Chateau Julien  

Chateau Julien is offering to donate $1/bottle for every bottle of wine sold during the entire month of May. All of the money raised during the month will target the Angels for Animal Fund at Nevins Farm. This special fund provides medical care for injured and sick animals while they await adoption at Nevins Farm. So come in and purchase a bottle or 2, or 3 and let’s all make some more money for Nevins.

In the late 1970’s, Bob and Patty Brower set out to fulfill their dream. Originally from the East Coast, they had a passion for wine and admired the French hospitality encountered while traveling in Europe. They saw the potential in Monterey County as a quality wine growing region, and in 1982 began building what is now known as Château Julien Wine Estate in Carmel Valley, California.

The winery’s first release came in 1985 with Chardonnay and Merlot from the 1982 vintage. Today, the entire process of wine production takes place on the 16-acre estate, including the aging of nearly 2000 oak barrels of wine. Winemaker Bill Anderson joined the Browers in 1982, and produced the winery’s first 100% Merlot with the premier vintage. Bill continues to produce wine at Château Julien Wine Estate, and has played an integral part in establishing Merlot as the winery’s flagship varietal.
