Epoch Estate Wines | Templeton, CA
Understated and elegant, the landscape at Epoch Estate Winery tasting room takes the visitor on a trip to a much simpler time and place. The meticulous renovation of the original York Mountain Winery, completed in 2015, brought an updated aesthetic to a historic landmark. In the landscape, a new visitor parking area and entry path allow for the introduction of modern touches like weathered steel stairways, gravel-paved walkways and patio spaces and landscape lighting. Live Oak Trees were transplanted from within the 143 acre estate by the dozen, while rock walls, with material also sourced from on-site, reinforce the sense of history. The resulting landscape is a spectacular setting to enjoy a picnic lunch and some of the area’s finest wines.
