Ancient Peaks Winery, Santa Margarita

#38 of 137 in Wineries in San Luis Obispo County
Margarita Vineyard is the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast. Here, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774.

The name Ancient Peaks is a tribute to the geologic heritage of Margarita Vineyard, which is most evident in the towering mountains that preside over the vines. The ancient forces behind these peaks gave rise to the fossilized soils and climate-shifting terrain that distinguish our wines.

  • This is a nice option in our region for entertainment and learning. The people who work here are warm and accommodating. Light food menu, but good wines and a visit here can be a nice day, laid back.
  • Nice winery with indoor and outdoor dog friendly seating. They also have a good selection of food including sandwiches and cheese plates. Food and cheese is good. Some vegitarian options. Right on highway 58 so outdoors can be a little noisy but overall very nice.
