Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

This photo was taken many years ago, when it actually snowed at Zaca Mesa (yes it did!!).

And as we approach the holiday season marking the end of 2017, we can reflect on a few good things, a few challenges, and a few milestones.  

Zaca Mesa celebrated its 44th year in business, quite an achievement in the wine industry. 

We survived (and are still surviving!) several fires-

The Whittier Fire started July 8 near Lake Cachuma and (fortunately) was still burning July 17 when the Mesa Fire broke out across the street from Zaca Mesa. The Mesa Fire was on the flight path of the air tankers and helicopters fighting the Whittier Fire, so several tankers and helicopters were diverted en route and quickly put it out. The Thomas Fire is still burning at 272,000 acres and 65% contained due to the amazing work of over 8,000 firefighters. Our friends up north in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, and Napa did not fare so well, and our thoughts, hearts, and prayers for recovery are with them.

Zaca Mesa also had MANY 90-pt scores this year (35 so far and counting)!

With all of the good things, the challenges, and the milestones achieved, this was quite a year to remember. We hope it was for you, too, and that when you are with family and friends this holiday season, that you will be able to reflect on all of those things with a smile and a good bottle of Zaca Mesa wine.

Have a Happy Holidays and the all the best in 2018!
