“We are incredibly grateful to Presqu’ile Winery for this generous donation, and their commitment to their local community,” says Erik Talkin, CEO, Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. “Their contributions come at a critical time for the Foodbank, and will enable us to continue our mission to build a food secure community.” ABOUT PRESQU’ILE Located in the heart of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Maria Valley, Presqu’ile (pronounced pressKEEL) is a small, family-run winery dedicated to making exceptional cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Designed and planted to create a diverse tapestry of vineyard blocks, the sustainably certified, 73-acre Presqu’ile Vineyard features an array of clones, exposures and elevations. Made using this estate fruit, and grapes from a handful of the finest vineyards in the valley, Presqu’ile’s wines capture the essence of their vineyards and vintage, and have earned acclaim for their elegance and balance.
