- 2pm

It’s time to travel! ZAP is delighted to present our exclusive, superbly curated Ireland exploration beginning October 16, 2023. This package will be auctioned during our 2023 Winemakers Auction & Dinner, held on January 27, 2023. Whether or not you will be joining us to bid that night, you can secure your spot now at a guaranteed reserve price.

Hosting you on this journey is none other than Mike and Linda McCay. Mike and his family have farmed in Lodi for over 20 years, launching the McCay Cellars label in 2007. While Mike’s passion for Zinfandel is well established, he has been yearning to visit his ancestral home for ages and can’t wait to share the adventure. Mike and Linda are eager to discover the breathtaking landscapes, vibrant cities and taste the local whiskey and beers of the Irish. There is also a world of delightful dishes to eat, especially in Dublin, where innovative chefs are putting their mark on the culinary scene!

This trip offers the chance to venture a bit further afield for whiskey and beer at both famous establishments (who could go to Ireland and not visit Guiness) and craft producers.  Pub crawls, Irish dancing, hands-on bread baking, gourmet lunches and dinners, are just a few of the experiences you’ll cherish. You’ll also have a private flight to Aran Islands for a lobster lunch! 

Conjure up images of green rolling hills, rugged seaside cliffs and windswept rock formations with regal castles and rich heritage beckoning. The beauty and lively atmosphere, including the Irish people themselves are sure to charm. You’ll be staying in 5-star boutique accommodations and will find plenty of free time for exploring the delightful villages and countryside.

This is your opportunity to join Mike and Linda for 10 days and 9 nights of glorious pleasures. The magic of Ireland is calling.
