Fess Parker 2005 Santa Barbara Viognier – White Wine White Wine by Fess Parker from Central Coast, California. 100% Viognier This fragrant wine offers up aromas of peach, honeysuckle, apricot blossom, vanilla, and nutmeg with a touch of pineapple, ripe peach, lychee and citrus flavors. The subtle oak and spice combined with its refreshing acidity puts forward a balanced wine that is simply perfect with the floral aromatics of Asian cuisine and lighter fare.

If you are in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, especially in the area of Fairport New York, I would recommend you visit Casa Larga Vineyards. This award winning producer of high quality wines has won many awards including Best in Category for their 2006 Fiori Vidal Icewine in the 2010 New York State Fair.
And if you are in the area the weekend of September 19th 2010, you must attend their Purple Foot Festival. They bill this festival as a way to “Experience the Italian way of living with wine, food and family.” If you are interested in learning about enjoying wine and the wine lifestyle this is one event you don’t want to miss. There will be grape stomping, live music, wine tastings and seminars. Since it a family event you can bring the kids for hay rides in the vineyard and many more fun activities. This event goes from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm and tickets can be bought at the door (Under 21 free). For more information visit their website at www.CasaLarga.com
Even if you can’t visit for the festival their wine shop has wine tastings all year round. I would recommend you try the Fiori Vidal or the Fiori Cabernet Franc or both. If you have no plans for visiting the region you can still take advantage of their wines by buying online. Just go to their website and click on the tab for buying online.
