When we decided to make a strawberry wine, we had a difficult choice in what to name it. We finally settled on “Satilla Road” to pay homage not only to where the strawberries are grown, but also to where so many in our family have grown up and where all of our wines are made. Satilla Road is the epicenter of our family, our farm, and our faith. Even those who didn’t grow up here or have moved on have wonderful memories of their time on Satilla Road.
Lott and Rachel Paulk built their home on Satilla Road, which runs through the family farm. That house is actually where Jacob was born and raised, and when he and Judy moved back home, they raised their four boys in that very same home. Years later, they encouraged Judy’s mother, Pearl, to come live with them. When that old homeplace burned in 1998, Jacob and Judy built a new home in the exact same location, being sure to include a room for Pearl, which eventually became a room for Judy’s sister, Jeannette.
Satilla Road is the “Main Street” of our family farm. There are no traffic jams out here, unless you count getting stuck behind a tractor or harvest truck, but it is certainly the center of all the action!
