Epoch is a must visit if you are on the central coast. The wines are fantastic and so is the entire team that works here. Come for wine or a special day and you won’t be disappointed.

Should you wish to take in the surroundings with a picnic, you are invited to do so in our outdoor seating areas.  We kindly ask that all food stays outside so that it does not interfere with our delicate wine aromas.  On that same note, we recommend that you enjoy your picnic before or after your tasting experience, but you are more than welcome to enjoy a glass or bottle of Epoch with your food if you so desire.


We love our K9 friends! For the safety of our guests and furry companions, we ask that they stay outdoors and on a leash for the duration of your tasting. There is ample napping room and water bowls on our crush pad and in our courtyard. Woof!


For groups of nine (9) or more, please call or email us to schedule your visit.  We are available via email, [email protected], or on the phone, 805.424.1935. A $40 nonrefundable tasting fee per person will be charged prior to your reservation. Arriving later than 30-minutes is considered a no-show. Thank you for your understanding!

“Epoch continues to pull heavily from their estate Paderewski Vineyard, but they’re also releasing new cuvées from their York Mountain estate as those vines come online. I expect this trend to continue. Looking at the wines reviewed here, I was able to taste all their 2020s now from bottle, and they’ve clearly produced some of the top wines in this challenging vintage. If there’s any smoke in these wines, I was unable to find it, and they have remarkable purity in their aromatics and ripe, polished tannins. I was also able to go through the 2021s with winemaker Jordan Fiorentini, and there are some legit genius wines in here that are as good as anything out there. I’d wager these 2021s are some of the finest wines produced from this estate, and I can’t wait to try them again from bottle next year.” - @jebdunnuck

Bill & Liz Armstrong, Epoch’s Owners, met at SMU freshman year in Geology 101. Both are still super involved in all things SMU, and today their alma mater received some very exciting news: SMU is moving to the ACC!! We think there is no better way to celebrate than with a glass of Epoch, so we have put together a special “Pony Express” case of wine available now on our website. Epoch is also the new sponsor of an SMU athletics podcast, so for football and SMU fans alike, be sure to check out Bill Armstrong talking wine, SMU, and the ACC on the “On the Pony Express Podcast” linked in our bio. Cheers! 🏈🍷

August has passed and Labor Day Weekend is upon us…! 
September is here and one of our favorite featured wines in the tasting room, 2021 York Mountain Viognier, just scored 96 points from Jen Dunnuck✨ 
#yorkmountain #epoch #epochwinery #pasorobleswineries
Our only site-specific white wine from York Mountain Vineyard, the 2021 York Mountain Viognier. 96 points, Jeb Dunnuck
“Looking at the 2021 Viognier York Mountain, which comes from a cooler terroir west of Paso Robles and includes 5% Roussanne, it has a Château Grillet-like perfume of white flowers, crushed stone, tangerine, and orange liqueur that's something to behold. Medium-bodied on the palate, with bright acidity and a clean, lengthy style, it has remarkable minerality and tension while at the same time staying quintessentially Viognier. I'd put this beauty up with the finest expression of the variety in California, and it will stand toe to toe with the best Condrieu out there.”
- Jeb Dunnuck

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 unmistakable beauty were just added bonuses!

The sandstone soils, mild coastal climate, and high winter rainfall here make the York Mountain wines not only distinct in location, but in character as well!
Our York Mountain Grenache, Syrah, & Viognier are still available in the Epoch tasting room 🍷
