After a successful acting career, Fess Parker sought out and established his winery in the late 1980s, as a way to create a business to pass along to his children and future generations.  With an original 714 acres, he began by planting vines in 1989, in Santa Barbara County.  Today we have the happy occasion to sample his wines and present them for this fabulous dinner.  Tim Snider is President of the winery as well as husband to Fess’ daughter Ashley.
