The grounds are gorgeous, as is the tasting room. Very elegant and spacious. Our wine Diva was Linda, who was one of the most informative and fun wine pros we had met. She schooled us in such a fun and creative way we almost didn't want to leave!

Planning a trip to Yosemite National Park or one of the beautiful lakes nearby? Be sure to include a visit to Fäsi Estate Winery on your itinerary. Conveniently located off Hwy 41, the newly renovated wine tasting room at Fäsi Estate Winery is the perfect place to take a break and experience our world of fine wines. Erica Magarian the wineries manager was able to allow us to do a little video at the winery which will be shared elsewhere. However, you can view a short video presentation of several Central Valley wineries we produced. Here is a hint! You have just got to taste Fasi Estates Syrah and we look forward to some interesting wines coming out later being produced by Ken Post the winemaker. ~
These tasty little wines were introduced nationally in 2008 from California’s Central Coast and represented a finely crafted, fruit-forward, indulgent and eminently approachable style of wine. The inaugural release included Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Since then, Adam has used his experience and relationships around the world to add seven international wines to the lineup. http://underdogwinemerchants.com/
I heard about HDV through a Sommelier. Based on his recommendation, I decided to pay them a visit. They're owned by Larry Hyde of Hyde Vinyards & Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanee Conti in Burgundy, France.
This winery and tasting room are among the more intimate and rustic in Napa. I was treated to a private tasting that was hosted by their in-house wine pro, Lawrence Townsend. He slowly walked us through the wines (tasting lasted almost 1.5 hours) and shared the HDV story from the very beginning. We were pretty curious about their vineyard and their unique style of wines. Lawrence gave us his undivided attention and answered our questions leaving no stone unturned.
Tasting: $25 pp
Extremely reasonable tasting fee considering the quality and length of the tasting.
Fee waived with 3 bottle purchase- again, totally worth it.
By appointment only*

This winery is located along Highway 12 near the gateway to Napa. The current tasting includes 6 wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. The tasting room is located upstairs and allows viewing into the production area. Great experience here!
They are now re-branded as Reata.
Zach was awesome. He didn't just show us what was on the tasting menu. He first asked what wines we generally enjoyed, and then threw out a tasting catered to our preferences. We were also able to enjoy some of the wine makers' favorites imported from Italy. Honestly I don't think I enjoyed their wines enough to be a wine club member. But I would most definitely go back.

Franzia wines are fresh, delicious and made with a heartfelt commitment. Franzia is a wine first created by the hard work of the Franzia family during the first half of the 1900s. Today, our wines are enjoyed by people in countries all over the globe.
The tasting room is big, airy, and beautiful. our hostess conversed with us as though we were old friends. even gave us a few 2 for 1 tastings at other wineries! 10$ for 6 tastings. right off the highway, so don't miss it! delicious way to start the day at 10am!
In 1987, Parker purchased a 714 acre ranch thirty five miles north of Santa Barbara, in the Santa Ynez Valley, where he promptly set about planning and establishing Fess Parker's Winery & Vineyard. I remember visiting some years ago the Fess Parker Winery and my wife and I having lunch at their Inn. I also remember growing up wearing a coonskin cap and pretending to be Davy Crockett. I never met Mr. Parker in person; however, I just have to admit how sentimental and touched I felt when I heard that he had died. I guess it is safe to say Fess lives on through the family he has left behind and the legacy he has left to his family and indirectly to us, Fess Parker Winery.
