Wild Horse Winery was founded in 1983 by Ken Volk, and named for the wild mustangs that roamed the hills east of the vineyard estate. The mustangs represent the ideal symbol for the Wild Horse Winery's commitment to spirited winemaking. We create compelling wines from 16 diverse appellations and more than 40 vineyards from throughout the Central Coast region. The free-spirited attitude and sustainable-focused vineyard and winery practices are what makes our winery so unique. "Live Naturally, Enjoy Wildly" reflects the attitude and personalities found in all Wild Horse employees, from the vineyards to the tasting room who have been creating these wines for over 25 years.
