The History and Mystery of Zinfandel
by David Darlington

Zin, by David Darlington
published 2001
ISBN: 0306810298

Some people say this is one of the finest wine books ever written. Originally published in 1991 as "Angels Visits", the reprint has the addition of an 'epilogue' by Darlington to bring the book into the 21st century.

It's a wine book, with just one grape in mind - Zinfandel.

It's a history book. David Darlington traces the history of the grape.

It's a book about heritage. The heritage of a grape the Americans like to call their own.

And by all accounts, it is a darn good read - "an enthralling tale" writes one reviewer.

It's had rave reviews and it costs just US$12.80 from Amazon. Click here to read some of these reviews and to purchase this book. I'm waiting for mine to arrive.
