Matt Murphy grew up in Arkansas among a “wine-savvy family”. While studying molecular, cellular, and developmental biology at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Matt followed his emerging appreciation of fine wine, and his love of the land, and worked a summer at Signorello Estate in Napa Valley. At Signorello, Matt found that he loved working in the vineyard, and the collaborative nature of making wine. After graduating he moved west and continued his quest to learn more about winemaking the vineyards. After a decade of exploring, Matt and his parents purchased an estate and started from scratch. Today the vineyard is very well-regarded, as they sell grapes to almost one dozen wineries. The Murphys produce a small amount of wine under their own label Presqu’ile (pronounced press-keel) as well.

Vinous 95 Points: “The 2020 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard, from Block I shows all the class that is so typical of the best wines of this site. Silky and layered, with striking depth, the Bien Nacido Chardonnay is gorgeous. Light tropical accents play off a core of orchard fruit, mint and white flowers, with bright acids that pull it all together.”
Winemaker Notes: “Bien Nacido is one of Santa Maria’s most legendary sites. Despite its close proximity to Presqu’ile, it makes vastly different wines from our Estate. It has a bouquet full of guava, ripe pear and blossom notes, with an undertone of minerality and lime-like acidity and chalky minerality. This wine drinks great now but will age gracefully”
