One of these was French pioneer Pierre Hypolite Dallidet, who established the area’s first commercial vineyard. English settler Henry Ditmas arrived soon after and planted the region’s first Zinfandel and Muscat. Many others soon followed, establishing wineries that are still run by their descendants.
Paso Robles also has its place in Wild West history. Drury James, uncle of outlaws Frank and Jesse James is one of the co-founders of the town, the original hot springs hotel and La Panza Ranch.

  • I love heading up that way! I just got back from a little venture to Paso Robles, Sta. RIta Hills, Los Olivos, etc. Was up there for 3 days and hit 35 wineries.

  • Victor Hugo Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Opulence 2005


    A very nice Bordeaux blend of Cab Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cab Sauvignon with aromas of plum, some raspberry and a hint of licorice with the same coming though on the palate. A nice smooth, drinkable wine. I've been to the winery and they are very nice with many good wines. Read More
