International Zinfandel Day is upon us! We’ll be celebrating one of our favorite varietals a couple days early, on Saturday November 17th, as the following Wednesday we will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
The spicy Zinfandel has a storied history, and can be traced all the way back to Italy’s Primitivo and Crljenak Kastelanski, an ancient Croatian varietal. Though its roots are in the old world the grape has gained renown in California where Old Vine Zin, sometimes upwards of 15.5 % alcohol, has catapulted the Zinfandel to international stardom.
To celebrate International Zinfandel Day, our Primitivo will go on sale for one day only. Everyone will get case prices on the Primitivo, and if you snag a whole case of Primitivo, we’ll make it a bakers dozen for no extra charge. The Primitivo is sure to be a hit at Thanksgiving, pairing very well with chili, dark meat, and anything spicy.
Craig will also be sampling multiple Zinfandel’s that aren’t on the menu, ranging from Old Vine Zin to dusty, Puglian Primitivo from the boot of Italy. You’ll have to come on by to see what he’s sampling!
This event is open to the public.
The event will take place all day on Saturday, November 17th from 12pm to 8pm.
The event will be held at our public tasting room on California Street, at 12132 California Street, Yucaipa CA 92399.
See you for more than a little Zinfandel on the 17th!
