Fess Parker, the Texas-born actor, who played the television roles of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone in the 1950s and 1960s, moved his family to California and started his own winery in 1989. With a goal of creating a family business to pass on to future generations, Parker’s family continues to be involved and has now sharpened its focus to produce more small-lot, vineyard-designated wines made from high-quality Rhone and Burgundian varietals, which have won awards in national wine competitions.
