Wild Horse Winery & Vineyards
We made our first wine in a plastic tub.
Stirred it with a baseball bat. It was a senior
project at Cal Poly that very quickly became
a reason to be.
In 1981, we bought the winery’s first vineyard
and two years later released our first
two wines: a Pinot Noir and a Cabernet
Sauvignon. Our unconventional roots made
it possible for us to become who we are
today--the leading luxury winery on
California’s Central Coast.
We named the winery Wild Horse as a
tribute to the herds of mustangs that once
roamed the hills above the vineyards. And
quite possibly we also had in mind the
Cal Poly mascot – a galloping horse.
