Some brief overview of this book

The Zinfandel grape—currently producing big, rich, luscious styles of red wine—has a large, loyal, even fanatical following in California and around the world. The grape, grown predominantly in California, has acquired an almost mythic status—in part because of the caliber of its wines and its remarkable versatility, and in part because of the mystery surrounding its origins. Charles Sullivan, a leading expert on the history of California wine, has at last written the definitive history of Zinfandel. Here he brings together his deep knowledge of wine with the results of his extensive research on the grape in the United States and Europe in a book that will entertain and enlighten wine aficionados and casual enthusiasts.

In this lively book, Sullivan dispels the false legend that has obscured Zinfandels history for almost a century, reveals the latest scientific findings about the grapes European roots, shares his thoughts on the quality of the wines now being produced, and looks to the future of this remarkable grape.

Sullivan reconstructs Zinfandels journey through history—taking us from Austria to the East Coast of the U.S. in the 1820s, to Gold Rush California, and through the early days of the states wine industry. He considers the ups and downs of the grapes popularity, including its most recent and, according to Sullivan, most brilliant up. He also unravels the two great mysteries surrounding Zinfandel: the myth of Agoston Haraszthys role in importing Zinfandel, and the heated controversy over the relationship between California Zinfandel and Italian Primitivo. Sullivan ends with his assessments of the 2001 and 2002 vintages, firmly setting the history of Zinfandel into the chronicles of grape history.

A few words about book author

Twenty-five years ago Leon Adams, the dean of California wine writers, named Charles L. Sullivan the modern historian of wine in California. Among Sullivans books are A Companion to California Wine: An Encyclopedia of Wine and Winemaking from the Mission Period to the Present (California, 1998) and Napa Wine: A History from Mission Days to the Present (1994).
