Our sweet muscadine wine is name 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.
