Wine Trivia du Jour

Did you know that Zinfandel and Primitivo are the same variety? True! A few years back it was discovered that they have the same DNA (Your tax $ at work ;-). As with any variety, there may be clonal differences. Zinfandel was the most popular variety in California before prohibition and is the #3 grape today! Primitivo is beginning to travel these days, but is found primarily in Puglia (the heel of Italy’s boot.) Cheers!
