This is one of the most asked and interesting questions, I must say!! I am feeling honored that I got the opportunity to clear the air for all! Now putting the joke aside and let me tell you something interesting about your question.
White Zinfandel is not a white wine at all. I repeat, it is not a white wine at all. It is, in fact, a rose!! Yes, you heard it right! That lovely pink color that is all over around you is a rose.
This wine is made with the “skin contact method.” This means the color of the skin of the grapes is left inside the juice just for the exact time to leave a hint of its color in the juice and not ultimately make it red. This process can take time from just two hours to up to twenty-two hours, depending on the variety and type of fruit in use.
