We are wine club members and have been wanting to visit the winery for some time. We also stayed at the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn. As it was our anniversary we were upgraded to a suite and it was fantastic. Just an all around great place to visit. The weather was ideal. 50's at night mid 70's during the... More

One of the perks of staying at the Fess Parker Inn was a free shuttle to the vineyard. We were driven by Jonatahn who was extremely nice, pleasant and so informative about Fess Parker, wines and the vineyards in the area. The Fess Parker vineyard itself is beautiful, pastoral and so serene. There were many seating areas with comfortable sofas... More

This is an excellent choice for a picnic lunch - the grounds are breathtaking and well manicured. The tasting room was very pretty and low key. We enjoyed the wines here as well. Excellent port.

The wines I tasted were excellent. The staff was super friendly and the made the tasting very enjoyable. The grounds and tasting room were beautiful. The tasting fee was probably the cheapest of the 7 vineyards we visited. Of course I was a huge Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone fan! I did buy a bottle of the cheaper Chardonnay to... More

We got a flight of 5 wines each , a mix of white and red. Server was friendly and informative, and even pointed out the dump bucket (empty) so I could re-enact the scene from Sideways where Jack drinks it up. Beautiful grounds and very well laid out winery, with new patio furniture.

Beautiful vineyard with incredible wines and a wonderful staff. Loved the country vibe here and enjoying a glass of wine outside surrounded by greenery and horses frolicking freely just across the way. The tasting room is quaint and they are very generous with their pours.

I saw Sideways ... Actually have a long history with this winery, back when Fess was still around. When Eli was just cutting his teeth In the wine business, the quality of wine went way up here, then he branched out on his own and we followed him to Epiphany and some of the other wineries he had an influence...

I went to the Fess Parker Winery with my buddy because we were both fans of his but we heard they have some good wine. Well, I have to say we had a blast. The server was a riot and we ended up buying some coonskin hats like Fess wore as Daniel Boone on TV. We enjoyed some very good... More

We have had several good experiences over the years at this tasting room and this visit was no exception. The excellent staff permitted us to deviate a bit from the published tasting program and we appreciated that. We enjoy their wines, particularly the Rodney Syrah and look forward to opening those we purchased.
