Located in the heart of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Maria Valley, Presqu’ile (pronounced press-KEEL) is a small, family-run winery dedicated to making exceptional cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Designed and planted to create a diverse tapestry of vineyard blocks, the sustainably certified, 73-acre Presqu’ile Vineyard features an array of clones, exposures and elevations. Made using this estate fruit, and grapes from a handful of the finest vineyards in the valley, Presqu’ile’s wines capture the essence of their vineyards and vintage, and have earned acclaim for their elegance and balance. Situated high atop a hill, with ocean and vineyard views, the stunning Presqu’ile Winery offers one of the most memorable wine tasting experiences on California’s Central Coast.
Presqu’ile Estate Pinot Noir is produced entirely from 100% estate-grown, hand-harvested, and destemmed fruit. Silky flavors of bright red berries, bing cherries, dried flower petals, sage, and mint mesh harmoniously together on the palate and lead to a savory, long-lasting finish. Serve slightly chilled with lentils, crockpot stews, or mushroom-based sauces.
