The Zinfandel grape is often considered California's red wine grape because it is not grown extensively in the rest of the world. Italy's Primitivo grape is actually the same variety under a different name. In California, Zinfandel wines are made in a variety of ways. Many sweet wine lovers are familiar with White Zinfandel (which is actually pink in color).
