'Only the gentle are ever really strong' #jamesdean #Cholame #CA41 #roadtrip

James Dean crashed his car in Cholame, California in this spot after coliding head on with Donald Turnupseed. Dean was traveling to a racing competition when his car crashed at the junction of California State Route 46(formerly 466) Jimmy was traveling with his friend and mechanic, Rolf Wutherich in Jimmy's Porsche 550 Spyder. Upon impact, Dean took the worst of the accident with a broken neck, and several internal and external injuries. Wutherich was also badly injured, but survived the accident. Dean, however, was pronounced dead on arrival at 6:20 p.m by physician Robert Bossert. Turnupseed, the driver who Dean collided with was only slightly injured with facial bruises and a bloody noise. After being interviewed by the California Highway Patrol Turnupseed hitch hiked home in the dark to his home in Tulare. Years after the accident Turnupseed supposedly became a recluse and refused to do any interviews regarding the crash. Turnupseed passed away in 1995 at the age of 63. #jamesdean #cholame #california #legend #1955

Beauty of land and wine are intertwined into the friendly experience at Hearst Ranch Winery’s 3 locations: San Simeon (below Hearst Castle, shown), their barrel room in Paso Robles, and Jack Ranch in Cholame)
.
The hand-crafted offerings of Hearst Ranch Winery are brought to life by the combination of sound agricultural practices, impeccable winemaking and the philanthropic involvement of Steve Hearst and Jim Saunders who met at a Hearst Ranch tour at a Hearst Cancer Resource Center fundraiser. Thumbs up!
.
Pop the cork of their “Bunkhouse” Cabernet Sauvignon and savor the joy of country living and their legacy of quality, synonymous with the Hearst tradition.

AWARD WINNING 2015 CABERNET SAUVIGNON “BUNKHOUSE”
.
This Cabernet Sauvignon's intensity shows immediately through its saturated scarlet appearance and through its warm and inviting nose that offers up aromas of black current, graphite and loam. While this wine has a lovely well-rounded attack, the finely-grained tannic structure is the backbone which underpins all its other qualities. Refreshing acidity plays nicely against the tannins allowing for soft and harmonious flavors of just-ripened plum and oak-spiced vanilla. As the wine progressed through the mid-palate and to the finish, the lingering flavors recede slowly as the regal tannic structure becomes most evident. This wine’s intensity and structure will evolve beautifully for years to come.

Happy 4th, to our Country's Birthday, Cheers! #mourvedre #industrialway #industrialwine #monterey to #buellton #cholame

Lost Hills is located just north of Bakersfield, CA. This mostly agriculture town lays in the path of Highway Route 46 (formally 466). Lost Hills is also home to the last gas station visited by the late James Dean. On Sept 30, 1955 while traveling to Salinas, CA in his Porsche to compete in a car race Dean was involved in a fatal accident that ended his life way too early. This larger than life cut out at that Texaco gas station commemorates Dean. #rebelwithoutacause #losthills #cholame #jamesdean #porsche #kerncounty #diazphotography #hollywood

Wine tasting inside our winery (excuse the barrels in the background) the tasting table gets moved around as needed so we can make our wine. Whites and #Rose have been most popular with the weather. #Cheers! #Monterey to #Buellton #industrialway #cholame #130

Stopped at the Jack Ranch Cafe for a little pie on my way home #jackranchcafe #cholame
