California Zinfandels

Wednesday, March 27th

Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar




Today we’re tasting a grape I’ve long thought of as America’s grape.


The grape originally came from Croatia, perhaps via Southern Italy where it is still known as Primitivo.  But until recent DNA testing which uncovered this history no one knew where Zinfandel came from and it has been growing all over California for well over a hundred and fifty years, so many of us just came to think of it as our grape.


The name may have originated in Austria though no one’s sure.  At any rate Zinfandel, like our country has many European roots


The grape produces big fruity wines that will warm your heart, mind and belly.


Price is $20.  Please call or see the front desk to place reservations.  802 253-5742.  Doors open @ 4:00.  I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed.  People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
