An elegant and balanced Chardonnay that comes from the Santa Maria Valley, viticultural region that boasts long winegrowing seasons, cool-climate, and a ocean fog that rolls off the Pacific. The result is a wine that's bright and fresh, with medium body. Notes of lemon curd, wet stone, and a hint of oak hit the nose while the palate shows with fine minerality, salinity and citrus flavors. Truly a remarkable Chardonnay at an excellent pricepoint. Must try!
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.
The resulting wines are produced using both estate fruit and high quality fruit from select vineyard sites across the Santa Maria Valley and Santa Rita Hills. Presqu’ile aims to capture the true essence of its vineyards, vintages, and unique senses of place.
