“Presqu’ile is quite simply the most exciting new winery I’ve come across in several years… It’s hard to overstate just how remarkable these wines are and the statement they make.” –Alder Yarrow, Vinography
“Proprietor Matt Murphy and his family have been absolutely relentless in their total pursuit of excellence. Presqu’ile is an estate to keep an eye on.”
–Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Presqu’ile Unveils Winemaking Palace: “With bocce ball court views extending from Point San Luis to the dunes of Guadalupe to the historic Bien Nacido Vineyard across the river, the new winery — which required two years of steady construction to build and must have cost many millions, though the family won’t say — is making it much easier to get a taste of the Santa Maria Valley. And with sleek modernist architecture, the latest 21st-century winemaking technology, and a commitment to sustainable practices in both the winery and surrounding vineyards, Presqu’ile is bringing a polished style to the boot- and blue-jeans-wearing region, all while staying focused on making some of the tastiest wines around.” [www. independent.com/news/2013/jun/26/presquile-unveils-winemaking-palace/]- Matt Kettman, Independent
