Santa Ynez Valley
The Santa Ynez Valley is the center for talented area vintners, including The Fess Parker Winery in an area where cooler coastal climate conditions create the perfect conditions for grapes of exceptional quality. The Santa Barbara Wine Country is renowned for transforming locally grown grapes into a variety of world class award winning wines.
Fess Parker Winery
Fess Parker’s vision of making wines of outstanding quality where friends and family can visit to share in the wine experience is evidenced in the hospitality of The Fess Parker Winery in Los Olivos. A range of tours are offered with wine tasting, Fess Parker history, winemaking practices, and “bin to bottle” practices of hand sorting, small lot fermentations and basket press.
Wine loving tourists join locals in Downtown Santa Barbara to walk the Urban Wine Trail, interlinking tasting rooms and winding through the Funk Zone. A long time quirky spot for artists, artisans and warehouses, the Funk Zone has experienced a recent explosion of personality and popularity with new restaurants and wine tasting rooms joining established favorites.
