In every great bottle of wine, there is a story. Those stories are about people, passion, places, life, love, laughter, nature, and celebration. Stories are what inspired us to build Folktale Winery & Vineyards.

Each of our venue locations has its own unique feel and narrative. We invite you to discover and enjoy this idyllic setting with the award winning wines, food, natural beauty, comfortable climate, and the warm hospitality of Carmel Valley.
Just minutes from Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach, and Monterey, Folktale is a unique and memorable place to celebrate your special occasion.

Folktale winery was the perfect venue for our wedding! We had the ceremony at the courtyard, cocktail hour at the green house area and dinner in the barrel room. Our day of coordinator and folktale's venue coordinator worked together to make everything go smoothly. Everything was beautiful and we couldn't have picked a better place to say I Do.Sent on 09/25/2016

I absolutely loved Folktale Winery & Vineyards. It was the perfect place for us to have our intimate and romantic wedding. We had our reception in the Greenhouse and the Gallery. It was such a beautiful and memorable space. We worked with Christian throughout the year and she and the rest of the Folktale team executed an amazing evening that my friends and family continue to rave about! We are from Texas, so finding other vendors was a little difficult but she helped make recommendations and even reached out to the ones we picked to help coordinate for the day of. The culinary team is outstanding! We had beef, chicken, and salmon dishes that were excellent. Cooked perfectly! They even allowed us to stray from the set dessert menu and made us chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches to help make it more personal. Christian also sent a bottle of wine for the holidays, which is so very thoughtful! We were so pleased with every little thing and we couldn't have asked for more!Sent on 12/28/2017
