Franciscan missionaries began growing grapes at Santa Margarita Ranch in 1780. The “Mission Trail” connected 21 missions throughout the 600-mile El Camino Real. This trail runs through the area which made it a natural stopping place for stagecoaches and Wells Fargo. Located in the heart of San Luis Obispo County, the production of wine has continued in the area. To understand this wine region, sample the wine selection at Ancient Peaks Winery.
Ancient Peaks wines are produced in small, crafted lots that are unique to the Paso Robles Wine region. During the tasting, each wine is paired with a tasting bite so that you can learn, not only about the wine production, but also about foods that it pairs well with. Small groups are welcome for a walk-in visit.
Larger groups of eight or more require a reservation. Following the tasting, take home a little bit of Santa Margarita wine to enjoy at home. Have lunch in the winery’s café then take a vineyard tour to learn more about the work the winery does.
