  • Great wine, nice tasting room with reasonable price. Remember the days wine tasting was free? Those days are long gone, depending on winery price varies between $10 and $20.
  • Great atmosphere, average wine, and smug staff. The wine Rideau made from their grapes was incredible, so Zaca must be doing something right.
  • Good wine.. and even better candles for sale
  • 5 ***** to the lady pouring for her excellent customer services, I think her name is Kathy. Tasting room is small, picnic tables outside beside the tasting room, so your allowed to bring a picnic basket totally cool. I am a fan of their Syrah, and they just release a 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon for their very first time, nice. I am wine club member.
  • My wife and I visited the Zaca Mesa tasting room after we missed the turnoff for another Winery and we couldn't be happier about our blunder. Even though they were absolutely packed, the staff was still extremely friendly and provided great service. There wasn't a miss in the 6 wines in our flight and the Eight Barrel Syrah that fished it off was absolutely fabulous (we bought a bottle). They are on the short list of candidates for our very selective stable of club memberships. Best wrong turn ever!
