History underscores Zinfandel's new tack

March 04, 2013

Meanwhile, Zinfandel's - hence Tribidrag's - history kept stretching back in time, enough so that Tribidrag was used as Zinfandel's official name in wine authority Jancis Robinson's new book, "Wine Grapes." Historian Ambroz Tudor uncovered references as far back as the early 1400s; Tribidrag wine was traded with Venice across the Adriatic - significant enough to be referenced by name.
