Fess Parker Description
Located on the picturesque Foxen Canyon Ranch, Fess Parker Winery is a testament to one man’s dream of creating a family legacy. In 1988, Fess Parker acquired the 714-acre ranch with a vision of running cattle, planting vineyards, and eventually establishing a winery to pass down through generations.
Today, Fess’s children, Eli Parker and Ashley Parker Snider, along with Ashley’s husband Tim Snider, are the stewards of this family dream. The winery officially opened its tasting room to the public in 1994, marking the beginning of an exciting journey.
The vineyards, situated on the ranch, include the Camp Four Vineyard, a testament to their commitment to quality winemaking. The farming practices at Fess Parker Winery prioritize sustainability and responsible land management.
Fess Parker Winery is known for producing a diverse range of wines, from Chardonnay to Rhône blends like Epiphany and the beloved Fess Parker Frontier Red. Their dedication to excellence has garnered recognition from wine enthusiasts and experts alike.
The family’s passion extends beyond winemaking, as they have launched various wine-related ventures over the years, including a sparkling wine program called Fesstivity and the Addendum Wines portfolio of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
In 2021, Fess Parker Winery achieved another milestone by releasing its first SIP-certified wines from Rodney’s Vineyard, underscoring their commitment to sustainability. Fess Parker’s legacy lives on through his family, their dedication to quality, and their love for the land and wine.
