Of all the local wineries dragged down by the popularity of the movie 'Sideways', Fess Parker is perhaps the biggest victim. It's the site of the scene where a character drinks from the bucket of wine and saliva discards. I'm sure the tasting room has had it's fill of morons who cheerfully and drunkenly try to re-enact the scene.\r
Sad, because Fess Parker is a beautiful winery. It's the perfect spot for a picnic and the tasting room has a wonderful ambience to it. Wine tasting used to consists of a day of sipping small samplings of local wines, maybe having a nice little lunch along the way, and buying special wines. It's wasn't supposed to be the equivalent of a pub crawl.
Pros: Beautiful Grounds, Beautiful Tasting Toom
