Since 1999, ZD’s Rutherford and Carneros Estates have been certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). Founder Norman deLeuze believed that great wines are made from healthy vines, and today his original commitment to sustainability is carried on in the winery’s approach to organic farming.
Certified Organic since 1999
Powered by solar and natural alternatives
We embrace solar and alternative energy in pursuit of the healthy vines that grow great wines.
As part of our focus on biodiversity, the winery hosts honey bees, owl boxes, chickens, and organic gardens, in addition to our longstanding organic winegrowing farming practices.
Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond the winery
Our solar-powered homes, electric cars and on-site charging stations make sustainability personal.
