IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
July 1, 1999
Mrs. Feinstein (for herself and Mrs. Boxer) submitted the following
resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
Designating the week beginning January 21, 2001, as ``Zinfandel Grape
Whereas Zinfandel grapes have historical significance among agricultural
products of the United States, in that the origins of Zinfandel grapes
in the United States date back to the 1830s;
Whereas Zinfandel grape vines are a living link to the time when gold was
discovered in the Sierra Nevada mountains and many people in the United
States moved west to seek their fortunes;
Whereas some Zinfandel grape vines in the Sierra Nevada foothills are at least
125 years old and still producing grapes;
Whereas Zinfandel grape vines were an integral part of the Gold Rush of 1849 and
the agricultural cultivation of the West;
Whereas Zinfandel wine is an excellent representative of the agricultural
community of the United States because its development and production
range from the hothouses and nurseries of New England and Long Island to
the hills and valleys of the Pacific Coast and Southwest;
Whereas Zinfandel grape vines are planted in 14 States and distributed to every
major community in all 50 States, and have worldwide recognition by
scholars, growers, and consumers as being a quintessential creation of
the United States;
Whereas Zinfandel grape products are used in products as diverse as jams, pasta
sauce, and wine;
Whereas the Zinfandel grape, a principal component of an important agricultural
sector in the United States, has been the leading red grape from the
1880s to the present in terms of acres planted and wine produced, and is
accordingly a crucial part of an industry that, in 1996, produced
approximately $41,000,000,000 of direct and indirect economic activity
and $3,000,000,000 in State and local revenue, and provided permanent
employment for 554,630 people;
Whereas Zinfandel wine has been winning first prize and similar recognition in
competitions since 1859 against domestic and internationally produced
wines, and brings great credit to the quality of agriculture in the
Whereas Zinfandel vines grown in the United States serve as the source of vines
grown elsewhere in the world and set the standards for Zinfandel vines
Whereas only Zinfandel wine, among the wines of the world, is recognized as
being a product that is uniquely from the United States;
Whereas the Zinfandel grape is an embodiment of the history and heritage of the
United States, and, in particular, of the settlement and agricultural
cultivation of the West; and
Whereas for the reasons described above, the Zinfandel grape is a national
treasure: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Senate--
(1) designates the week beginning January 21, 2001, as
``Zinfandel Grape Appreciation Week''; and
(2) requests the President to issue a proclamation calling
on the people of the United States to celebrate the week with
appropriate ceremonies and programs.
