|The Murphy Family
Presqu’ile winery is a venture with deep roots. For over a century, four generations of our family have partnered in farming, forestry, oil and gas and conservation. Today, two generations of Murphys form the heart of Presqu’ile: Matt, Amanda, Jonathan, Lindsey, Anna, Madison and Suzanne, together with winemaker Dieter Cronje and vineyard manager, Jim Stollberg.
To Presqu’ile Winery, we bring our heritage, pursuit of excellence, affinity for the land and the motto: If we aren’t having fun, why bother?
Presqu’ile arose from our penchant for fine wines, an inclination for adventure, and the discovery of Santa Maria Valley’s ideal terroir. Our property includes 73 acres of certified sustainably farmed vineyards on our 200 acre property where we craft Santa Maria Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah and Santa Barbara County Sauvignon Blanc. To complement our estate production, we partner with top growers to source additional outstanding fruit.
