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

This is one of my favorite tasting rooms in the Santa Ynez valley: a spacious bar and impressive trellis overhead. The staff is always bright and informative. And the yearly parties for pick ups etc are fantastic in the yard outside. I love both their...More

Great place to spend a quiet afternoon tasting wines. ZM is one of the oldest vineyards in the Santa Barbara region. They specialize in Rhone Varietals and do a great job of explaining their history and processes. We were part of a group tour so...More

Tasting at the winery was nice. However, I bought 4 bottles of wine and was still charged the tasting fee. 2 of the bottles were more expensive than any on the list. I really like the wine here but the policy that only you have...More
