Santa Barbara, California / $21-$22 Retail

Founded by the Murphy family of Arkansas and New Orleans, Presqu'ile Winery in Central Coast's Santa Maria Valley crafts small-batch wines. Aged in stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels, this Sauvignon Blanc exhibits fresh aromas of grapefruit, guava and floral bouquets and intense flavors of pear, lemon and apricot. There are pleasing minerality and subtle spice notes. A portion of proceeds benefit Samuel J. Green Charter School's Edible Schoolyard program. Drink it with oysters, scallops, Gulf fish, boiled seafood, gazpacho, cream soups, Cajun and Asian cuisines. Buy it at: Hopper's Wines and Spirits and Martin Wine Cellar. Drink it at: Emeril's and Restaurant August. — Brenda Maitland
