The Vineyards

Presqu’ile, pronounced “press-KEEL,” is a small winery is located in the Santa Maria Valley near the small town of Orcutt. In 2007, after a search that spanned the entire West Coast, the Murphy family acquired an ideal unplanted property high in the hills of Santa Maria Valley.

Presqu’ile is Creole for “almost an island,” and was the gathering place for the Murphy family on the Gulf Coast until Hurricane Katrina ended an era. Four generations of the Murphy family have partnered in farming, forestry, oil and gas, and conservation. Today, two generations of Murphys joined with winemaker Dieter Cronje and vineyard manager Jim Stollberg to form the soul of Presqu’ile. Located between the Pacific Ocean and the San Rafael Mountains, near Solomon Hills Vineyard, the 73 acres of certified sustainably farmed vineyards are located on a 200-acre property.
