We strive to treat you like family, through respect, consideration, education and being non-wasteful in all areas of our lives.
To create a safe environment to unwind and relax in a welcoming calm place and get away from daily stresses.
To support our community and to build a tribe of like-minded people by providing a place to meet, learn, explore and grow.
“Wine starts in the vineyard” We don’t grow the grapes, professionally managed growers do that for us. This allows us to buy the best fruit from the best growers in the best regions across California. We carefully transport the grape clusters to the winery where we turn fresh fruit into award winning wines.
“Try before you buy” You can’t go wrong buying quality wine, but it is always fun to try if first. Our staff is trained to share our wines with you and help you better understand what you enjoy in a wine. Need a little help to pair your wines? You staff is there to help you out.
“Building a Community through Service” At Koi Zen, we are always hosting some form of event – whether it is a Fundraiser, a Charity, a Meet-Up, a Party or a Class. Our large tasting room holds over 100 people and it a great place to “gather the peeps” for some well deserved R&R. Hang out in some comfy couches and chairs or gather around a table and have some snacks.
The scientist debate on the merits of wine, but I do know that hanging out with friends is really good for everyone. Socializing reduces stress, reduces blood pressure, increases smiles and forms real bonds between people. In a world so “connected” and “plugged in”, why do so many people feel isolated and have low self-esteem, maybe because the interweb isolates people, but Koi Zen Cellars brings people together.
