Sutter Home White Zinfandel
|Region||California, United States|
|Brand||Sutter Home Family Vineyards|
Our White Zinfandel is crafted from Zinfandel grapes selected from premier vineyards in California’s upper Sacramento and northern San Joaquin valleys, where the warm, sunny days and cooler nights produce grapes with juicy, fruity character and spice. To maximize the fresh, bright flavors of our White
Zinfandel, we harvest the grapes early in the growing season when sugar levels are low and acidity is relatively high.
Sutter Home White Zinfandel’s pale pink blush and touch of sweetness is a long way from Zinfandel’s dark color and spicy, peppery flavors. To create our White Zinfandel, Zinfandel grapes are immediately pressed after harvest to collect the rich, concentrated free-run juice. Winemakers then cold-ferment the juice at 60°F for ten days in stainless steel tanks, to enhance the wine’s fresh aromas, fruity flavors and crisp acidity.
Sutter Home White Zinfandel captures your attention with its beautiful, pale rose color and delicate aromas of sun-ripened berries. Sweet, creamy strawberry and melon flavors mingle with a whisper of vanilla on the palate. A crisp, refreshing finish adds balance to this delicious, lightly sweet wine, making it the perfect partner for a wide variety of foods.
When the Trinchero family bought the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel, introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United States.
But that was just the beginning. Sutter Home began producing Moscato long before it was “cool,” continuously staying one taste bud ahead of the consumer with new varietals such as Bubbly Pink Moscato and Red Moscato. And when “green” was just a color, Sutter Home introduced the wildly popular 187s in environmentally friendly, conveniently sized PET bottles.

Sutter Home continued to reach beyond the bottle by launching one of the first breast cancer awareness programs in 2001. Through the Sutter Home for Hope® program, the company has raised nearly $1 million dollars toward breast cancer awareness and research. Then in 1990, the Build a Better Burger® recipe contest was born, demystifying the wine experience by pairing America’s favorite everyday meal with its favorite wine brand—Sutter Home. And with an exciting $25,000 grand prize, it continues to bring together burger and wine enthusiasts every year.
With a fresh new label, Sutter Home continues to reflect the evolution of the brand and its consumers. With over 20 different varietals to choose from in the Sutter Home portfolio, there’s a wine to suit every mood and every palate. We can’t wait to taste what’s next.
