Rooted in history, inspired by innovation.
Established in 1973, Zaca Mesa is a family-owned and operated winery with a long-standing history in Santa Barbara County. As the first vineyard to plant Syrah in the area in 1978, Zaca Mesa has since helped pioneer the Santa Barbara Rhône movement through an unwavering dedication to Syrah and Viognier. Combining traditional Old World Winemaking practices with innovative farming and vineyard techniques, Zaca Mesa continues its legacy as a producer of high-quality, California Rhône -style wines that are true reflections of the vineyard and appellation.
