ZD Wines is owned and operated by three generations of the deLeuze family. Producing world class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, ZD Wines is located in Rutherford on the beautiful Silverado Trail. Founded in 1969, ZD's mantra of "(Z)ero (D)efects" is based on founder Norman deLeuze's history in Aerospace - which set the tone for the winery's focus on quality, consistency and style. The ZD style is to craft rich, flavorful wines that reflect the varietal character of the grape. ZD has a strong internal emphasis on ecology. ZD's Estate Vineyards located in Rutherford and Carneros have been certified organic since 1999. The use of an implemented waste reduction program and a water recycling system are in place, and the entire winery is powered by solar, truly reflecting ZD's commitment to the health of the environment surrounding us. The winery welcomes visitors 7 days a week for the seated UnWined Tasting. In addition, special tour experiences are available by appointment, including our Vineyard View Tour & Tasting, Eco Vineyard Tour, Library Selection Tasting and private group tastings. The ZD website provides more detailed information about each of these options.

I'm in the business so I do a lot of wine tasting all over CA and I really enjoyed my experience and the wines at ZD. I hadn't been there in many years and the tasting room remodel is tasteful & classy but not overdone. The staff was welcoming and Tasting Room Mgr. Chris Musante did my tasting personally. He...

We went here the first time with a large (20 people) party and it was a great experience. Yesterday, we went back with just the two of us and the experience was actually even better than the previous visit. Jorge was our guide and is amazing (ask for him) and actually designed the pairings. The vineyard tour is still interesting... More

We visited ZD (Zero Defects, very catchy) the week between Christmas and New Year, we'd been to a bunch of wineries and sorta just ambled in to check things out. The fellow at the front desk was friendly and we paid for 2 tastings and off we went. Carson Moore one of the Hospitality staff was knowledgeable and helpful. I'm... More

I highly recommend sitting on the patio overlooking the vineyard. We were there near sunset. The soft sunlight and the spectacular Chardonnay was reminiscent of sitting in your favorite overstuffed chair with a cozy blanket.

We were greeted by Carson who provided us with a great detailed overview of the wines we were going to taste. He was very knowledgeable and made us feel welcomed at this beautiful winery. We highly recommend this winery and loved the wines :)

Great wines and loved the tasting room upstairs. Carson made the tasting such a great experience. Spring for a tasting of Abacus, so worth it. Not far from Napa and I recommend Beau Wine Tours.

For those of you who know all the Napa wineries and frequent them on a regular basis, this review is not for you. For anyone interested in the newcomers perspective of a fantastic Napa Valley winery, hopefully this will be helpful. My wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to enjoy a special tasting out on the gorgeous... More

We went here based on our hotels recommendation - said we would really appreciate the scenery. Yes, from the balcony it was a beautiful view. However, I think where this winery really shined was when Rafael greeted us and walked us through a very informative yet interesting wine tasting. He made the visit special and so worthwhile.
