It’s a well-known fact in the Paso wine scene that our Winemaker, Jordan Fiorentini, has a crush on concrete.  These tanks are used solely for fermentation. They have large 36” lids that are helpful with pump-overs and punch-downs but do not work well for long term storage; as a result, we do not age wine in these concrete beauties. The tanks impart some minerality during fermentation, and the thermal dynamics of the concrete aid in the fermentation as well. The thick concrete walls hold in the warmth and/or cold when we need it.

The board-formed design on the outside of these tanks complements the design elements throughout the winery. “Board-formed concrete” is the name for a process of patterning concrete that leaves a wood grain image on the finished face of the concrete. Back in the day, farmers used boards to structure the concrete needed for the foundation of their buildings, so to honor the farmers of York Mountain, we utilize this practice in most of our concrete structures at Epoch.

Shared ground. Shared dream. 

A huge part of our story at Epoch is about preserving two integral pieces of Paso Robles history. When we purchased our Paderewski Vineyard in 2004, not only did we hit the jackpot as far as soils and views were concerned, we were also buying a property that was once owned, planted, and cherished by Polish pianist and Prime Minister, Ignacy Jan Paderewski. 

In 1913, Paderewski visited Paso Robles seeking the healing effects of its hot sulfur-rich mineral baths for his rheumatism. He fell in love with the town of Paso Robles (who wouldn’t), as well as with the surrounding land with its rolling, rocky hills that reminded him of his Polish homeland. This love for the area drove Paderewski to purchase over 2,000 acres on the west side of town where he established Rancho San Ignacio and planted Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Once harvest time, Paderewski would take his grapes to the York Mountain Winery where they were crafted into award-winning wines. Paderewski’s Paso Robles wines would receive numerous accolades, including praise from the Los Angeles Times noting his wines were “more coveted than his music.”

Epoch’s historic tasting room was once home to York Mountain Winery.  York was established in 1882, making it the first bonded winery on the Central Coast. Over the next 120 years, the Winery operated continuously until 2001. Sitting high in the rafters is a basket press dating back to 1895, that was once used by the York brothers. This press is intentionally placed in our tasting room to replicate the original positioning which allowed gravity to bring juice from the crushed grapes to the main floor.

Travel just west of Paso Robles, and you will find Paderewski Vineyard. Home to intense earth that bears little resemblance to typical California soils, this vineyard is filled with lean, rocky, and calcareous soil profiles.

Creating a patchwork of vines, the vineyard’s clone selections were carefully chosen to create the perfect match between soil and vine. In addition, the vineyard blocks were meticulously laid out based on their unique exposures, soil attributes, and mesoclimates. Today, you are able to taste the synergy created by the methodical planting decisions made in 2004, as each block is happily producing fruit specific to their exact location.

Tucked away in the oak covered hills of York Mountain, the 17,000 square foot state-of-the-art winery slips into the natural surroundings. Throughout our winemaking practices, we strive to create wines that are both elegant and bold. Each vintage we refine the art of balancing fruit, acidity, tannin, and alcohol.  Equal parts science and artistry, winemaking begins in the vineyards and ends in the bottle.

As stewards of the rich history surrounding York Mountain, we know how beloved this building and property are for so many long-time patrons.  Once the centerpiece of the York tasting room, this iconic fireplace is now the focal point of our beautiful open air courtyard.

It is obvious to us why Ignacy Jan Paderewski sought out this exact location to plant his roots – both personally and for his vines. The breathtaking views at Epoch’s Paderewski Vineyard, the soil composition, and the climate are unlike any other wine region in the world. We are beyond humbled to call this property our own, and will continue to honor Paderewski’s legacy by carrying out the vision we share for this land.
