Broken Earth

About Broken Earth

Rancho Tierra Rejada, Spanish for ‘land of worked earth,’ is the original name of the 2,500 acre Paso Robles ranch that is now home to the vineyards that produce Broken Earth Wines. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, grain and cattle were the primary commodities here. It was a land of pioneer families, vaqueros, banditos, and cattle barons such as the Miller & Lux Cattle Company. Paso Robles defined the real and true west before 1900. That pioneer spirit lives on today at Broken Earth Winery. Visionary Herman Schwartz purchased the property in 1973 and planted 520 acres to grapevines. Schwartz was an innovative grower with a keen interest in sustaining the environment and promoting Paso Robles as a high-quality wine grape growing region. He embraced sustainable farming techniques as they were first coming on to the scene in the early 1980s.
