Tasting Room Host
Ancient Peaks Winery
Tasting Room & Cafe - Santa Margarita
Ancient Peaks Winery and our estate Margarita Vineyard stand alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, tucked beneath the peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean.
Here, the vines unfold along a rare array of soils amid one of the region’s coolest growing environments. The resulting wines express an unmistakable sense of place, with vivid structure, varietal authenticity and flavors that are native to Margarita Vineyard.
Ancient Peaks Winery, Margarita Vineyard and the historic Santa Margarita Ranch are owned by three longtime local winegrowing and ranching families. We are proud to steward this land, and honored to share it with you.
Grapes were first planted at Santa Margarita Ranch in the late 1700s. Commercial winegrowing on the ranch began in 2000 with the planting of Margarita Vineyard. The ranch owners acquired the vineyard lease in 2005 and established Ancient Peaks Winery in 2006.
The Ancient Peaks tasting room is open Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at 22720 El Camino Real in Santa Margarita.
