In 1969, aerospace engineers Norman deLeuze and Gino Zepponi, along with their families, turned their entrepreneurial enthusiasm toward winemaking. These were the early days of California's wine industry, and they were among Napa Valley’s adventurous winemaking pioneers. Their founding concept was to produce world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reminiscent of France’s renowned Burgundy wines. They achieved this endeavor by sourcing from the cool Carneros regions of Napa and Sonoma.
Today, three generations of the deLeuze family continue looking to the future with a commitment to family, community, the environment and the production of world-class wines.
THE MED's culinary team has taken the rich flavors of the ZD wines and created a menu that is perfectly complemented by those flavors.
