Zinfandel's ancestry can be traced back to Croatia, where it is called Crljenak Kastelanski; and Italy, where it is known as Primitivo. In America, Zinfandel got its name from a Boston nursery owner who advertised it for sale in 1832. Zinfandel was later introduced to California during the 1850s Gold Rush and became widely planted because it thrived in the state’s climate and soil.
