EXTRAORDINARY WINES and early California ranchero hospitality are at the core of Ancient Peaks Winery. Located along the southernmost border of Paso Robles, the winery is part of a 14,000-acre, historic working cattle ranch. 

Beneath the peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains, the 800-acre Margarita Vineyard is the sole vineyard within the Santa Margarita Ranch AVA, a sub-appellation of the Paso Robles AVA. The vineyard is meticulously farmed and has earned California’s Sustainability in Practice (SIP) certification.

The diverse array of soil types underlying the vineyards produces wines with natural complexity, while the marine influence of the Pacific Ocean—only 14 miles away—allows for extended hang time and optimal flavor development. The resulting wines express an unmistakable sense of place, vivid structure, varietal authenticity, and flavors that are truly unique to Margarita Vineyard. 

Guests are welcome to visit the Ancient Peaks Tasting Room, located within the quaint town of Santa Margarita.

Visitors are invited to experience the wines in the tasting lounge; relax on the patio; and enjoy light ranch-to-table fare, salads, and sandwiches from the Ancient Peaks Café. In addition, vineyard tours, zipline adventures, private tastings, and group team-building events are available by appointment.
