PR: Eight-Time Grammy Award Winner And Entrepreneur Fergie Launches Family-Owned Ferguson Crest Wines


Date: 11/28/12

New Line of Wines Created By Fergie and Her Father, Pat Ferguson, Available on the Newly Launched Ferguson Crest Website

Fergie and her father, Pat Ferguson, are proud to launch Ferguson Crest, the brand new line of wines home-grown and produced at the family’s own California vineyard. Ferguson Crest will feature a Syrah, Cabernet, two Viogniers and a red blend to be called “FERGALICIOUS.” All products are available for purchase at www.FergusonCrest.com.

Set at the highest point in Solvang and overlooking Santa Ynez Valley, Ferguson Crest is a family-run boutique winery devoted to producing top-quality varietals. Founded by Pat Ferguson and his daughter Fergie in 2006, the winery captures the essence of Santa Barbara County, while tending its vineyards through organic, sustainability minded practices that help preserve the richness of the land.

“I am so proud and excited for the world to see and taste what I’ve been working on with my father for the last few years,” said Fergie, co-founder of Ferguson Crest. “Not only is it a thrill for me to open a winery, but to do so with my father makes it even more special. We hope Ferguson Crest will be a part of memorable meals and family gatherings for wine fans around the world. We know it will be as special to other families as it has become to ours.”

From the Viognier to the Syrah, the wine is cultivated by Ferguson Crest winemaker, Joey Tensley, a Food and Wine magazine award-winner whose Syrahs have ranked in the Wine Spectator top 100. The first grapes were planted in 2007, when the winery was only a half-acre of land. Since 2007, the winery has added over six acres of land, and harvested grapes for production in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 seasons.

About Ferguson Crest

Founded by Pat Ferguson and his daughter Fergie in 2006, the six acre estate winery excels in capturing the essence of Santa Barbara County terroir and reveals the Ferguson family’s uncommonly tender care of its much-treasured grapes. From the crisp, lush Viognier to the spicy and sumptuous Syrah, the winery’s bounty also evinces the ingenuity of Ferguson Crest winemaker Joey Tensley (a Food and Wine magazine award-winner whose Syrahs have ranked in the Wine Spectator top 100). All products are available on the Ferguson Crest website: www.FergusonCrest.com.
