Join us at ZD Wines for a celebration of the 2022 harvest! Come and taste fermenting 2022 ZD Chardonnay from barrel. Immerse yourself in the complete Napa Valley experience – all while supporting the 10th annual day of giving for the Teen Center at Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley.
Beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 5, enjoy a welcome reception to kick off a festive and fun day hosted by the team of ZD Wines. Light bites served with our limited-production 50th Anniversary Reserve Cuvée and 2021 Sauvignon Blanc. Guests will work their way through the kitchen and meet Chef Jill deLeuze Billeci, ZD’s winery chef and 3rd generation of the founding family.
The group will be led through the White Room where the newly harvested 2022 Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc wines are fermenting in American Oak barrels. Take in the sights and aromas of harvest as you make your way to the cellar for a barrel tasting with ZD’s winemaker. Enjoy tastes of three different vintages of wines of at various stages – a 2022-, 2021-, and 2020-barrel sample!
Next, you will journey to the Vineyard View Room, ZD’s highly acclaimed tasting room with panoramic views of Rutherford. Enjoy more samples of current-release wines along with food pairings presented by Chef Jill. The Teen Center’s Youth of the Year – their highest award to an outstanding youth – will give an heartwarming explanation on how the club has helped them thrive in the community.
To become a part of the 2022 harvest with ZD Wines, tickets are just $75 each for First Taste members ($125 for non-club), limit 2. This experience is limited to just 75 guests, so be sure to reserve your tickets before they’re sold out. 100% of the ticket sales will be donated to the Teen Center!
