“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.’ ”
