Wine Wednesday: Zinfandel and Primitivo

Wine Wednesday.  Our favorite day of the week.  And one of our favorite wines for Wine Wednesday (or any day for that matter) is Zinfandel.  No offense to those that like White Zinfandel. . . but we are talking about red.  A big, robust red wine!!!

In researching California Zinfandel (and its Italian twin cousin, Primitivo), I stumbled upon a great blog simply called ” Zinfandel and Primitivo” by The WineCollective.  I love their tag line:  “If you can’t drink at work, at least you can read about it!”  My sentiments exactly!!

Zinfandel and Primitivo | The WineCollective Blog.

The WineCollective was established in 2009 in Canada whose mission is:

There are thousands of wines available in the Canadian market from around the world on any given day. How do you choose what to try next? We were tired of rolling the dice at the liquor store. WineCollective does all the hard work for you. We try hundreds of wines each and every month, ranging from the weekday pizza wine to the exotic cellar candidate. It may sound like fun to try all that wine (which it is), but it’s serious work. We pick the best wines for our wine club members.

Instead of reinventing the wheel, we thought we would share their extremely informative history of this big and bold wine.
