The Story

Our estate Margarita Vineyard is cradled along the coastal Santa Lucia Mountains just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here, amid one of the Paso Robles region’s coolest growing environments, conditions are optimal for producing a varietally true Chardonnay with a singular sense of place. We perform multiple picks during harvest to create a wine that strikes a fine balance between the leaner and richer styles of the varietal, all with the intent to create a versatile, food-friendly Chardonnay.

About Ancient Peaks

Brand Story

Ancient Peaks represents the shared vision of three longtime local winegrowing and ranching families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms. Two generations are actively involved in the winery’s daily operations, all dedicated to producing extraordinary wines from Margarita Vineyard. In 2005, the three families acquired ownership and control of the Margarita Vineyard which stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, tucked beneath the peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean.
