PRODUCER

Sutter Home

Sutter Home Family Vineyards is a historic estate that was purchased by the Trinchero family in 1948. In the early 1970s the estate was producing a sweeter wine it called White Zinfandel, creating a market for sweeter wines in the U.S. It also helped make Moscato popular in this country. Today the estate makes a broad portfolio of red, white, pink and sparkling wines. The estate is still run by the Trinchero family, and it is one of the largest wine producers in the nation by volume.

TYPE

Red Wine, Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a black-skinned grape, but 85% of the wine produced is made into a rosy “White Zinfandel.” Red Zin is far more complex and bold, while still being light-bodied. It grows in popularity as winemakers continue to experiment with new styles and blends.
