Chateau Julien Wine Estate rests on sixteen acres amongst the Santa Lucia Mountains in Carmel Valley, a short fifteen minutes from the Monterey Peninsula. Family owned and operated since 1982, the French-style Chateau and full-production winery offer a magnificent setting for private events and group tours. Within the Estate there are various venues, each portraying a unique ambiance and atmosphere to capture the essence of every event. Picnic in the Garden Cobblestone Courtyard in the Carmel Valley sun; create a themed event in the winery’s magnificent Chai, home to over 1000 French oak barrels; or host an elegant, formal winemaker’s dinner in the enchanting Great Hall. Chateau Julien limited release wines from the soils of Monterey County will grace the palate as guests stroll through the Estate on a privately guided tour. Each tour is customized to meet individual group needs. In addition to our grand tour of the Estate, we offer several different options for personalized tours, such as grape stomps, cooking demonstrations and team-building activities.
