Winemaker's Notes:

This crowd pleasing Chardonnay shows citrus aromas, orange peel, yellow peach, pear, orange blossom, hazelnut, fig and touch of honey on the nose.

With an elegant palate that incorporates flavors of pear, apple cantaloupe, light cream, toasty oak and peach, this white is sure to work well just about any lighter dish.

About Fess Parker:

When Fess Parker was cast in the roll of Davy Crockett in the mid-1950's, it caused an international sensation and changed his life forever. So, too, did the purchase of 714 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley change the course of the Parker family's history.

Realizing the potential of Santa Barbara County as a premium grape-growing region, Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out in 1989 to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers. But, as Fess' daughter, Ashley explains, "Fess is from Texas, so he can't do anything small." The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.
