Located in the heart of the Santa Maria Valley, Presqu’ile Winery produces cool-climate wines from a variety of organic and sustainably-farmed vineyard plots that span nearly
30 hectares across Santa Barbara County. Each wine produced at Presqu’ile is a direct reflection of a specific vineyard site’s variety, vintage, and unique climate conditions. All
wines crafted at Presqu’ile are vinified with a minimalist mentality in the cellar, with the pursuit of terroir-reflection, purity, and delicious drinkability placed first.
Our Santa Barbara sets the foundation for how we vinify whites at Presqu’ile. This bright and refreshing wine is loaded with flavors of Meyer lemon, citrus peel, crushed white flowers, and saline. Pair this bottle with cheese boards, creamy pasta dishes, or a variety of grilled fish. VINTAGE NOTES 2021 was one of the coolest growing seasons in recent memory. In fact, it never really felt like summer happened. More like a prolonged spring that flowed right into fall. A late bud break combined with a cold spring and summer led to minimal fruit set and smaller berries. This yielded wines with nicely concentrated flavors, good tannin structure and great acid – all the makings of an exceptional vintage.
