Some memorable tastings happen completely on accident, and that is the case in today's featured tasting room at ZD Wines. Why I say this happened on accident is because we hadn't planned to stop here at all, but because we had an extra hour to kill before packing our things and heading back east, we decided to visit a winery we had spotted on our very first day in the Valley. ZD happens to be my husbands first and middle initial, and that is what spiked our curiosity to come in for a visit. We learned there was more than the initials my husband had in common with the vineyard - turns out the founders shared the same profession with my Z as well. They are all aerospace engineers. Talk about coincidence!

The greatest thing for us about visiting the Napa Valley is that each time we've visited, we've found a wine that we previously hadn't known about and ended up loving. ZD Wines was no exception. What happened to be a stop based on fun and curious coincidence ended up being one of our favorite wine tastings of that summer. I'm excited to try the new wines on my upcoming itinerary, and am confident I will bring back new memories, and hopefully a few new bottles! Blog posts to follow!
