Wild Horse Winery & Vineyards

Central Coast

Our Story

Located in historic Templeton, Wild Horse Winery was named for the wild mustangs that roamed the hills east of our vineyard estate. Their free and noble spirit are a nod to Wild Horse Winery's commitment to spirited winemaking.

Wild Horse Winery founder, Ken Volk, originally selected the Templeton vineyard and winery location in 1981 for its low vigor soils, proven ground water table, proximity to Estero Bay and rustic vibe. Situated at a midpoint in the Central Coast, this location is ideal for sourcing fruit from vineyards north and south of the winery. Wild Horse Winery remains a champion of Central Coast winegrowing, committed to sustainable viticultural practices and creating wines that express the region's diversity.
The winery is open Thursday through Sunday from 11:00am to 5:00pm by RESERVATION ONLY. Please call 805.788.6300 to schedule your tasting.

The varieties of soil composition and microclimates that can be found within the expansive Central Coast appellation present the opportunity to cultivate the same varietal in a wide range of growing conditions. This fact forms a key philosophy for Wild Horse Winery winemaking: multi-vineyard sourcing. While estate or vineyard-designated wines are outstanding, they offer just one expression of the grapes. Growing the same varietal in different terroirs and then carefully blending the individual lots allows us a spice rack of flavors. The ability to taste vineyard-designated wines alongside these mult-vineyard sourced wines provides a true education and exploration of the varietal.
