In the late 1970's, Bob and Patty Brower set out to fulfill their dream. 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. This year they are celebrating 26 years in the wine business.

Pruning Begins for 2007
Fully 11 days behind 2006, we began pruning the Sangiovese in Carmel Valley on January 16th. The weather has tempered a little and finally we have daytime temps in the 50's. It will take about one week to prune these 4000 vines.
