BURGERS + ZINFANDEL, NOW IT'S A PARTY!

by Jyll Jara, WSET II

Zinfandel. A historied CA grape, with a truly American name.  Old Zinfandel vines can date back to 100+ years, a big deal in American History considering that little “Prohibition-mishap”. While we are in the patriotic spirit, let us dutifully pair each of these red beauties with the all American hamburger. Okay, okay, so Zinfandel is most likely from Croatia, and hamburgers possibly originated in Germany. This is America, the land of opportunity, rebel winemaking, beautiful waves of immigrants, and endless imagination. Work with me people.
