Established in 1989, the family immediately began planting some of the county’s most renowned vineyards. Outstanding fruit sources coupled with skilled winemaking – in the past decade both Eli Parker and later Blair Fox, were named Winemaker of the Year by the San Francisco International Wine Competition – are at the core of delivering wines of the highest quality to our consumer.
The winery focuses on the varietal types that grow best in our cooler climate: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Syrah and Viognier. Many top critics have praised the winery’s quality and value including Wine Spectator, “One of 39 Names You Can Trust in California” and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, “This line up from Fess Parker is impressive.
A number of the higher-end wines are delicious, but I was struck by the quality of several of the estate’s entry-level offerings. These are some of the very finest values in California.”Visit fessparkerwines.com →
