Santa Maria Valley
Presqu’ile (press-KEEL), Creole for “almost an island” was a gathering place on the Gulf coast for generations of our family. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina ended an era. Our winery’s name honors that beloved place and all that it represented: a destination, a haven, and the easy rapport among all who “passed a good time” there.
Presqu’ile winemaking pays tribute to our Santa Maria vineyards. By hand harvesting at relatively low prix and minimal use of new oak, we seek to produce elegant, balanced wines that convey the soul of each wine.
elegant. balanced. smooth. delicious.
