Wine Tasting 4/27

Posted in Hollywood Vine Events, Uncategorized by HVINE ADMIN on April 22, 2010

Tony and Jo Ann Truchard have managed a successful vineyard and grown exceptional grapes for over 30 years, they helped pioneer grape growing in  Carneros.

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. 

Epiphany began in 1999 with the goal of crafting small production wines of the very highest quality and after several vintages of outstanding critical acclaim , Eli Parker was named “Winemaker of the Year – 2006” by the San Francisco International Wine Competition.
