Saturday March 30 is Last Day to Register for Zaca Mesa Winery Event on April 13; Don’t Miss Out—Sign Up Now!

College basketball’s marquee events—the men’s and ladies NCAA championship tournaments—are underway and “March Madness” in the sport is nearly at an end, baseballs are flying around the Major Leagues in games that count and Easter is this Sunday. These are sure signs that after a long and rainy winter spring has finally arrived!

LCOC’s first event of the new season—our Zaca Mesa Winery premium wine tasting—is nearly here. There has been a lot of buzz about this activity but time is running out to register. Saturday March 30 is your last chance to sign up so don’t fail to act.

LCOC is joining with the Cadillac & LaSalle Club to celebrate the return of Spring at this wonderful wine tasting and social event to be held April 13 at the Zaca Mesa Winery 6905 Foxen Canyon Rd, Los Olivos, CA 93441.

This region is one of the most scenic in the state and our date is planned at one of the best times of the year! If your classic vehicle needs exercise we would be thrilled to see it at Zaca Mesa, but a collector car is not required for your participation.

Our event is planned as a day trip, but with so much to do in this very active area you may wish to make it an enjoyable weekend getaway with an optional overnight stay in one of the nearby communities such as Solvang or Santa Maria.

Zaca Mesa Winery will host our main event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m for a wonderful car and wine experience right in their vineyard, where we will display our cars and enjoy their premium wine tasting followed by a group cruise to Los Olivos and/or Solvang.

Established in 1973, Zaca Mesa is a family-owned and operated winery with a long-standing history in Santa Barbara County. As the first vineyard to plant Syrah in the area in 1978, Zaca Mesa has since helped pioneer the Santa Barbara Rhône movement through an unwavering dedication to Syrah and Rhône varietals.

Combining traditional old-world winemaking practices with innovative farming and vineyard techniques, Zaca Mesa continues its legacy as a producer of high-quality California Rhône-style wines. We invite you to experience the true beauty of the estate overlooking the vineyards and the San Rafael Mountains.

Nearby Los Olivos (The Olives) is just a short 14-minute drive away and features an easily walkable quaint town of historic buildings and nearly 30 tasting rooms plus rustic stores where gourmet olives are sold among many other delicacies.

Solvang is about 25 minutes from Zaca Mesa by car and is famed for its Danish inspired buildings and food. Initially, most of Solvang’s buildings were built in the same style as others in the area. But after World War II, interest grew in the concept of a “Danish Village”. Over the years it has been a very popular day trip or weekend destination from L.A. Metro.

The pioneer of the Danish Provincial style was Ferdinand Sorensen, originally from Nebraska. In the mid-1940s, after returning to Solvang from a trip to Denmark, he first completed Møllebakken, his Danish-styled home, and then went on to build the first of the village’s four windmills. A little later, Earl Petersen, a local architect, gave the older buildings a new look, adding façades in so-called “Danish Provincial” style.
