On the Road with The Wine Wrangler: Ancient Peaks

On the Road with The Wine Wrangler

Life along California’s Central Coast is pretty spectacular, especially in the Paso Robles Wine Region where there are nearly 200 wineries to visit and enjoy wine tasting. With The Wine Wrangler, you can go on a wine tasting adventure any day of the week. One of our favorite wineries to take guests wine tasting is located in the Southern Paso Robles Wine Region in Santa Margarita RanchAncient Peaks Winery.

Ancient Peaks Winery is owned by 3 families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms in Santa Margarita Ranch. The name Ancient Peaks came from the winery’s location near the towering Santa Lucia Mountains, but it also reveals the unique microclimate of the vineyards and the complex soil so well-known that Wine & Spirits Magazine said that it was “perhaps the most dramatically calcareous chunk of earth in the entire state.”

Ancient Peaks Winery’s tasting room in the heart of Santa Margarita. The winery produces 6 wines that include:
  • Sauvignon Blanc: Crisp; tropical; notes of grapefruit and jasmine
  • Merlot: Notes of black cherry, blackberry, plums and spice
  • Cabernet Sauvignon: A wonderful tasting experience; raspberry, tobacco and oak
  • Zinfandel: Classic Zinfandel; cherry, white pepper, cedar and vanilla
  • Renegade: A favorite; black currant, wild raspberry and cola
  • Oyster Ridge: Complex and satisfying; cherry, cassis, blueberry and black olive

And no tasting would be complete without a visit to The Ancient Peaks Café where you can enjoy a sandwich or small plate.
