A beautiful winery with a wonderful and engaging staff. Plus, who could not enjoy an afternoon looking at Daniel Boone memorabilia... and tasting the suburb wines. Joined the wine club too... reasonable price and includes tasting for life, not only there, but at a few other wineries as well, along with special events. Looking forward to heading back up there...

After bad experience at Firestone, we came here. Grounds were beautifully manicured. Cute patio to enjoy your wine. Went inside, girl bartender was great! Explained the wines, answered our questions. Wines were very good. Inside was decorated very well.such a pleasant experience overall.

We were on the Fess Parker Inn wine tasting package and started our out of town experience here. The drive from the Inn in Los Olivos was easy and we were happily greeted by beautiful vineyards, rose bushes, rolling greens and a magnificent stone tasting room. Once we received our first tasting we were told we could sit outside to... More

We were in the area for a 3 day weekend. This was a very pleasant surprise. A beautiful setting. Attentive service. Coonskin caps to wear in the tasting room if you want. This is a must stop on the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail. Sitting outside on the porch, enjoying the light breeze and sipping wine. We'd do this again and... More

We always loved Fess Parker wines and when in Santa Barbara a few years back, decided to go to the winery. It has become a place for us to always go and visit when we are on the central coast. We pack a picnic lunch and just enjoy ourselves. The tasting room is lovely and the staff has always been... More

We stopped for a tasting at Fess Parker and were pleasantly surprised. I had read some mixed reviews about the tasting room. Luis was our pourer and was very knowledgable about not only their wine, but the region's wine. He was able to compare CA wines in a way that was educational. Everyone's palate is different but his points were... More

If you're of a certain age, you may remember Fess Parker from his Disney work (Davey Crockett, Daniel Boone, Ole Yeller). He used his acting income wisely to invest in properties in and around Santa Barbara, including this winery. Very beautifully landscaped grounds, with just the right amount of Parker's acting memorabilia to give the place a special zest. The... More

This is the place to bring a picnic lunch, taste the wines, buy a nice bottle, and spread out on the lovely lawn to enjoy. The vineyards are right there, and the tasting room is roomie with several bars and lots of help.
