The Vineyard!
Ancient Peaks Winery. 
Our estate Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, tucked against the Santa Lucia Mountains just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean.
Here the vines unfold along a rare array of five distinct soil types- ancient sea bed, rocky alluvium, shale, volcanic and granitic.

The Wines!!

Sauvignon Blanc $15.99
The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a vivid varietal character that is rooted in our estate Margarita Vineyard.
Here, amid one of the Paso Robles region’s coolest growing environments, the Sauvignon Blanc grape achieves a fine balance of ripeness and raciness, with crisp acidity and appealing mineral accents.

Chardonnay $17.99
Chardonnay may not be a prominent grape variety in Paso Robles, but it nevertheless excels at our estate Margarita Vineyard.
As the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, Margarita Vineyard is located 14 miles from the ocean and just over the hill from the Edna Valley, which is known as one of California’s premier Chardonnay appellations.
The 2016 Chardonnay comes specifically from Block 26, one of Margarita Vineyard’s coolest spots.
The result is something you might not expect—a deliciously authentic Chardonnay with Paso Robles on the label.

Renegade Red $23.99
The 2016 Renegade comes from our estate Margarita Vineyard on the historic Santa Margarita Ranch.
From missionaries to gunslingers, roughriders to outlaws, a colorful cast of characters has traversed the ranch’s rugged terrain since the 18th century.
In that spirit, we have made an intensely flavored blend that pushes the envelope and resists conformity, adding an adventurous twist to our family of wines.
Defiantly bold and daringly elegant—this is Renegade.

Cabernet Sauvignon $19.99
Cabernet Sauvignon excels at our estate Margarita Vineyard, where it achieves both ripeness and balance amid one of the coolest, longest growing seasons in the Paso Robles region.
Here, our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted to a range of soiltypes, bringing added natural complexity to the wine.

Zinfandel $19.99
Our estate Margarita Vineyard has become renowned for producing one of Paso Robles’ most acclaimed Zinfandels.
Here, amid one of the region’s coolest growing environments, the Zinfandel grape achieves a rare balance of robust flavors and elegant structure.
Zinfandel has been a cornerstone variety of Paso Robles for more than 100 years, and we are proud to feature it in our small family of wines.

The Beers!!
Clown Shoes "Baked Goods" IPA, 4 pack $17.99
Hoppy Pale Ale | 5.5% ABV 
Baked Goods is a sessionable hoppy pale ale dry hopped with Mosaic, Azacca, Idaho 7 and Centennial hops, which add tropical fruit flavors and aroma.

Collective Arts No. 9 IPA, 4 pack $16.99
No. 9 is not as aggressively hop-focused as these numbered IPAs have trended in the past.
This one is a bit more subtle and nuanced, perhaps even refined, with a drier character that (I would presume to be) typical of a so-called Brut IPA.

SixPoint Citrus Jammer Gose, 6 pack $12.99
Citrus Jammer is a 4 percent ABV gose-style ale brewed with coriander and salt as well as lemon and lime juice.
As the name suggests, the new beer uses Sixpoint’s Jammer as its base.
Salty Tango with a twist—the tangy waves of JAMMER with just the right amount of lemon and lime juice. Time for some Vitamin J.  
A refreshing tart beer with a lemon-lime kick. Just tangy enough to tingle the tastebuds.
