These Epoch Moments come from history buff and friend of Epoch, Dale Albrecht, from his journeys through the US. A few bottles of Epoch rode shotgun on his adventures, and Dale has provided some fun pictures to prove it. The first two photos were taken at Shelburne Farm in Vermont. What a beautiful estate…
A bottle of Epoch White was later enjoyed on the deck of the Carriage House (pictured below) in Charles Town, West Virginia. Charles Town was the first town founded in what is now West Virginia by George Washington’s brother. The Carriage Inn was originally owned by the Rutherford family, and it was used interchangeably by General Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, and J.E.B. Stuart during the Civil War, depending on which force occupied the town at that time. Dale enjoyed his bottle of Epoch White on an evening a tornado ripped through the historic town. In fact, upon his arrival, the innkeepers were still in the basement hiding from the twister!
At Epoch, we take history very seriously. We love paying homage to our ancestors and where we’ve come from, so we are so proud that Epoch wine was there to soak up all that awesome history with Dale!
Side note: Dale’s Great Uncle painted a portrait of our beloved Paderewski, so Dale shares the same sentiment for our favorite Polish Statesman and Pianist. He has so graciously offered to donate that portrait to us. Now that’s an Epoch Moment in itself. : )
