Santa Barbara, California
Presqu’ile is a family-owned winery in the Santa Maria Valley, dedicated to crafting exceptional, cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah from Santa Barbara County. We designed and planted Presqu’ile Vineyard to create a diverse tapestry of blocks that feature an array of clones, exposures, and elevations. Four generations of family have been farming land in Arkansas and Louisiana for nearly a century. A love of the land, combined with a shared reverence for great wine and a desire to create something meaningful and enduring, led them to establish Presqu'ile.
Presqu’ile- French/Creole meaning peninsula, or literally translated, “Almost an Island”, was a beloved family gathering place on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It was a place that engendered a conviviality among family and friends, evoking a warmth of human spirit and a rapport among all who “passed a good time” there. In August of 2005, hurricane Katrina made landfall ending an era. We named our winery in honor of that place and a way of life.
