   Carmel Valley Wineries with Tasting Rooms

Joullian Vineyards
Joullian Vineyards was founded in 1982 by the Joullian and Sias families with the goal of producing estate-crafted wines with the complexity, finesse and ageability characteristic of the finest wines of the world. Joullian produces approximately 12,000 cases annually of estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Carmel Valley's only Zinfandel and Monterey Chardonnay. Joullian's Chardonnay fruit is purchased from the cooler climate Salinas Valley vineyards: Sleepy Hollow and RogerRose.

Due to the winery's remote location, Joullian opened its Tasting Room in the charming Carmel Valley Village to welcome and introduce visitors to Joullian wines. We hope that each time you uncork a bottle of Joullian wine, you will taste the difference and appreciate our dedication to producing, "Serious Wines that are Fun to Drink"? Plan your next group tasting or special event with us at the Joullian Tasting Room for up to 20 guests.

Chateau Julien Wine Estate
Virtually all Chateau Julien wines are produced from grapes grown in the Wine Estate's local region of Monterey County. Winemaker Bill Anderson recently expanded beyond the Wine Estate's own vineyard to explore quality, diversity and unique varietal characteristics through additional vineyard partnerships within the Monterey County appelation. Long term relationships based on nearly 30 years of local wine production has allowed Anderson the flexibility to draw from multiple sources to produce the best quality for Chateau Julien Vintner's Collection, Private Reserve and Barrel Selected wines.

The Wine Estate is open daily for wine tasting, picnicking and tours. As one of the few local wineries that offer tours daily, we look forward to sharing our knowledge of the local wine industry amongst our vineyard and the hills of the Santa Lucia Mountains.
