Welcome to the Broken Earth Winery Blog
introducing El Pasado | Heritage Series
Introducing El Pasado, the first in our new Heritage Series of wine.
El Pasado, meaning "the past" in Spanish has been crafted to honor and continue the legacy of our vineyard, Rancho Tierra Rejada. Originally planted in 1973, our vineyard is one of the oldest commercial vineyards in Paso Robles. The meticulous planning and development it took decades ago is a testament to the foresight of its founders.
El Pasado, in name and form, is represented by the oldest vines on the vineyard, a true expression of terroir. A Cote du Rhone Style Blend of Grenache (44%), Syrah (38%), and Petite Sirah (18%).
"The breath of the breeze
that gives life to the vines
is the same breath
our journey back
after a long day's ride
coming in from the range
on whatever highway we travel
the road that lies in front
is a shadow of the day
and promise to the lay of the land ahead
and every step closer to home becomes a reminder
that the load we carry
on the Earth we toil
to sustain our lives
and provide a legacy for our future
is a welcome burden
shared by friends
where at the end of the day
we are in good hands"
