Attraction details
Owner description: Chateau Julien Wine Estate is located on 16 acres in Carmel Valley, California. The winery boasts breathtaking vistas of the lush green valley surrounded by the majestic Carmel Valley Mountains. The vineyard is highlighted throughout the seasons - from the breaking buds of spring to summer's lush leaf canopy and the abundant grape cluster display of fall. As the only winery on the Monterey Peninsula open to the public for tours, we invite you for a full wine estate experience!

“Wonderful Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

We so enjoyed our tour of the winery. The guide was witty and entertaining, all the while educating us. After the tour we sat for a while and enjoyed a glass of wine along with some crackers, cheese and fruit.

In early December, 2011, Chateau Julien hosted a wonderful a capella concert in their chai (above ground wine barrel storage hall). It was fantastic!
