Giarrusso Zinfandel celebrates the story of John Giarrusso and the many like him who founded an American wine tradition, specializing in top quality Zinfandel. John Giarrusso came to the United States in 1910 from Sicily. As most Italian families his father grew grapes on their property and made wine for family consumption. It was a family affair and everybody participated in the "crushing" of the grapes. Zinfandel was the grape they discovered in California that resembled Primitivo that they were fond of at home. Family tradition continues as John Giarrusso's grandson produces this luscious Zinfandel from an 8 acre vineyard block in the Dry Creek Valley.
