“Joullian -Carmel Valley, California”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

What better way to escape the the Coastal fog than a quick jaunt up Carmel Valley Road to taste a little wine. Spontaneity is good, but so is tried and true. So a spontaneous trip to Carmel Valley Village, and a stop at Joullian Vineyards tasting room. Joulian was great, and has something for all tastes. Due to the winery’s remote location, Joullian opened its tasting room in the charming Carmel Valley Village to help introduce visitors to Joullian wines. All but their Chardonnay is grown in the Cachagua Valley, where you can count on warm summer days and cool nights. We particularly enjoyed the 2010 Sias Cuvee, Zinfandel - an interesting blend of 82% Zinfandel, 8% Primitivo, 7% Petite Syrah, and 3% Alecatio, Alicante Bouscet, Carignane, Grenache and Merlot! Took a bottle home, but there's a good chance it won't get to age more than a few days! So go and get your own bottle, and taste the other nice wines on offer.

“Another favorite in Carmel Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

They have a wonderful tasting room in the village and an even more beautiful winery way out in the middle of nowhere. You need to get an invite to their BBQ at the winery. It is a lot of fun. If you can't do that, at least try to make it out to the tasting room in Carmel Valley Village.

“friendly, no surprises”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We visited at the end of the day and were treated like friends. The staff very capably lead us through their offerings although a little light on knowledge of the product. Easy to get to just a nice drive east from Carmel along Carmel Valley Rd. Oh, and the wine is just fine.

“The people you'll meet!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Winery walking in Carmel Valley is an art in itself...there are so many (18) wineries to visit within walking distance, that you have to pick and choose. At Joullian, the people in the room are like the United Nations. We met a couple from Texas, of all places, Actually, she was from Texas and he was from England--but we both knew the same guy from Switzerland who was coaching soccer in Mill Valley. Small world syndrome. The wine pourer was a lovely, friendly, young woman, Amy, and the place was cute, and there were good bargains to be had. Loved it!
