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.

  • We enjoyed our experience at Ancient Peaks; our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was fun. Unfortunately, we just didn't care for the wines we tasted.

  • We walked in without a reservation on a weekday. There is seating both outside and inside. They have a restaurant where you can have snacks or lunch. Shelley served us 5 wines from the pearl collection. I liked the 2019 whole cluster Syrah which featured a deep color and leathery palate. These wines are quite dry and have higher ABV. The 2020 Malbec is already good but could lay down for another year or two. They have several wine club choices. This is a large Winery with nice facilities.
  • First wine tasting ever today. The staff was very thorough and well knowledgeable about every item on the menu. They also made well advised suggestions on pairings. Area was comfortable and extremely clean. The vibe was very laid back!
