Vince McGranahan

Tasting Room Educator 


Originally from Paso Robles, Vince didn’t realize he loved wine until he moved to Santa Barbara to attend UCSB.  Fascinated with the process of making hard cider, he was hoping for a job at a cidery, but since there weren’t many in the area, Vince decided be could settle for another product of fermentation…wine.  With that, he dipped his toe into the world of wine via a Tasting Room position at Melville, and the rest is history!  He fell in love with every aspect of winemaking — terroir, winemaking style, history, geography, the deductive tasting method, etc etc – and that passion led him to apply for a Harvest Internship at Epoch in 2021.  Vince immediately jived with Team Epoch, so at the conclusion of harvest, we were so thankful he wanted to stay on with us as a Tasting Room Educator.  Come taste with Vince soon!
