is an identical match to the Italian Primitivo grape. Fast forward again to 2006 when you start seeing Zinfandel from Italy! This hasn’t made CA producers happy; stay tuned for further developments and in the meantime enjoy the real thing here with Twisted Zin!
