Zinfandel - not to be California’s historic wine


Arnold Schwarzenegger has vetoed the idea of making Zinfandel California’s ‘historic wine.’

He said that as California produces many wines from many different grape varietals, it would be “inappropriate” to single out just one for any special recognition.

“It would be a shame to recognize only one as California’s historic wine.”

The author of the idea, Senetor Migden, initially wanted Zinfandel to be the state’s official grape, but the idea was watered down after the state’s wine industry opposed the idea.

Migden is thinking of introducing another version of the measure. It could be put to a referendum where consumers could vote for what they think should be California’s historic or state wine.
