This winery is located off the beaten path and muscle been to the foothills of the Vulcan mountain. It’s surrounded by Apple orchards and the vineyards. It was a fun place to stop for my wife and I and we will return.

The wine was okay, the whites were better than the reds. The Pinot Grigio (2013) was our favorite of the lot. They were out of a few, including the Cab. The location and gentleman working the tasting room were very nice.

Very nice wines here - they do outsource many of their grapes. Their dessert wine in particular is quite good. If you're into wine and came to Julian for some apple pie, you're missing out if you don't stop here. Friendly atmosphere, reasonable prices, and...More

We love wine and have been all over California. That said, this is a real find outside of Solvang area wineries for Southern California. We were really surprised by both reds and whites and enjoyed everything about our experience. The tastings are in galvanized steel...More
