BobChats Wine Tasting with Ashley Parker-Snider ’86

While we hope our BobChats have expanded your minds, for our next BobChat, we hope you’ll expand your palates as Ashley Parker Snider ’86, leads us through a tasting of three different wines from her family vineyards, Fess Parker Winery. David Flash will be our host for the evening.

Established in 1989, the Fess Parker Winery has a long history in Santa Barbara Wine Country and is well known for its small-lot, vineyard-designated, and clonal selection Rhône and Burgundian varietals. Outstanding fruit sources, including some of the finest vineyards in the county, coupled with skilled winemaking, led by Blair Fox, form the foundation for the winery’s success. Over the last 30 years, Ashley has been involved in all facets of sales and marketing for the Fess Parker Winery & Vineyard.  

You’re welcome to join us regardless of how many bottles you choose to buy, if any!
