With The Big Easy we wanted to pay homage to one of our favourite cities, a culinary mecca and great supporters of our wines, New Orleans.
Founded in 1989, the Fess Parker winery is located in Santa Barbara County, the Californian wine region made famous by the cult movie Sideways.
Just 90 minutes north of LA, Santa Barbara County is one of California’s most diverse viticultural regions. Sta. Rita Hills, in particular, is arguably the most exciting wine region in the world for making cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir right now.
"With The Big Easy we wanted to pay homage to one of our favourite cities, a culinary mecca and great supporters of our wines, New Orleans. Notes of blackberry, plum, smoked meat, acacia flower, vanilla, pepper and black cherry are found on the nose along with flavours of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, black cherry, all spice & vanilla on the palate. Enjoy this meaty, well structured blend to a long lengthy finish with its dense chocolaty tannins."- Fess Parker Winery
"A jammy blend that's fun to drink, with bold, fruit-forward blackberry, mocha and spiced pepper flavours that finish with refined tannins...Drink now through 2028." - Wine Spectator
"Roasted blackberry, charred blueberry and smoked meat aromas waft toward the nose in this brawny bottling. It’s viscous, slightly waxy and rich on the sip, full of açaí, cassis and more smoked meat flavours." - Wine Enthusiast
