On August 1, 1857, Petronilo Rios bought a plot of land in what is now El Paso de Robles, California.

The Paso de Robles was called "Almond City" because it was named after a name that lasted until the Central Valley gained access to abundant irrigation. Today it is known as Almond City because almond farmers have created the largest concentration of almond plantations in the world.
In 1913, the Paso de Robles reached the river, and the South Pacific Railway, which expanded its operations, was a great boon to the people of the area. Rancho San Ignacio was the first land bought for viticulture and was founded in 1915, just a few years after the opening of the El Paso River. In 1920, the purchase of 2,000 hectares on which Petite Sirah and Zinfandel were planted attracted even more attention. This opened the way for a city that was truly founded, but it was not until the 1930s and 1940s, when large numbers of people from the Central Valley came to live and work, that the South Pacific Railroad expanded its services to Paso Robles.
Today Paso Robles with a population of more than 1.5 million inhabitants is one of the largest cities in the state of California and has several wineries of its own. The city is bordered to the north by the El Paso and San Luis Obispo rivers, to the south by the Santa Cruz river and to the east by the San Joaquin valley and the Rio Grande river.
