Epoch was founded on a simple philosophy, to strive to make wines that are delicious and complex, seriously fun to drink, interestingly iconoclastic, seductively hedonistic, thought provoking and hopefully, most importantly, memory making. In a...more

We enjoyed our tasting. The Reds were flavorful. The atmosphere was comfortable with a blend of rustic modern charm. The staff was helpful and friendly.

This wine estate is somewhat hidden from view off the main road but when you see the sign, do stop by. A stunning location and lovely wine. We bought a couple of bottles and definitely enjoyed them both.

Thank you for the nice review and coming to see us, Deborah! Haha, yes, we can be a bit tricky to find, but we think our tucked-away-ness is part of our charm. ; ) PLEASE come back and see us soon!

This place is stunning indoors and out. The wines were pretty good, but it took a long time to go through the tasting. Not because it was planned but they only had one host for 8 people, even though there were plenty of employees walking...More

This is the closest winery in Paso Robles to the Pacific Ocean. In fact, it is technically not in that Paso Robles appellation, it is in the York Mountain appellation. This is also the first bonded winery established in 1882 as York Mountain Winery. Today,...More

Would definitely recommend this as a stop. The building was really nice. Modern, sleek and beautiful. Wines were great. Service was excellent. It is a bit out of the way, but worth the trip.

Winery started in 1882!!! A number of different owners, as you'd expect. Today the focus is on Rhone wines -- at which they succeed fabulously. Nicole Roberts is the Tasting Room Mgr. Most knowledgeable, personable and all around wonderful. Too many wines to detail but...More
