Fess Parker

A Pioneer in Santa Barbara County

Established in 1989 and the 11th member to join the Vintners Association, the Fess Parker Winery has a long history in Santa Barbara Wine Country and is well known for its small-lot, vineyard-designated, and clonal selection Rhône and Burgundian varietals. The estate vineyard, named for Fess’s late son-in-law, Rodney Shull, is renowned for the quality of its Rhône varietals, having been called “an emerging grand cru site” by famed wine critic Robert Parker. Long-term contracts with some of the finest vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria AVA’s are the fruit sources for the winery’s Burgundian offerings.
