“Ancient Peaks is quickly becoming one of our favorite consistent producers of affordable wines with lots of personality, sourced from the Margarita Vineyard, just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean.”

“If you don’t know about the Ancient Peaks brand, it’s time to start learning. Over-delivering in quality is the hallmark of these wines.”
       -Leslie Sbrocco, NBC Today Show’s “Bites”

“At Ancient Peaks Winery, a family-owned operation with a single estate vineyard, the perfect location has given way to some of the best wines coming out of Paso Robles.”
