One of the many great things about wine is its relationship with food. When food and wine are paired correctly together the two work in harmony to elevate each other; no single aspect of the food or wine overpowers the other. Now at the Fess Parker Winery you can come experience this harmonious relationship between food and wine for yourself.
Set in our barrel room we have created an intimate private tasting room for you and your guests. Your group will get to taste and enjoy an array of estate, single vineyard, and reserve wines along with a 5 course tasting menu created by our winery chef. The tasting menu will consist of 4 savory courses as well as a dessert course.
Our tasting menu always changes depending upon the season and what ingredients are available. Our chef is happy to work with your group to create a menu that will cater to any sort of food allergies such as gluten intolerances, or any sort of food preferences you may have.
