Get Outside: An Epoch Picnic

by Lisa Lundy, Tasting Room Educator

 


While we shelter in place for yet another week, Team Epoch is looking for any opportunity to get outside and enjoy the fresh air (while still practicing social distancing, of course!).  Spring has officially sprung here in Paso Robles and the sun is shining!  Now is the perfect time to enjoy a picnic paired with your favorite Epoch wine.  Let’s start with the important things…

 

 

 

2019 Epoch Rosé

62% Mourvedre | 21% Grenache | 17% Syrah.

This wine literally soars across your palate.  Crisp, light and full of flavor, this Rosé is a staple, ladies and gents.  Minerality, slight essences of florals and fruits, and just a touch of salinity create the perfect concoction to flirt your way to serenity.  Unlike Love is Blind, no words are needed here; the color of our 2019 Rosé alone will bring you right to the diamond store.

 

 

 

 

 

Now let’s talk picnic pairings…

Packin’  up  the  Goods:

  • A light, creamy & gently aged Gruyere or Double Cream Gouda pairs to please the delicateness of the Rosé.
  • Shake it up a little – throw some Prosciutto on top of an enchanted cracker or ciabatta baguette slice.  For a real savory explosion, toss in some kalamata olives.
  • Are you feeling sweet yet?  The second half of this Rosé can be enjoyed with some dark chocolate covered almonds.
