Being born and raised in St. Helena, in the heart of the Napa Valley, my love for the wine industry began at a very young age. As a small child I have fond memories of going out to the ranch my mom was raised on helping out pruning the vineyard, and helping to harvest the grapes that she planted along with her family when she was a little girl in 1972. From there I would tag along with my mom to the facility she made wine in, I would shadow her around as she went from task to task.
As I grew, my mom continued to make wine as a hobby and I always found myself helping her, learning the ins and outs of the winemaking process from start to finish. Today there is still no better smell to me than that of fermenting grapes.
This early love and experiences have led us to create Pressley Vineyards and I personally am so excited to share the wines we have created.
