Each year during SummerFess we have a special tasting looking back at memorable Fess Parker wines from older vintages. In past year’s we have done a retrospective tasting looking at several vintages from a single wine. This year we have decided to take a different approach tasting wines from a single fantastic vintage, 2009. It should be a wonderful exploration revisiting some of these great wines now that they are 8 years old. We think you will be impressed with their development in bottle. Here’s a sneak peek at what we’ll be tasting from 2009, Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir, Clone 115 Pinot Noir, Pommard Clone Pinot Noir, Rodney’s Vineyard Syrah and last but certainly not least, Crockett.  

Tickets are $50 for Wine Club Members - $75 for Wine Club Member guests ~ limited to 60 guests
