Episode 76: Virtual Tasting With Fess Parker Winery & Vineyard CEO, Tim Snider
The Liquor Store Podcast
In this episode, Jill talks to Fess Parker Winery & Vineyards CEO , Tim Snider. When Fess Parker purchased the 714 acre Foxen Canyon Ranch in 1988 his plan was to run cattle, plant a few acres of vineyard and perhaps someday, establish a small winery. His dream was to start a family business that he could pass on to future generations. Dreams do come true. Eli Parker and his sister, Ashley, remain involved as stewards of their father’s vision. Ashley’s husband, Tim Snider, serves as winery President and oversees the sales, marketing and day to day operations of the winery. Blair Fox assumed the role of head winemaker in 2005. The home ranch vineyard, named for Fess’s late son-in-law, Rodney, has earned a great reputation for the quality of its Rhône varietals, while long term contracts with some of the finest vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA are the fruit sources for the winery’s Burgundian offerings. In recent years the winery has sharpened its focus toward production of more small lot, vineyard designated and clonal selection Rhône and Burgundian varietals.

Tim Snider is a virtuosic violinist, musician and songwriter. His dedication to his music, which started when he was 4 years old, is only paralleled by his constant seeking and his deep spiritual pursuits. You can hear it in his music and there is a truthfulness to his lyrics and voice that is a breath of fresh air for those feeling a sense of claustrophobia in this superficial, disconnected and materialistic time in which we live. He dives deep into his creativity and artistic processes, has gone deep down the rabbit hole so to speak and has come out with some gems to share.

To most of the world, Tim Snider is best known as the Violin Warrior in the band Nahko and Medicine for the People. But my fans might remember Tim from when we shared stages together back in the day, on the road during his time as the leader of a young band called Sol'Jibe.I know few people who’ve experienced 'the music life' from as many perspectives as Tim has. He started as a bandleader, and he built his band up to full-time multi-regional success around America. Then he went solo, and made his mark up and down the west coast as a one man violin looping show... and now he finds himself as a sideman in one of the fastest rising acts I’ve seen in recent musical history.We covered a LOT in a fascinating, two-part conversation... during the fiercest rainstorm Central New York has seen in years.Tim's website: http://timsnidermusic.comNahko & Medicine for the People: http://nahko.com/home/(Want the FULL interview?
