Fess Parker Wine Dinner

Fess Parker’s portrayal of Davy Crockett on 1950’s TV caused an international sensation, and changed his life. Parker bought 714 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley. Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers.

As Parker’s daughter, Ashley, said: “Fess is from Texas, so he can’t do anything small.”

The Fess parker Winery and Vineyard now consists of four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.

The best of Fess Parker’s wines and stories of adventure will be offered Feb. 23 at the Hilton in the second wine dinner of the season.
