ZD Wines: 50 Reasons to Celebrate
The deLeuze family of ZD Wines has the distinction of celebrating 50 years of winemaking this fall. Founded in 1969, the winery is located in Rutherford, a premium Cabernet Sauvignon growing region in the heart of Napa Valley. To commemorate this occasion, the team at ZD Wines is pulling out all of the stops to make sure guests can join in on the excitement.
No celebration would be complete without bubbles. This fall, ZD is thrilled to release its first-ever 50th Anniversary Sparkling Cuvée and will debut a newly designed label. This stunning wine was crafted with 100% Chardonnay grapes from the organic ZD Wines Carneros Estate vineyard, and is an elegant, balanced Blancs de Blancs that is as vibrant as it is effervescent. Only 475 cases were produced. Guests may pre-order this limited-edition wine before it sells out at zdwines.com.
Renovated Hospitality Center
Visiting ZD Wines is a top-notch Napa Valley experience. ZD’s world-class wines, hospitable staff, and amazing views are among the best in the valley. As ZD celebrates 50 years, the visitor center of their Rutherford winery is undergoing a complete renovation this fall. ZD Wines continues to raise their bar for hospitality by elevating guest experiences, as well as offering enhanced private tours.
Enjoy an UnWined Tasting during the reveal of their newly renovated Vineyard View Room & Deck. The new tasting room will offer both indoor and outdoor seating options overlooking the vineyards of Rutherford in a relaxed, chic atmosphere.
A seated tasting experience will be offered with a sample of five award-winning ZD wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. A supplemental tasting of Abacus, ZD’s pinnacle, solera-style wine, will also be available for purchase. A hospitality professional will walk you through your tasting and highlight 50 years of winemaking from vineyard to glass. Please call the winery for availability and reservations, or to inquire about tours. Sit back, relax and UnWined.
