You are invited to come down and celebrate Global Zinfandel Day this Friday. From 4pm we’ll have two sample bottles open to showcase this grape varietal.

One will be a Californian Zin from Cline Cellars and the other will be Canaletto Primitivo. It was long thought that Zinfandel was indigenous to California but genetic testing has proved that it is the same grape as Italian Primitivo that is grown mainly in the Puglia region (the heel of Italy).

In the spirit of a “Global” celebration, we invite you to compare wines from the two regions most associated with this varietal.
