Our sweet red muscadine wine is named Lott, in honor of Jacob’s father. Lott Paulk was born on October 18, 1888. He married Rachel Vickers on November 29, 1908. They had 5 children who grew to adulthood, with Jacob being the baby.
Lott was a farmer, a county commissioner, and very much a philanthropist in his community. He donated money for necessary hospital equipment and land for a local church, and helped young men start their own farming operations. Lott and Rachel were devout churchgoers, always showing up early in their Sunday best.
