About Folktale Winery & Vineyards

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.

Nestled in the valley just 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Folktale is conveniently accessible from the Monterey Airport and the Monterey Peninsula. An easy drive from Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area, Folktale is a one-of-a-kind winery destination. Situated on 15 acres of sustainably-farmed Sangiovese vineyards and gardens along the Carmel River, it offers numerous venue settings with which to delight you and your guests. Whether your group is small and intimate, desiring a large feast and celebration, or a memorable corporate retreat, our aim is to create an experience tailored to your group. 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.

Venues

  • The Rose Vineyard - Nestled in the vines beside our Barrel Room, The Rose Vineyard features a secluded large, grassy field perfect for Ceremonies and private events. This vineyard showcases majestic views of the property as well as the Santa Lucia Mountains beyond. This space can also be used in conjunction with the Barrel Room for an indoor/outdoor event, and is also a great spot for Post-Wedding Brunches or Summertime Bridal Showers.

  • The Barrel Room - Follow the cobblestone pathway to a private courtyard and through dramatic double doors into the spacious and breathtaking Barrel Room. This space makes an instant impression with over 1,000 wine barrels stacked from floor to ceiling. One of the largest and most unique indoor spaces in the area, the Barrel Room is incredibly versatile and has proudly been the setting for some truly memorable events from Weddings to Concerts to Galas.

  • The Greenhouse - The Greenhouse is the perfect space in any season. Offering privacy while bringing a balance of outdoors and indoors, this cozy space is anchored by our beloved handmade Monterey Cypress table. During the warm, endless summer days, the French doors open up and invite the garden sounds and ocean breeze in. When the weather turns chilly, this space transforms into a glowing and ultra-cozy space, equipped with heaters and our Sonos sound system. A green wall of indoor ivy and a canopy of nested plants add to the enchantment of this space, which is unlike any other. Perfect for Wedding Events under 55 guests!

  • The Wine Garden - Our Winery Garden is warm and tranquil. The lush green landscaping, colorful and fragrant flowers, and trees that provide dappled shade insist that you linger. Playful centerpieces and kilim pillows add color and comfort, while the string lights, fire pits, and hanging lanterns in the Strawberry Tree create a surreal glow in the evening hours. Invitingly beautiful day or night, this is an open space to spend the afternoon with friends and family, host a reception, or hold your large event in this idyllic atmosphere. Combined with the Greenhouse and Gallery, the winery area can accommodate events both intimate and grand.

  • The Vineyard House - Tucked within the vineyard is the luxurious Vineyard House, an ideal venue for upscale events and meetings. It offers four private rooms and a great room with twenty foot vaulted ceilings that generously open up to a wrap-around patio surrounded by vines; an ideal location for cocktails, dinner and dancing, or a private corporate retreat. The space is also equipped with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths - perfect for lodging for Wedding Families or Bridal Parties and other events under 80 guests.

    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.

    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!
