Pinot Noir is arguably the most revered grape variety in the world with origins in Burgundy, France where the best expressions can still be found. Pinot Noir is not only a tough grape to grow, it also shows miniscule differences in terroir arguably more than any other grape variety. Stylistically, it is generally higher in acid and lower in tannin but can vary depending on the location, and winemaking technique. It is very versatile with food, and shows a range of flavor from red and black fruit, floral, spice, earth, and mineral qualities.

Fess Parker

Los Olivios, California


Fess Parker bought this 714 acre estate in 1988 with the idea of making it a working farm with a small winery, and ultimately an estate he could pass down to future generations. 


Fess Parker’s dream was met and while the estate serves many purposes, the winery is the ultimate focus and is now run by his children. 

The estate makes high quality Pinot Noir, sourced from the estate and vineyard partners that focus on natural and sustainable winemaking.
