Barrel Tasting at ZD Wines

An alternative to the cycling ride, the barrel tasting at ZD Wines is hosted by the founding deLeuze family and winemakers. Located in Rutherford, guests will sample wines maturing in barrel and enjoy light food pairings prepared onsite by a partner chef of Crush Challenge. Relax on the recently renovated Vineyard View Room & Deck overlooking the valley floor vineyards of Rutherford while sipping on award-winning ZD Wines.

All barrel tasting guests will receive complimentary admission to the Food & Wine Marketplace in Yountville immediately following the barrel tasting. Shuttles will be provided from North Yountville Park to ZD Wines and back.

Food & Wine Marketplace

Premium wineries and restaurants at the North Yountville Park from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 9, 2021. An all-inclusive afternoon of enjoying fares from some of Napa Valley’s top culinary and vintner partners. Check back often as we will announce more partners the closer to the event!

All cycling and barrel tasting tickets include admission to the Food & Wine Marketplace.

Pass through vineyard-lined avenues, sharing the road with cycling pros and friends of Crush Challenge (previous pros: Freddie Rodriguez, Alison Tetrick, Alex Steida, Brent and Jamie Bookwalter, Levi Leipheimer, and Christian Vande Velde). Enjoy a “rest stop” at ZD Wines in Rutherford to imbibe in the barrel tasting and food bites.
