Most innovations happen with mistakes. When a winemaker experiences what is called "stuck fermentation", is a problem that occurs when the yeast dies out before consuming all of the sugars.
This "stuck fermentation" happened to a winemaker. Believing that his wine batch had gone bad, the winery set aside this problem batch. A few weeks later the winemaker tasted this "mistake" and was pleasantly surprised at the sweet flavor and its pink color, this accidental wine is White Zinfandel and become Sutter Homes Winery, number one seller in 1975. Today, Soaps Creams & Things, makes
California Zin Wine Soap from White Zinfandel wine.
