Was looking for Pinot Noir and found it--plus a lot more. Our "guide" poured generously and frequently. Even told some bad jokes. Great winery stop.

Short drive from Los Olivios, beautiful estate, extensive grounds, easy parking. Tastings $14 for 5 samples....I only drink white/ rose so kindly substituted the reds for two more whites. Came away with a lovely Rose from the tasting menu and a delicious Dry Riesling which...More

We had a large group and went to the back room for the tasting. Only 2 servers for 30+ people wasn't the attention I expected. And there was no access, not even a peek, to see the wine making process. Compared to many other winery...More

This is a beautiful place to visit, it is almost like a retreat house. The grounds are massive, it has a great gift shop with great wine and food products. I will definitely go back if in the area again.

Just a gorgeous winery. You feel like you're in Tuscany. The wines are delicious - the Pinot Rose was amazing. We packed a picnic of delicious cheese and crackers and sundry at the Los Olivos grocery and spent a few hours lolling on the beautiful...More

Did not love this place. It was kind of stuffy and the wines weren't really that good for the price. Least favorite winery we visited in Santa Ynez.

Been coming to Fess Parker 21 yrs. Love the wine and the Parker family. You have to try their Big Easy blend! Visit them in Los Olivos and their Double Tree in Santa Barbara!

Yes, it's great for families, and yes, I believe outside food is allowed, but not outside wine. :) Best to check directly with the winery for details. Have a great time!
