5 p.m. to 7 p.m., guests will enjoy

wine samplings, artisan cheeses from

“One might note that when it comes

to ‘family’ vineyards, there is not one

that epitomizes family more than Mac-

Murray,” said Brian VanSickle, food

and beverage director at the Crescent

Hotel, “for this vineyard’s namesake is

none other than Fred MacMurray the

actor, probably best known for his role

as the father in the television show

‘My Three Sons.’ ”
