“Hand-crafted with traditional methods”
We are a family-owned estate winery dedicated to Syrah, Viognier and other Rhone varietals. We hand craft our wines with integrity using traditional methods from grapes sustainably grown in our Santa Barbara County vineyard. Since 1973, we have farmed and nurtured our vineyard to produce wines that are true to the unique spirit of our land. Our rustic tasting room welcomes you to a tasting of six of our most popular wines. Our educated and friendly team will provide insights to our unique wines. The tasting flight changes every couple of weeks based on availability. The tasting is available for $10 per person. Relax on one of our many picnic tables or challenge your friends to a game of chess on our life-size chessboard. A quick walk on our hiking trail provides extraordinary sights of the Santa Ynez Valley. Tours and large groups can be arranged by appointment.
The Traveling Winers on Santa Barbara Wine Trail
Zaca Mesa Winery is in this peaceful, kinda rustic type setting, surrounded by hills and vineyards….very quiet and picturesque. When walking into the winery you pass through their patio area which is nicely decorated and has this way cool BIG chess set where you can play chess on the patio floor!
The tasting room is very large with a huge U-shaped bar. No crowding and elbow rubbing going on in this place! They also have a nice selection of wine “stuff” to purchase, but it is situated out of the way so that it doesn’t interfere with the tasting experience.
This winery has been around since 1973 and is owned by the Cushman family. They have 200 acres of vines and are one of the very few wineries in California that produce 100% estate grown wines.
We really enjoyed our visit at Zaca Mesa and our interaction with Molly! She says she has no Irish heritage, but we’re not sure….look at that hair!! Red as fire! Thanks for the great time, Molly! The Traveling Winers highly recommend this vineyard/winery as a must-see on your wine trail in the Los Olivos area!
