Overview

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.

Our 2nd stop of wineries was here at ZD Wines. Very pleasant outdoor/covered patio and guest area for wine tasting. They have a beautiful wall art exhibit of a grapevine, with roots, and soil display. Wines at ZD are pretty good.More
