About This Winery
Santa Ynez- Enjoy the beautiful Foxen Canyon and the extensive grounds of our winery and taste our award winning wines. Have lunch on the veranda or find a table on our lawn.
Situated on the flat valley floor among giant mature oaks and expansive grassy lawns lies Fess Parker Winery and Vineyards. The attractive, large green-hued structure has a stone-columned veranda that wraps around the building. Under the veranda, tables and chairs supplement the traditional picnic tables that are scattered about the neatly tended property. A stone path leads past lush rose gardens on the way to the tasting room.
The grand tasting room has extensive gourmet foods, wine accessories, picnic baskets and logo clothes, as well as two attractive tasting bars looking out over the lawns and vineyards. Farther back, the space opens up and has the feel of a large ranch-house living room, complete with a rock-walled fireplace, couches, tables and chairs.
Mounted high on one wall is a large photograph of Fess Parker’s Daniel Boone character from his successful 1960s television show. A plasma-screen television plays the winery’s DVD along with movies starring Fess Parker. The winery has three vineyards; it also sources fruit from the region, including Pinot Noir from the Santa Rita Hills Appellation. Wines produced include Rhone- and Burgundy-style wines including Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinto Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and blends marketed under the Frontier Red label.
