The MacMurray Ranch, once owned by popular actor Fred MacMurray and now owned by the Gallo wine family, is only open to the public only during the Sonoma Wine Country Weekend in Augus. It's one of several California wineries with celebrity connections, including wineries owned by "Godfather" director Francis Ford Coppola, the late "Davy Crockett" star Fess Parker, and the late "Perry Mason" star Raymond Burr.
