Zinfandel on the World Stage
Zinfandel was once considered an American grape, but we now know both it and Italy’s Primitivo are clones of the Croatian variety Crljenak Kaštelanski. WSET’s masterclass will trace Zinfandel from its European roots to its established position on the world stage. We’ll also tell you how to pronounce the Croatian name!
