Growing up in a family of notable winemakers, it comes as no surprise that Tessa Marie Parker has debuted her own label, Tessa Marie. Now at the ripe old age of 24, Tessa—the granddaughter of the late actor Fess Parker and daughter of vintner Eli Parker—already has six harvests under her belt and is producing approximately 1,000 cases of the Italian varietals Vermentino (an acidic, mineraly white grape), Sangiovese—“my favorite wine to produce,” she says—and a super Tuscan Sangiovese/Syrah blend. –Megan Pouliot
