  • About
    Our estate Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, tucked against the Santa Lucia Mountains just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here the vines unfold along a rare array of five distinct soil types- ancient sea bed, rocky alluvium, shale, volcanic and granitic. The resulting wines express an unmistakable sense of place with flavors that are native to Margarita Vineyard and its stand alone Santa Margarita Ranch Sub Appellation. The tectonic geological forces and cool growing region produce fruit with inherent balance, natural complexity, and rich varietal flavors.
    Ancient Peaks Winery is owned by three longtime local winegrowing and ranching families- the Filipponi's, Rossi's, and Wittstrom's. Two generations are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery.
    The wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast. Together the Ancient Peaks team is committed to making wines that honor the extraordinary character and flavors of Margarita Vineyard.
    Our downtown Santa Margarita Tasting Room & Cafe offers samplings of our wines as well as wine-friendly cuisine that embraces the local fare of our community. Wine and food can be enjoyed daily on our outdoor patio or in the Tasting Room.
