We are excited to share that Sunset magazine has named our affiliated Ancient Peaks Winery as one of just four finalists in the category of “Best Vineyard / Brewery Experience” as part of its inaugural 2015 Sunset Travel Awards.

According to the magazine, “Sunset… introduced the Sunset Travel Awards to honor excellence and innovation in the tourism industry across the 13 Western states, British Columbia, and Alberta. The awards recognize achievement in lodging, dining, cultural tourism, outdoor adventure, environmental stewardship, and other categories.”

The “Best Vineyard / Brewery Experience” category aims to honor “a Western brewery or winery experience that offers beer or wine lovers and novices an immersion into the brewer’s or winemaker’s arts that is both educational and fun and is underscored by an opportunity to sample excellent beers or wines at the completion.”

And that’s where we come in with our five ziplines, including the Pinot Express, which soars right over Ancient Peaks’ Pinot Noir vines. As we like to say, you may have toured a vineyard before, but never like this! And if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, Ancient Peaks offers intimate guided vineyard and food pairing tours every Saturday starting at 11:30 a.m. at the tasting room across the street from us. The Ancient Peaks hospitality staff personally drives you out to Margarita Vineyard for an intimate look at growing wine from ground to glass. Afterward, you return to the private tasting room annex for a wine and food pairing experience.

We hope that you will head over to Ancient Peaks and taste why they are a proud 2015 Sunset Travel Award finalist.
