Zaca Mesa is my favorite winery in the Santa Ynez region, and one of my overall favorites. You must try the Black Bear Block Syrah! It is to die for. I'm also a big fan of their Z cuvee as an all around daily red....More

Revisited Zaca Mesa Winery, one of our favorites. They have changed a few wines as of late (Z-Gris and Chardonnay, both of which are drier than they were in the past :( ) Their reds are always satisfying. $15 and $25 for tasting options are...More

We had a lovely tasting at Zaca Mesa. It is a lovely setting among the live oaks. We inquired about their wine and cheese pairing but were told that they didn't have it at that time. I can't remember why. We were a little tired...More

We were familiar with Zaca Mesa's wines here in Pennsylvania, and were looking forward to visiting their source. We were very pleased with the warm welcome we received, and with the quality of the tasting, so much so that we joined their wine club.

Wine quality is high across the wide range of both white and red wines produced. Although we enjoy Zaca Mesa red wines, we find their white wines better fit our need for both dinner and summer deck white wines. So, (like previous visits), we bought...More

We like our wines, but wine tasting in itself at a winery is not our every day thing. So we were pleased to have a very low threshold entry at the Zaca Mesa, with friendly staff, a nice option of wines and just a good...More

Of the 13 wineries that participated in the Foxen Canyon tasting pass this was one of our favorites. Beautiful facility, friendly and knowledgeable staff, good wines and they appear to go the extra mile with live music and the likes

My husband and I originally visited Zaca Mesa in 1986. We have moved out of the LA area, so our visits are less frequent, but we remain wine club members! Our absolute favorite winery in the area, and back in 1986 was one of the...More

We have been to this winery before and enjoyed the fun atmosphere and good wine. But the wines being poured were not great, or even OK. They did not have any of their Chardonnays but other white wine varietals that didn't measure up. The reds...More
