California Delta

A unique agricultural hub of Northern California, we’re proud to call the Delta home for Pressley Vineyards. Located along the Sacramento River, the Delta provides a cool temperate climate that’s ideal for growing truly great wine grapes for our Pinot Noir and Albarino.


McCormack Ranch

Nestled in the rolling Montezuma Hills south of Rio Vista, McCormack Ranch is located on the Sacramento River. Our vineyard benefits from naturally cool winds that come west through the Carquinez Strait and help regulate vine growth.

Soil

The vineyard’s soils are Valdez series which have been developed from years of alluvium buildup from the Sacramento River flooding over its banks and settling silt loamy soils. These soils provide rich nutrients for our vines.

Varietal

The vineyard’s location and microclimate on McCormack Ranch make for the perfect Pinot Noir growing conditions. The flavors and medium-bodied characteristics of Pinot Noir, make it one of our favorite varietals.

Andrus Island

Our Albarino is grown on Andrus Island which is located between the Sacramento River and Georgiana Slough. With the river’s influence, the vineyard receives consistent mild temperatures.

Soil

Our Albarino benefits from Scribner clay loam soil, an alluvium buildup from the Sacramento River. The soil is rich in organic material providing the vineyard plenty of nutrients. Located below sea level the vineyard also receives a consistent supply of sub moisture from the Sacramento River and Georgiana Slough.

Varietal

A light bodied wine, our Albarino is refreshing and crisp. Native to the Iberian peninsula, this varietal thrives in vineyards that receive moisture and cool breezes.
