California Zinfanel is a very food friendly wine… mixes and matches welll with so many dishes and styles.
The arrival of Zinfandel in the United States may have been via the Imperial Nursery in Vienna, Austria, which likely obtained the vines during the Habsburg Monarchy‘s rule over Croatia, which was expanded when Austria acquired the Dalmatian territories of the former Republic of Venice in 1797.
