5391 Presqu'ile Dr Santa Maria, SA 93455
The Presqu’ile Vineyard is located a mere 16 miles from the Pacific Ocean. With 73 total acres of vines, it features 32 acres and five clones of Pinot Noir, 17 acres and six clones of Chardonnay, 16 acres and six clones of Sauvignon Blanc, 6.5 acres and three clones of Syrah, and 1.25 acres of Nebbiolo. The vineyard includes three different kinds of rootstocks, as well as own-rooted vines. Ranging in elevation from 700 to 1,000 feet, the undulating site provides an array of exposures that add to the uniqueness of the different blocks. In keeping with the Murphy family’s belief in stewardship and conservation, the Presqu’ile Vineyard is Sustainability in Practice (SIP) certified. Rigorous, non-negotiable and measured by an independent third-party auditor, SIP is widely considered the gold standard for sustainability certification. Unlike organic certification, which looks exclusively at chemical usage, SIP also audits social responsibility, water conservation, energy efficiency, clean water and much more.
