Presidio Winery Description

Presidio Vineyard and Winery produces handcrafted premium wine from certified organic grapes grown on their Presidio Vineyard located west of the Santa Rita Hills near Lompoc, California.

The vineyard uses organic and biodynamic methods of grape cultivation. Their vines are planted in tight European style spacing of 3'x7' with over 2000 vines planted per acre. (Traditional California vineyards use 8'x10' spacing.) This increased planting density along with their "Guyot Simple" trellising system has produced some exceptional fruit from this cool growing area. See video at VineStories.

The wines are made with minimal intervention and mostly produces wines that have been unfined and unfiltered allowing more of the natural flavors to show in the wine. The produce Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sangiovese, Viognier, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and an Amador County port.

Visit their cozy tasting room in the quaint town of Solvang.

My favorite is 'artistic license Syrah 2006'. Even though they were really busy the staff made me feel important, I like the overall atmosphere and all the wines.

Presidio is a consistently good winery with very drinkable wines. We especially like their Viognier and Pinot Noirs. The tasting room is large and the staff are very knowledgeable.
