- Other info: Sutter Home Winery is one of the largest, independent family-run wineries in the United States, and the estate known for the creation of White Zinfandel. It is located in Napa Valley, California. A fortunate accident occurred during the making of the 1975 vintage, as some 1,000 gallons of bleed-off juice from red Zinfandel refused to ferment to dryness, retaining a substantial amount of sugar, Trinchero put the wine aside for the time. He said, 'Two weeks later, I tasted that wine and it was sweet, had a pink color, and I thought, 'Darn, that's pretty good.' We bottled it, and the rest is history.'
