With a Mediterranean climate and diverse soil types, the region is home to over 40 different grape varieties and more than 200 wineries. During Paso Robles Wine Month, we want to raise awareness of this incredible wine growing region and showcase the exceptional wines that are produced there. We believe that there is no better way to do this than by encouraging our supplier partners to get involved and help spread the word about Paso Robles.

A Brief History of the Paso Robles Wine Region
Paso Robles has a rich history of grape growing dating back to the late 1700s. The Franciscan Missionaries planted the first grape vines in the area in 1797, which were used to make sacramental wines for church services and Mission consumption. After the secularization of the California Missions in the 1830s, the land associated with Mission San Miguel Arcangel became the Rancho Paso de Robles Mexican land grant and later the town El Paso de Robles. The Mission's vineyards were abandoned until the late 1800s, when they were absorbed into the area's first commercial vineyard, Rancho Saucelito. By the 1850s, the area later known as The Estrella District was known for producing quality wine grapes. In the 1880s, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Muscat vines were imported from Europe, which are still part of the area's thriving vineyard heritage to this day. Andrew Jackson York, an Indiana farmer, established one of the Central Coast's first bonded wineries nearby in 1882, which was later known as York Mountain Winery and ran continuously until the late 1990s.
