People have always traveled in search of a better life, often taking with them only their nearest and dearest and their most valuable possesions. Kaštelanski Crljenak is an old, almost forgotten Croatian wine, which has recently captured the attention of the domestic and foreign wine-making public. More particularly, it was established that Kaštelanski Crljenak and the American wine Zinfandel are in fact the same wine, which helped solve the mystery of its origin.

This wine, well-known as Zinfandel, was brought from the Imperial State Nursery of Vienna to Long Island in the United States in the early 19th century, where it became highly valued. After arriving in California, it spread rapidly, especially during the so-called Gold Rush, and later became the most widespread wine in America. Enjoy this interesting story fi rst-hand.
