10 Best Winery Tasting Rooms in USA Todays Top 10 Awards - Presqu'ile Winery

Thank you for voting Presqu'ile Winery one of the Ten Best Tasting Rooms in USA Today's 2018 Readers' Choice Awards

Our wines reflect a relentless pursuit of quality.

Located in the heart of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Maria Valley, Presqu’ile (pronounced press-KEEL) is a small, family-run winery dedicated to crafting exceptional cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Made using grapes from our own sustainably certified Presqu’ile Vineyard, and from a handful of the finest winegrowing sites in the valley, our wines capture the essence of their vineyards and vintage, and have earned acclaim for their elegance and balance. 

Situated high atop a hill, with stunning ocean and vineyard views, Presqu’ile offers one of California’s most memorable wine tasting experiences. Join us, and enjoy a taste of southern hospitality on California’s beautiful Central Coast.

Open That Bottle Night
2011 Library Trio

Wine is not meant to be a trophy or a financial investment. It should be savored with friends and family, accompanied by great food and better conversation. We all have that bottle, or bottles, we've been saving for JUST the perfect moment... which never quite seems to come. Open That Bottle Nightwas created by Dorothy & John Gaiter of the Wall Street Jounal to address this exact predicament.  It's about opening that bottle you've been hanging on to- stop waiting for the perfect occasion, forget the perfect drinking window- and making the wine its own celebration.

In anticipation of this year's Open That Bottle Night on 2/23, we are offering a trio of limited library wines that we feel are drinking particularly well so you may host your own Open That Bottle evening at home. The 2011 vintage is one that has really come into its own with age, and all three of these wines are stunning right now. 

Open That Bottle Night: Library Trio
~ 2011 Chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley

~ 2011 Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley

~  2011 Syrah, Presqu'ile Vineyard



6 Pack Special
2014 Steiner Creek VIneyard Pinot Noir

The 2017 Steiner Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir coming out this spring will be the last Steiner Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir produced by Presqu'ile Winery. We are sad to see it go, as this site has produced some beautiful wines, but we have decided to focus our efforts entirely on Santa Maria Valley- both our own Estate and other local vineyards of note- to explore the full breadth of what our wine growing region has to offer. 

To pay tribute, Presqu'ile is offering special pricing on one of our favorite vintages, the 2014 Steiner Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, for the month of January. And for our club members, your discount applies as well*.  Don't miss out!


Rescue Wine Collection

Santa Maria Valley Humane Society and Presqu'ile Winery have joined forced to celebrate dogs and cats and the people who love them with our Rescue Wine Collection.  “Sophie,” the winner of the Spokesdog Contest, and “Ashley,” the winner of the Spokescat contest, appear on these new releases just in time for holiday gifting. Proceeds from the contest and from each bottle of wine sold benefit the life-saving programs at the Humane Society.
