This is our favorite Winery in San Diego County. Small Winery with Limited Production, but some of the BEST Wines around. The Old Vine Zinfandel is excellent and quickly sells out each year. They have a large selection of Whites, Reds and an Apple Sparking,...More

Went with a local who recommended a visit to this winery. The staff were very helpful and we got to sample a number of wines. A small winery with a very large variety of wines. Ended up purchasing a case with a nice discount.

When I get away with my wife, wine tasting is one of my favorite activities. While the wines didn't knock my socks off... this is probably the best wine tasting in Julian, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 3 (it'd be...More

As child friendly as any winery. U-pick apple orchard across the street. It should be child friendly if there in season.
