Zaca Mesa is a family-owned and operated winery with a strong and passionate history in Santa Barbara County for over 40 years. As the first vineyard to plant Syrah in the area in 1978, Zaca Mesa has since helped pioneer the Santa Barbara Rhône movement through an unwavering dedication to Syrah and Rhône varietals. Rooted in history and inspired by innovation, Zaca Mesa combines traditional old-world winemaking practices with modern farming and vineyard techniques alongside the Code of Sustainability. Today, Winemaker Kristin Bryden and Assistant Winemaker Randy Gardenhire continue to uphold Zaca Mesa’s legacy as a producer of high-quality California Rhône- style wines that truly reflect our Santa Barbara County vineyard and appellation. Our tasting room features a large outdoor courtyard with picnic tables beneath ancient oak trees and alongside outdoor games and entertainment. Our newly introduced Club Lounge & Terrace offers stunning views of the San Rafael Mountains amongst an industrial-chic aesthetic. We invite you to join us for a tasting as you experience Los Olivos’ winding wine country.
Located within a picturesque stretch of Santa Barbara County, our vineyards grow seven Rhône varieties at the northernmost portion of the Santa Ynez Valley AVA. In addition to the oldest block of Syrah planted on the Central Coast, we now have nine clones of Syrah planted throughout our vineyards. With our high elevation and coastal ocean breezes, our vineyards are given a special advantage for growing dynamic, yet balanced, fruit. With soils and land formations that date back 50,000 years, we embrace truly distinctive vineyards, making us one of the most unique winegrowing sites on the California Central Coast.
