Overview
More
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 short time, we have quickly developed a big reputation for small production, hand-crafted, artisanal wines with abundant personalities. We produce estate-grown Rhone, Zinfandel, and Tempranillo varietals and our winemaker, Jordan Fiorentini, crafts our wines with minimal intervention in the winery so the most delicious wine makes it to your glass. We are located on the west side of the Paso Robles wine region on the historic York Mountain. We invite you to come taste the wines, visit the team and capture your own Epoch moment here on the historic York Mountain.

Epoch Estate Wines has simply hit it out of the park with their recent release of 2015 wines including their 2015 Zinfandel, Veracity, and Sensibillity. Each of these new releases is very approachable, drinks perfectly well right now, and is rated 95 points or higher...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
