epoch estate wines
"When setting out on our 'crazy' quest to make wine, we did not have our sights set on any particular wine region. However, we knew two things for sure: we loved wines made from Rhone varieties, and being geologists, we understood the importance terroir plays in the making of world-class wines. Upon extensive research and travel, we kept coming back to Paso Robles for the weather, unique soils, hilliness, and extreme temperature swings that are known to this region and are found within each of our vineyard sites - Paderewski, Catapult, and York Mountain. The cowboy culture, entrepreneurial spirit, and the potential to resurrect two amazing pieces of Paso Robles history were just added bonuses!
Today, we are beyond blessed to be stewards of these lands, and we are honored to carry on the legacies of York Mountain and Ignacy Jan Paderewski through our wines, wines that are carefully crafted from Rhone, Zinfandel, and Tempranillo varieties.
We hope to see y'all on York Mountain soon! Liz and Bill Armstrong, Owners"
