Braden Bautista

Tasting Room Lead

Braden graduated in the Spring of 2018 with a Wine and Viticulture degree in Enology from Cal Poly.  Lucky for us, we were able to snag Braden a few days a week while he was still in school, so Braden has been part of the team for a few years.  After graduation, Braden left to work a harvest internship (focused on the lab) elsewhere, and now we are so thankful to have his awesome background and dynamic personality in our Tasting Room full-time.  That winemaking knowledge is being put to great use now as he heads up our Winery Tours!  During his free time, Braden loves to hike the local trails in SLO, play guitar, and expand his wine knowledge by exploring the local wine industry.  Clearly Braden knows a thing or two about vino, especially Epoch, so stop by to taste with him soon!  And if you would like to tour the Winery with Braden, shoot him an email at [email protected].
