Enjoy the picnic tables, a life-size game of chess or partake in an in-depth tour and tasting
A family-owned and operated estate property with historic roots in Santa Barbara’s wine country, Zaca Mesa Winery & Vineyards has proudly produced hand-crafted wines since 1973. As only the third winery in the area, they helped pioneer the Santa Barbara Rhône movement and paved the way for future winemakers.
With 45 years of history, Zaca Mesa became the training ground for many of the area’s great winemakers. Names like Ken Brown (Zaca Mesa’s first winemaker), Jim Clendenon, Bob Lindquist and Daniel Gehrs, all got their start at Zaca Mesa, continuing to begin their own labels, and grow the reputation of the Santa Ynez Valley wine industry.
When visiting Zaca Mesa, sit back and enjoy your tasting, or if inclined, delve deeper into the history of the wines and winemaking process. The winery offers a variety of fun and interactive learning opportunities, including winery and vineyard tours.
