Bordeaux grapes, the inspiration for Joullian Vineyards, led our founders to choose Carmel Valley for its warm, temperate climate and reputation of producing rich and flavorful wines. In order to add further complexity and elegance to the lush flavors of these hillside vineyard wines, we grow multiple clones of each grape variety at different elevations, exposures and soil types. With multiple varietal blocks, each in a slightly different set of growing circumstances, we have the ability to add extra dimension to our wines both in the field as well as in the winery. All Joullian wines receive extended bottle aging, ensuring that upon release the wines have begun to mature and develop their special Carmel Valley character, as well as extra smoothness, complexity and bouquet.
At Joullian, we focus on estate-crafted, world class wines of complexity, finesse and ageability. Owned by Tom and Jane Lerum, the Hammler Wine Corporation carries on the legacy of the Joullian brand with a focus on crafting exceptional wines.
The Joullian Tasting Room is located at the entrance of Carmel Valley Village in the distinctively classic stone building. Specialty tasting packages are available. Our barrel room is an intimate space ideal for any seminar or special occasion.
The vineyards and winery host several events throughout the year. We welcome guests to visit our estate for picnics and a tour of the property. There are several stunning sites, perfect for corporate events and special occasions.
