Paso Robles Road Trip The Road Less Traveled
A Visual Journey
“This fall I spent a week in Paso Robles, Tasting Wines, and Making Images. I’d been several times to Paso Robles over the past 15 years. But, this time I fell in LOVE with Paso and made some really great friends.” ~ Mw
California State Route 46 West starts not far from where the Pacific meets Cambria, cuts right through Paso Robles dividing the north side from the south side. Once you cross over the sprawling hills and forever open ranch spaces you’ll come to a place where wineries cluster in a bucolic setting. To experience Paso Robles, I recommend spending at least three days to settle in and get to know her. Hit the back roads —> I recommend driving along Vineyard Drive & Peachy Canyon Road to see the visual riches that Paso Robles wine country has to offer. My recent visit to “El Paso de Robles, or “Pass of the Oaks.” a community of 30,000 nestled in the coastal mountain range of central California…” lasted a blissful week. I had two things going for me on this trip. 1) I did allot of research before heading out on my road trip. 2) I was blessed with unparalleled access. Most folks go tasting in Paso and never get past the tasting counter. On this week long journey I was welcomed behind the scenes spending a good part of each afternoon with winemakers and vineyard owners. Video interviews are forthcoming. Here’s a list of some of my favorite wineries visited. For now, enjoy the ride.
