ZD Wines Description
ZD Wines, a beacon of viticultural excellence, nestles in the heart of Rutherford, Napa Valley. Since its establishment in 1969, this winery, guided by the visionary deLeuze family, has carved its niche in the world of premium winemaking. The winery’s strategic location in Rutherford, a region celebrated for its premium Cabernet Sauvignon, and the family’s unwavering dedication, have steered ZD Wines to become synonymous with top-tier wines and organic farming excellence.
The winery’s vineyards, a testament to their commitment to quality and sustainability, are the lifeblood of their renowned wines. The ZD Rutherford Estate Vineyard, a 3.2-acre expanse along the Silverado Trail on the eastern bench of Rutherford, is a viticultural marvel, producing wines that resonate with the terroir’s unique character. Equally impressive is the ZD Carneros Estate Vineyard, a picturesque 29-acre vineyard in the heart of the Carneros region, meticulously planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. These vineyards are not just plots of land; they are ZD Wines’ sanctuaries where meticulous organic farming practices are the norm, ensuring that every grape is a pure expression of the land.
ZD Wines is not just a winery; it’s a guardian of the earth. Embracing certified organic farming since 1999, the winery has been at the forefront of sustainable, biodiverse, solar-powered, and organic practices. This green philosophy is evident in every aspect of their operation, from the solar panels that dot the landscape to the organic gardens that flourish alongside the vines. The deLeuze family’s ethos, “great wines are made from healthy vines,” is more than a belief—it’s a practice ingrained in the very DNA of ZD Wines.
The winery’s portfolio is a vivid tapestry of flavors, each bottle a narrative of the rich Napa Valley terroir. ZD Wines Chardonnay, a golden-hued elixir, is a harmonious blend of fruit and oak, embodying the elegance of the Carneros region. The ZD Pinot Noir, with its intricate layers and velvety texture, is a testament to the cool, fog-kissed mornings of Carneros. And the ZD Cabernet Sauvignon, a bold and structured masterpiece, captures the robust spirit of Rutherford.
But the crown jewel of ZD Wines is undoubtedly the Abacus, a solera-style multi-vintage blend that encapsulates the essence of ZD’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Abacus is not just a wine; it’s a journey through time, a liquid anthology of every ZD Reserve Cabernet vintage since 1992. With each release, the legacy of ZD Wines is not just preserved; it’s evolved, offering wine connoisseurs a taste of history and innovation in a single glass.
As ZD Wines continues to flourish, its reach extends beyond the picturesque Napa Valley. For enthusiasts wondering where to find these liquid gems, ZD Wines are available through discerning distributors and at select retailers, ensuring that the legacy of quality and excellence can be enjoyed far and wide.
Celebrating significant milestones, ZD Wines has released commemorative editions such as the ZD 50th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon, ZD 50th Anniversary Chardonnay, and ZD 50th Anniversary Pinot Noir. Each bottle is not just a wine; it’s a testament to the deLeuze family’s relentless pursuit of perfection and their unwavering commitment to the art of winemaking.
In conclusion, ZD Wines is not just a winery; it’s a sanctuary where tradition meets innovation, where every bottle tells the story of a family’s love for the vine, and where every sip is a tribute to the sustainable, organic ethos that is the winery’s heartbeat. Whether it’s the ZD Reserve Chardonnay, the robust ZD Cabernet, or the intricate ZD Pinot Noir, every wine is a testament to the deLeuze family’s vision and the rich tapestry of Napa Valley.
