A bottle of White Zinfandel from E & J Gallo Winery

White Zinfandel is an off dry to sweet rosé wine which was invented by Sutter Home Family Vineyards winemaker Bob Trinchero in 1975.[1] Originally the result of a stuck fermentation and fortuitous accident,[1] White Zinfandel is made from the Zinfandel wine grape, which would otherwise produce a bold and spicy red wine. In 2018, Sutter Home White Zinfandel is represented with 29.1 percent dollar share of the $300 million White Zinfandel market and 73.1 percent of the 187 mL White Zinfandel market.[2]
