Guests will arrive at the North Yountville Park for a private shuttle to escort them to ZD Wines in Rutherford. The winery will host you for an intimate barrel tasting event hosted by the founding deLeuze family and winemakers. You will enjoy samples of limited-production wines maturing in barrel, as well as offerings from large format and library bottles of wine.
Light food pairings will be presented by Jill deLeuze Billeci, 3rd generation of the winery's founding family.
All barrel tasting guests will also receive complimentary admission to the Food & Wine Garden at the North Yountville Park immediately following the tasting. The shuttle will return you to the entrance of the next event.
The outdoor Food & Wine Garden brings together top vintner and culinary partners in the Napa Valley at the North Yountville Park, featuring sumptuous bites, tastes of premium wines, and a brewery pouring cold beer. Entertainment includes live music by the Royal Jelly Jive band.
