My wife and I went to the Menghini Winery today in Julian and enjoyed some wine tastings and visiting with Toni Menghini one of the owners of the winery. This winery is located just outside the town of Julian on a windy road. It is located near the Volcan Apple Valley Farm Winery. Wine tasting used to be $5.00 and... More

Every year is a countdown to the next batch of Julian Gold. It is so good! I always try something new since every year has a different taste. Today I found the Chardonnay to be friendly to my palate. Not too dry and, to me, almost a sweet Riesling finish. My favorite winery and favorite people. Randy is so patient... More

The wine was okay, the whites were better than the reds. The Pinot Grigio (2013) was our favorite of the lot. They were out of a few, including the Cab. The location and gentleman working the tasting room were very nice.

If your in Julian CA and after you have had your fill of apple pie, this winery is about 2 miles out of town through a very scenic route. Just pay attention to the narrow road. This apparently is the only wine tasting offered during the week in this area. Mainly because they are there working anyway. Others in town... More

Very nice wines here - they do outsource many of their grapes. Their dessert wine in particular is quite good. If you're into wine and came to Julian for some apple pie, you're missing out if you don't stop here. Friendly atmosphere, reasonable prices, and good wine - the trifecta.

Wonderful little out of the way place with friendly and very accommodating owners. They did everything to make our trip enjoyable. Four beautiful and well behaved canines friends to show you around. The owner brought out a beautiful 193? Pierce Arrow for us to see and photograph. What an extra special treat! The wine was very nice and I am... More

We love wine and have been all over California. That said, this is a real find outside of Solvang area wineries for Southern California. We were really surprised by both reds and whites and enjoyed everything about our experience. The tastings are in galvanized steel barn and offered out of steel tubs with ice. The people are great and affable... More

Don't let the title throw you. I really enjoyed our visit to this winery. Of course, I enjoy visits to just about ANY winery. We got five tastings per person for five dollars per person. All of the wines we tasted were delightful, but our favorite was the Petit Syrah and we bought a bottle of that to bring home.... More

Lovely little winery off the beaten Julian path. Generous tasting for the price and delightful wines. We brought 3 home. One of the main reasons I wanted to visit the area was to tour some wineries (there are several) and this was one of the few that was open that day so I'm grateful for that. Adorable pup on the...
