Fess Parker Properties to Open New Santa Barbara Tasting Room
Posted June 23, 2016
In The Fess Parker - A Doubletree by Hilton Resort
Santa Barbara, CA - The Fess Parker family of wines will expand its tasting experience with
the opening of a new tasting room inside Santa Barbara’s four diamond beach-front resort
property, The Fess Parker - A DoubleTree by Hilton Resort.
Opening its doors on June 22nd, the newest Fess Parker tasting room will bring together Santa Barbara’s iconic beach atmosphere with a rotating selection of 16 wines from Fess Parker Winery and Epiphany, focusing on limited production and single vineyard offerings. In addition, the tasting experience will be fresh and innovative featuring the state-of-the-art Enomatic® wine dispensing system, known for protecting the freshness, flavors and characteristics of each wine. Wines are enjoyed with the touch of a button, and savored as if each bottle had just been opened.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to bring the Fess Parker Winery experience ‘over the
hill’ to our hotel guests who aren’t able to journey to wine country during their stay,” said Eli
Parker, “It is a project we have envisioned for this property for quite some time. To see it come to fruition is very satisfying.”
The Santa Barbara beach-front tasting room, located off of the main lobby inside the resort, joins the Parker family’s long-celebrated Los Olivos, California properties, including Fess Parker Winery, Fess Parker Wine Country Inn, Epiphany Wine Co. and The Bubble Shack.
“The tasting room is our direct connection with the Fess Parker Winery,” commented Matthew LaVine, general manager of The Fess Parker – A DoubleTree by Hilton Resort. “Guests who pass through our resort doors will now have the unique opportunity to experience a variety of Fess Parker award winning wines indigenous to Santa Barbara and in an intimate and private setting.”

The Parker Family Wines Tasting Room
Posted June 23, 2016
At The Fess Parker - A Doubletree by Hilton Resort
Opening June 2016, the Parker Family Wines Tasting Room will offer guests a new, modern way to experience wine tasting. The tasting room features a combination of clean chrome and glass juxtaposed with aged barn wood and cork walls to bring the feeling of the vineyard indoors to the resort’s lobby.
The newest Fess Parker tasting room features a rotating selection of 16 wines from the Fess Parker and Epiphany cellars. Using a state-of-the-art Enomatic wine dispensing system, guests can self-serve wines in 1 oz. tasting servings, 3 oz. half-glass servings, or 6 oz. full glass servings. Each guest is given a card which they insert into the Enomatic, and which records the wine purchases as they are enjoyed. When the tasting is complete, the guest settles the final balance on the card.
Although the model of the tasting room is self-serve, we also have a full-time wine specialist on staff. Maria Docotou has been an employee of Parker Family Wines for some time, working both at the Parker Winery and the Epiphany Tasting Room in Los Olivos. Maria can help educate and answer questions about any of the wines and make suggestions to complement individual tastes. Maria can also assist with the purchase of wines by the bottle or by the case. As an additional service, we have the ability to ship out of state for any guests wishing to take wine home.
At this time there is not currently food served in the tasting room, guests can dine in the nearby restaurants: The Set, Rodney’s, The Roundhouse, and Java Del Mar. Currently hours of operation are 12 noon until 7 PM but this schedule is flexible based on customer demand.
For further information, please contact the resort’s Director of Sales and Marketing

SANTA BARBARA, Calif – January 23, 2014 – Steps away from the sea and iconic landmark lining Santa Barbara’s American Riviera® shoreline, The Fess Parker, a DoubleTree by Hilton Resort kicks off 2014 with a fresh, contemporary interior renovation of its 360 guestrooms and salute to its venerated founder – Hollywood icon Fess Parker. Available February 1 through April 30, 2014, The 50th Anniversary Daniel Boone Celebrity Package blends the best of coastal California accommodations with a frontier spin. Info:; 800.879.2929.

Marking 50 years since the tall Texan first graced the studios of 20th Century Fox, Fess Parker turned action-adventurer Daniel Boone into a national icon and successful television run from 1964 to 1970. To celebrate his pioneering spirit along Santa Barbara’s coast, The Fess Parker is rolling out a coonskin salute tied to the property’s new guestroom renovation.

Saddle up for a stellar stay with the 50th Anniversary Daniel Boone Celebrity Package which features guestroom accommodations, a complimentary bottle of limited edition Parker Family Reserve Wine available exclusively through the resort or at the Parker Winery, and a spirited commemorative food and beverage special : Custom Bourbon and Boone craft cocktail and Sweet and Smokey Pulled Pork Tostadas for two. Locally-sourced grapes, locally-crafted Cutler’s Bourbon and locally grown ingredients perfectly suited to a local legend. Rates start at $189.00/double, based on availability, blackout periods apply.

Known as one of Santa Barbara’s most prominent beachfront resorts, the 24-acre, AAA Four Diamond beachfront resort steps up with a crisp, contemporary interior renovation awash with elegance and simplicity.

Inspired by its fluid architecture and Spanish Colonial flair, Los Angeles-based Design Group Carl Ross, Inc., put a residential-style design spin on all 360 guestrooms and suites, including the coveted Fess Parker Suite with its triad of impeccable ocean views. The new interiors fuse Santa Barbara’s signature design style with a modern twist pulling on Spanish tile patterns and textured materials in a fresh earth-tone palette of sand, grey and clove. All soft goods were custom made including the upholstered furniture, carpet, wall coverings and fixtures. From the ornate hotel facade to the arched walkways, hand-crafted tile and wrought iron embellishments, the resort’s new renovation delivers a seamless transition from check in to check out.

Ahead of the curve and top choice by Fido Friendly Magazine, The Fess Parker has welcomed pets since 1986 and is the ideal venue given its beachfront setting along the Cabrillo bike path and miles of walking trails. Standard operating procedure includes a pet treat bag upon arrival and guestrooms conveniently located close to the expansive lawns. The resort also offers a “Paw”- and “Purr”-riffic menu sporting Howlin’ Ground Sirloin and Albacore Tuna, cooked to order on the in-room carte; pet-friendly dining is also available on the ocean view patio of The Set. Day rate for a maximum of two animals per room (all sizes welcome) is $30.00.
