The Santa Barbara Wine Collective and Fess Parker Wines in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone
The Santa Barbara Wine Collective and Fess Parker Wines celebrate the second release of Fesstivity Sparkling Wines from Fess Parker with a special tasting and freshly shucked oysters from The Jolly Oyster on Thursday, February 11, 2016 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Fesstivity sparkling wines are a collaborative effort for Parker siblings Eli Parker and Ashley Parker Snider. Ashley is a long time fan of “bubbles” and Eli relishes every opportunity to tap into his winemaking roots and get back in the cellar. This second-only release of the Fesstivity Blanc de Blancs and Brut Rosé has proven to be a great expression of their shared vision of fresh and exciting wines from the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The Santa Barbara News Press declared Fesstivity 2013 Blanc de Blanc as a ‘clear cut winner’ in a blind tasting of local sparkling wines. The February tasting is a rare opportunity to sample these promising 2014 releases.
Featured are 2014 “Fesstivity” Blanc de Blancs – Sparkling Chardonnay from the “Parker West” and “Ashley’s” Vineyards; and2014 “Fesstivity” Brut Rose – Sparkling Pinot Noir from the “Rio Vista” and “Ashley’s” Vineyards. To complement the sparkling wines during the tasting event, The Jolly Oyster serves their sustainably-farmed oysters on the Collective’s outdoor patio. Pricing $35 per ticket and may be purchased via NightOut at www.fpbubblesrelease.nightout.com.

ABOUT The Santa Barbara Wine Collective:
The Santa Barbara Wine Collective is a group of like-minded producers focusing on the unique terroir of Santa Barbara County. Each winery produces wines of elegance and balance while representing a true sense of place. We feature premium wines, most of which are rarely found outside of the estate properties. As the only tasting room in Santa Barbara County where you can soon taste wines from five different producers side by side, you will learn how different styles, climates and soil compositions directly impact the characteristics of each wine. All of these wines are available in tasting flights, by the glass, and by the bottle. The Collective has been embraced by both locals and Santa Barbara visitors and has received winning accolades from Food & Wine, Sunset, Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Seasons and Santa Barbara Life & Style.
