A New Look for Ancient Peaks

We are excited to roll out a bold new look for Ancient Peaks wines, starting this spring with our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc.

As you may know, the name Ancient Peaks is a tribute to the majestic Santa Lucia Mountains that shape pronounced marine climate and rare soil diversity of our estate Margarita Vineyard, which stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region. This strong sense of place is what drives the spirit and style of our wines.

In contrast to our original label, we felt that it was time to bring these peaks to the forefront with a new design that depicts both the grandeur of the surrounding mountains and the varied soil strata that distinguish the land.

In essence, we wanted our label to give you the sense of actually being here. We hope you agree that we hit the mark.

P.S. Click here for a more detailed look at the imagery and information depicted on our new label.

LA Times Shines on AP Events

The Los Angeles Times just took note of two upcoming wine events right in our backyard, and included two mentions of Ancient Peaks along the way.

In a piece titled “Three Spring Wine Events,” noted wine writer S. Irene Virbila showcases both the Vintage Paso: Zinfandel Weekend in Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo (SLO) Wine Country’s Roll Out the Barrels monthlong celebration in April.

Along the way, Virbila spotlights two related happenings here at Ancient Peaks, specifically our tri-tip sandwich offerings during Zinfandel Weekend, and our Sauvignon Blanc and oyster pairings for Roll Out The Barrels. Here's the lowdown on both:

Zinfandel Weekend in Paso Robles

Come enjoy two local classics—Zinfandel and Santa Maria Style BBQ—as we pair our latest vintage with tri-tip beef sandwiches from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on March 21-22. At our estate Margarita Vineyard, the Zinfandel grape achieves a rare balance of robust flavors and elegant structure—making it a perfect pairing for the juicy, spicy goodness of Santa Maria tri-tip. Bring your appetite and we’ll see you here. No RSVP required, just come on by. 

Roll Out the Barrels in SLO Wine Country

Celebrate our local marine influence on April 11 by enjoying our new release 2014 Sauvignon Blanc paired with local oysters on the half shell from Dorn's in Morro Bay. No RSVP required, cost is $2 per oyster, just come on by between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

We hope that you can come out for one or both of these region-wide events and enjoy our delicious happenings along the way!
