A little off the beaten path, cool big building with outdoor seating... Diana was awesome! Great wines; prefer the Reds. If you go for a bike ride there, please take your cleats off before entering the tasting room. The candles smell amazing!! The wine tastes even better.... Enjoy!

Zaca Mesa has been a winery with great Syrah / Z Cuvee for many years. Then they started producing very solid white wines as well. Fantastic wines, and a great winery setting as well.

Very friendly staff who knew their wines. I tasted the reds since that is what i prefer to drink. Perhaps I should have tried their whites. The wines were not bad just not to my tasting. I would still recommend this winery. Beautiful outside area as well.

When people ask me about Zaca Mesa I tell them that IF the hippies from Haight Ashbury had left San Francisco and were driving their truck south ... and it turned over as it went around the curve ... this is the winery they would have established. My point is that it is surprising. Surprising in a good way. The... More

It seemed liked the people at the counter were not interested in selling or showcasing their wine. very un attentive! they were just going through the motions, not one ounce of information!

Stopped in for a prearranged tour and tasting. Tasting room staff skillfully handled a fairly large crowd for a weekday. Cathy and Ricki managed to keep everyone served while still being able to impart valuable knowledge about the wines. There are great views around the winery and is definitely worth a visit.

My wife and I liked the very reasonably priced 2013 Viognier ($16). My wife likes a sweeter white wine as long as you can taste the distinctive flavor of the grape. The other wines offered were just all right. Nothing special. Tasting fee is $10. Good service. Nice picturesque drive on Foxen Canyon Road to get to the winery.

Visited Firestone, Fess Parker's, and Zaca Mesa. Zaca Mesa was the first that we visited, and the atmosphere was just wonderful. Visited mid week, the Chardonnay was good, the Viognier was very good, for it's price point. We will be back to visit again, and this place will again be first on the stop list, after a nice lunch in... More
