History

Driving north along the pastoral Foxen Canyon Wine Trail feels like traveling back to California’s early days. Rolling hills frame vast meadows, deer & wildlife roam free & pristine landscapes stretch as far as the eye can see. This peaceful environment enticed the late Fess Parker into buying a 714-acre ranch here back in 1988 where he initially planned to run cattle, plant a few grapes to sell to other vintners & establish a small winery. The Texas-born actor, who played the television roles of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone in the 1950s and 1960s, had moved his family to Santa Barbara in the early 1960s & begun construction of a bluff-top home. When heavy rains caused it to collapse onto the beach, he revised his plans & headed inland.

Parker, an only child, dreamed of starting a family business that he could pass on to future generations. He asked his children to join him. Eli, his son, started as assistant winemaker & spent three years under the tutelage of acclaimed enologist Jed Steele before taking the helm. Completed in 1994, the winery & tasting room are loosely designed after an Australian sheep station.

Eli Parker & his sister Ashley continue to stay involved as stewards of the family’s vision for the winery while Ashley’s husband Tim Snider serves as President & oversees day-to-day operations. The family’s vineyard is the 120-acre Rodney’s Vineyard, named after Fess Parker’s late son-in-law, at the 714-acre Foxen Canyon Road estate where the winery is located.
