Inside Scoop

Ran­cho Cor­ral de Piedra was a 30,911-acre (125.09 km2) Mex­i­can land grant in present day San Luis Obispo County, Cal­i­for­nia con­sist­ing of two square leagues given in 1841 by Gov­er­nor Juan B. Alvarado to José María Villav­i­cen­cio, with an exten­sion of five square leagues given in 1846, by Gov­er­nor Pio Pico. The grant was located between present day San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande, and bounded on the south by Arroyo Grande Creek. José María Teodoro Villav­i­cen­cio (1800–1853), called for brevity Villa, was the sec­ond son of Rafael de Jesus Villav­i­cen­cio (a sol­dier and mem­ber of the Por­tola expe­di­tion) and Maria Ilde­fonsa Berges. José María Villav­i­cen­cio retired as cap­tain of the mili­tia at Mon­terey, and was admin­is­tra­tor at Mis­sion San Anto­nio and Mis­sion San Fer­nando. Villav­i­cen­cio mar­ried Rafaela Rodríguez the daugh­ter of Sebas­t­ian Rodríguez grantee of Ran­cho Bolsa del Pajaro. His brother, Rafael Villav­i­cen­cio was the grantee of Ran­cho San Geron­imo. With the ces­sion of Cal­i­for­nia to the United States fol­low­ing the Mexican-American War, the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo pro­vided that the land grants would be hon­ored. As required by the Land Act of 1851, a claim for Ran­cho Cor­ral de Piedra was filed with the Pub­lic Land Com­mis­sion in 1852, and the grant was patented to José María Villav­i­cen­cio in 1867. When José María Villav­i­cen­cio died in 1853, he left the ran­cho to his seven chil­dren. In 1860, his widow Rafaela bor­rowed money from her brother Jac­into Rodriguez. In 1866, Rodríguez con­vinced the heirs to sell him the entire ran­cho, which he sold to dairy­men George Steele and his broth­ers Edgar W., Isaac C., and Rens­se­laer E. Steele. In 1867, the heirs decided that the sale to Rodríguez was not legal, and sold six-sevenths of the ran­cho to George Alexander In cur­rent times… the ranch was re-purchased in 1973. At that time… the ranch had very lit­tle water, so we bought the ranch next to 3S (that had water) and we piped it in. Then about 13 or 14 years later we went ahead and had a well dug (on the prop­erty) and found a well that pro­duced between 2 and 4 thou­sand gal­lons per minute… nowa­days the ranch is cur­rently being use as cat­tle & veg­etable ranch.

REPORTER: Jamie Eddy

 

Spreafico Farms, a rustic vineyard, country style estate established in the gracious rolling hills of San Luis Obispo offers visitors and party goers the quintessential slice of heaven. For miles, the surrounding Edna Valley hillside flirtatiously curves upwards into soft peaks and dips into low valleys, adding to the serenity and delicacy that can be found on the grounds below. Today, the land maintains itself year round as a family-owned vegetable and cattle homestead, however still tightly manicured to host extravagant weddings and large-scale events. The owners—Brandon and Jim—are extremely present, looking to aid in any way they can, have without a doubt created an atmosphere that exudes kindness, comfort and elegance.

There are many reasons why people have and will continue to choose Spreafico Farms as their wedding or event destination, however, for a bride and groom in particular, we can imagine being immediately drawn to the idea of choosing from not one but two outdoor ceremony locations. Both options overlook the Edna Valley hilltops with rare 360 degree panoramic views, yet differ slightly depending on the soon-to-be-newlywed’s preference. With almost omnipresent California sunshine year-round, a beautiful outdoor reception is almost guaranteed. No matter the case, each structure and location on the farm presents itself as a photographer's dream scenario.
