Summary

Grape

Zinfandel

This grape’s genetic roots can be traced to modern-day Croatia, where it's known as Crljenak or Tribidrag; both Zinfandel and the southern Italian grape Primitivo are clones of this Croatian variety. Despite its international origins, Zinfandel is most widely planted and most successful in California. Americans may associate the grape with white Zinfandel, an off-dry blush wine popular in the 1980s and '90s, but it has since come into its own as a serious red wine.
