Last night while watching Wheel of Fortune, the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn & Spa came up. Growing up watching Fess Parker’s roles as Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, I decided to Google the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn. It’s really interesting to see an actor from the 1950’s and 1960’s now involved in Santa Barbara’s wine country.
In addition to staying at the winery, visitors can enjoy the General Store where there are a variety of items to purchase including wine, coonskin caps, and Daniel Boone DVDs. A restaurant, Petros Los Olivos, is also located in the Inn.
The Fess Parker Winery & Vineyard is located in Los Olivos, California. Tours are available on Fridays and Saturdays at 12pm and 2pm. Reservations are suggested as only 20 people are permitted on each tour.
While I haven’t had the opportunity to taste a Fess Parker wine yet, I hope that in the future I will be able to do so! After all Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were childhood heroes of mine.
The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyards website is at http://www.fessparker.com/html/winery2.html.
If you won’t be able to visit, explore the online General Store.
