Family-owned since 1973, Zaca Mesa Winery & Vineyards is dedicated to producing Rhone varietals showcasing the distinct characteristics of their estate vineyards. For nearly 50 years, they made wine out of the same barn that founded the estate, celebrating generation after generation of acclaimed wines. The estate is dedicated to sustainable winegrowing practices and Winemaker Kristin Bryden believes the greatest wines are made in the vineyard with minimal intervention. Her philosophy is simple: Let the grapes tell their story.
Just off Foxen Canyon Road and nestled in the hills of the Santa Ynez Valley, Zaca Mesa invites you to enjoy a tasting on their outdoor courtyard where you will find picnic tables, oak trees, and a life-size chess board. You may also taste their reserve wines, as well as a selection of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from their TREAD Wines portfolio, at their beautiful new Club Lounge & Terrace. Bring a picnic and invite your friends and family to relax among the vines and oak trees of this beloved family estate. The estate is also available for weddings and private events year round. Come celebrate life with good friends and good wines in a great setting.
