Presqu’ile (pronounced press-KEEL) is dedicated to the relentless pursuit of growing and crafting exceptionally elegant and balanced cool-climate wines that purely express our sustainably farmed estate, Presqu’ile Vineyard, and the Santa Maria Valley.
We take a minimalist approach in both our farming and our winemaking, allowing our wines to express the unique characteristics of the vineyards.
We specialize in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Aligoté, Gamay and Nebbiolo round out our portfolio. We also offer a series of sparkling wines using the centuries-old Champagne method, méthode champenoise.
Presqu’ile is a French/Creole word meaning “almost an island,” or peninsula. The name pays homage to our family’s former gathering place on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. For generations, it was a place rich with joy and the warmth of the human spirit.
Presqu’ile winery is our family’s effort to both honor and share that way of life.
