Three Beautiful Napa Valley Locations

The Crush Challenge was established in 2014 and showcases the very best of the Napa Valley with a goal of bringing awareness and funding to a select group of worthy charity efforts. Whether you join us for one of our incredible food and wine events, the private ride, or perhaps the entire weekend, we are excited to see you at the 4th Annual Crush Challenge, hosted by ZD Wines.

We welcome you to join our acclaimed chefs, celebrity guests and professional cyclists past and present May 11-12, 2018 to enjoy a weekend in the beautiful Napa Valley while helping our deserving beneficiaries: The deLeuze Family Endowed Professorship for the Non-Toxic Cure for Lymphoma, The Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson's and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Napa Valley. 100% of our net proceeds will go to these charities. Learn More →
