Chateau Jullien

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Chateau Jullien is one of the California’s leading wineries that has grown through excellence and quality of wines offered. In the late 1970's, Bob and Patty Brower set out to fulfill their dream and recognized the potential in Monterey County as a quality wine growing region. This resulted in the formation of what is now known as Chateau Julien Wine Estate in Carmel Valley in 1982.
However, Chateau Jullien’s first release came in 1985 with Chardonnay and Merlot from the 1982 vintage. Today, the entire process of wine production takes place on the 16-acre estate, including the aging of nearly 2000 oak barrels of wine. The winery boasts breathtaking vistas of the lush green valley where sunsets are unforgettable and rainbows bounce off the hills.
In 1996, Chateau Julien Wine Estate started a new venture with a partnership in an Estate Vineyard in South Monterey County's Lockwood Valley. Over 25 percent of the 246 acre vineyard is planted with the winery's flagship varietal, Merlot. In addition, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are also grown to experimental blocks of Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Syrah, Pinot Grigio, Marsanne, Malbec and Cabernet Franc.
Chateau Jullien wines signify the heritage of the winery. These wines typically have mild tannins and forward fruit, making them extremely food-friendly and approachable upon release. Their commitment to hospitality, quality wines and the soils of Monterey County is reinforced daily through the dedication of Chateau Jullien family. Nevertheless, there is a crucial process that defines their idealistic approach and establishes a reference for maneuvers exclusively suited to each fermentation lot.
