Among the inductees at this year’s Vintner’s Hall of Fame ceremony in Napa, is Bob Trinchero, who invented White Zinfandel back in 1972 while a winemaker at Sutter Home. We’re sure Trinchero will get some friendly, fraternal goading about this when he’s honored at the CIA Greystone event on February 21, at which they’ll also be pouring wines from 25 years of White House dinner menus. Get tickets here. [Gray Market Report]
