History

This historic retreat was first constructed in 1982 when the Joullian and Sias families purchased the property and had the land re-terraced. Once the contouring of the landscape was complete, the families and the head winemaker, Ridge Watson, planted vines that covered a 40-acre portion of the land. The winery was opened in 1991 and featured Carmel Valley's first-ever Zinfandel, along with many other wines. Following Tom and Jane's new ownership of the venue in 2015, Ridge Watson stepped down in 2017 and new winemaker Matt Piagari stepped in. Now, the team continues to maintain the values of the original winery, which includes crafting complex wines with character and finesse.

The best day!

We had the pleasure of using Joullian Vineyards as our wedding venue. The drive out there in Carmel Valley is worth every minute! Josh was an incredible day of coordinator and allowed us to enjoy our day completely stress free! He was extremely organized and patient throughout the whole day. He played a significant role in making our wedding day everything we dreamed of! The venue itself was amazing! Being from the area, we tried really hard to find a venue that best captured the breathtaking views of the valley. We were so excited to bring all of our friends and family from out of state to enjoy the beauty with us. Not to mention the weather was absolutely perfect, which if you are from the area you know nothing beats the warmth in the valley. It was a little warm in the beginning, but Josh and his team worked quickly to ensure all of our guests were comfortable during dinner. Lastly, the bridal studio/house we used to get ready in was nicely decorated and provided a lot of space for my bridesmaids who were doing their own hair/makeup. We were able to give hair/makeup professionals enough space to work efficiently and comfortably. We will be thinking about how great this day was forever! Thank you to Josh and Joullian Vineyards for making this day so memorable!

Joullian Vineyards was an amazing experience

I had such a wonderful experience at Joullian Vineyards. Josh the event manager for Joullian was helpful at every turn. Had it not been for his help in whisking the couple away at sunset to capture some amazing photos and video our final product would not be as great as it was.
