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.

We had a post engagement party at the vineyard and they made it easy to plan and enjoy! We were planning to have our wedding here as well but had to change plans due to living out of state and covid. However, while planning the wedding they were very helpful!! Would highly recommend and plan to eventually come back and plan an event when we can.Sent on 01/22/2021
