Sommelier snobbery - why do 4 star restaurants refuse to list white zinfandel?

I am new to the ChowHound, and I rather felt, just stepping out as the "alienation" was thick when I mentioned "White Zin".

Appreciate all the replies.

I probably should have been more specific. This was a Superbowl party, shower clogs, tank tops, beer and nachos. I am not a beer drinker, so I'd prefer to bring the wine, but, there is always the chance, that I will have only 1 glass while the rest to those "with champagne tastes ..."

Wine Etiquette

Parties I attend are not of the dinner/wine match up variety. I always like to bring a bottle of wine for my host as a gift, but, I also would like to bring my own bottle, as I do not care for common red and white varieties.

I prefer Beringer White Zinfandel or Reggiano Lambrusco Le Grotte.

Is it acceptable to bring along another bottle for my own consumption and to share with my host.
