We have lots of Epoch Moments but here are a few of our favorites.
Epoch Moments are built around friends, relationships, food and Epoch wines.
in 2009, long before Epoch released it’s first labeled wine, Kristen set us up with a property tour and barrel tasting. This was the beginning of our Epoch Moments and the beginning of great relationships with the people at Epoch.
Over the years we have tasted Epoch wines with Kristen, Kirsten, Stephanie, Christina, and Hilary and each one has treated us like family.
And, just this month we re-connected with Addie in the tasting room – having first met Addie at Booker in 2009.
The Epoch pickup party in September, 2012 was another relationship building event with Epoch wines. We had a chance to talk with Bill Armstrong and to develop a new relationship with winemaker Jordan Fiorentini.
On Thanksgiving of 2012 we shared a magnum of the 2008 Authenticity with our best friends – what a great experience! And, our friends then shared their 2009 Authenticity with us earlier this year during dinner at their house.
A small gourmet grocery in Orange and LA counties, Bristol Farms, had the Epoch 2010 Rose on their shelves in late 2012. We bought all they had and found the wine to still be drinking perfectly!
Jordan invited us to a barrel tasting this month which was a highly informative and fun experience. Jordan has a real infectious enthusiasm for her winemaking at Epoch!
Each spring and fall we look forward to our Epoch Entourage allocation knowing that the wines will continue to provide us with the finest in quality – a perfect match for our food, friends, family, and building relationships.
