Located in the heart of Santa Barbara County’s singular Santa Maria Valley, Presqu’ile (pronounced press-KEEL) is a small, family-run winery dedicated to making exceptional cool-climate wines. 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 vintages and have earned acclaim for their elegance and balance.
Presqu’ile is a multigenerational collaboration between Madison and Suzanne Murphy and their three adult children, Matt, Anna and Jonathan. No strangers to agriculture, four generations of the Murphy family have been farming land in Louisiana going back almost a century. The Murphy’s are also a family of wine lovers, with a deep appreciation for the world’s great Pinot Noirs. This love of the land, combined with their shared reverence for great wine, and a deep desire to create something meaningful and enduring together, led the Murphy’s to pool their talents and establish Presqu’ile Winery.
