SummerFess Fesstival and Retrospective Tasting

This past Saturday, we had our first ever SummerFess Fesstival here at the Fess Parker Winery.  From 11am-3pm local vendors setup on our lawn sampling and selling their products.

Winery guests were able to sample and purchase chocolate truffles from Stafford's Famous Chocolates, fresh baked seasonal pies and pastries from Fork and Whisk, olive oil from Rancho Olivos, lavender products from Clairmont Lavender Farm, local honey and honey products from San Marcos Farms, local grass-fed beef from Dey Dey's Best Beef Ever, and purchase jewelry from Cookie Lee Jewelry.

Local rock band, Spun Honey, also joined us for the day's festivities; Playing original songs as well as covers of everything from Hank Williams and Tom Petty to No Doubt and Zach Brown Band.  

While tasting wine and enjoying the music, guests had the opportunity to buy some delicious Southern barbecue from local food truck Georgia's Smokehouse.

The Fess Parker Winery also held a special retrospective tasting in our estate barrel room.  Wine club members tasted different vintages from our wine library of Ashley's Chardonnay, Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir, and Rodney's Vineyard Syrah.  The tasting was led by a panel consisting of our Head Winemaker Blair Fox, Eli Parker, Winery President Tim Snider, and local journalist and wine writer, Gabe Saglie.  

Our first SummerFess Fesstival was a lot fun, we want to send a special thank you to all our vendors who attended, Spun Honey, and Georgia's Smokehouse, and of course to all our guests who came and helped make it a special day.
