Cholame Vineyard

In 2005, I went on a motorcycle ride in California’s Central Coast with Steve, a good friend from my high school days. While riding through the Paso Robles area, we took many of the back roads.  This area is primarily cattle ranches with a few vineyards and the most beautiful Oak trees you can experience, not to mention some of the best winding roads a biker can appreciate!  One of our stops included lunch at the Parkfield Cafe in the small town of Parkfield, located in the Cholame Valley.  Originally named by the native Yokut Indians, Cholame, pronounced [Sho-Lamb], means “The Beautiful One.” The name of this valley confirmed my experience of the area.
