Owner and winemaker David Parrish was named as one of “Wine’s Most Inspiring People” by Wine Industry Advisor and the family-owned vineyard and winery was also named to Wine Business Monthly’s “Top 10 Hot Brands” list. Always focused on growing quality grapes and producing extraordinary wines, Parrish Family Vineyard is being recognized for its dedication to caring for the land, the fruit, the wines and the community.
