Hey Everyone! Here is a quick update on what has been happening with the Presqu’ile staff, winery and tasting room.
Amanda, Lindsey and I recently spent a few days in Napa taking a tasting room professionals course through the WISE academy. We learned a lot about how to create a memorable and enjoyable guest experience as well as all the technical things you need to know to run a successful tasting room business. After two full days of class and lots of practice I’d say we are ready to open a tasting room! Which is a good thing since we are planning on opening in Los Olivos on Thursday March 1st. Even though we haven’t officially opened we have had a few private tastings in the space and everyone had a great time!
Matt and Amanda were recently in LA at a Grammy luncheon which honored Grammy Nominees from Louisiana. Each Louisiana nominee received a bottle of Presqu’ile in their gift bags which we thought was pretty cool! Matt and Amanda also ran into our friend from New Orleans Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews. He preformed at the El Dorado Wine Dinner last year and has been a friend of the family for years. He and his band Orleans Avenue are very talented! Be sure to check out their site as well as their newest album “For True”.
Jonathan and Dieter spent this past Thursday and Friday bottling and we are excited to get our 2010 releases out. It’s going to be another great year for Presqu’ile! Maybe even our best vintage yet! Be sure to check out our website for updates on when they will be released.
Stay tuned for updates on the Los Olivos tasting room progress as well as the Santa Maria winery. For directions to the tasting room click here. Come see us in Los Olivos soon!
