Wine Estate gears up for wine & car enthusiasts

during August’s classic car week

Dine amongst the vines and view vintage Ferraris at first annual event

Carmel, Ca. – Chateau Julien Wine Estate has organized week-long festivities to coincide with the region’s popular classic car week August 11 – 15, 2009. A premier Dine in De-Vine event will welcome guests into the vineyard for an authentic wine country dining experience nightly beginning at 6:30pm, with vintage cars on display throughout the evening. The Wine Estate will also host the Ferrari’s FCA Vintage Concours on Thursday August 13th, and welcome guests from 1:00pm to 4:00pm to view the rare collections. Both events take place amongst the winery’s 16-acre estate of vineyards, Chateau and cobblestone courtyards.
Effortlessly set tables will line the plush Sangiovese vineyard Tuesday through Saturday evening for the first annual Dine in De-Vine, offering guests a new option for dining during the busy week. Chef Terry N. Teplizky has prepared an inviting, elegant pre-fix Basque menu, with choice of entrée and wine, to be served amongst the vines, followed by a dessert lounge and vintage car display at the Chateau. “As long-time fans of the local classic car events, we hope that our evening dinners will enable visitors to experience our local wine country after hours- and see some rare concours quality cars,” comments Chateau Julien Special Events Director Michele Gogliucci. Featured evening highlights to date include Porsche, early 911S and R Group 1967- 1973, and Ferrari. Dine in De-Vine menu selections begin at $47 per person. Learn more about the menu, Chef and featured cars on the Chateau Julien website- News & Events. Reservations begin at 6:30pm each evening. Seating is limited so please make your reservations early.

During the day on August 13, 2009, the Wine Estate will also host its first Ferrari FCA Vintage Concours which will be open to the public from 1-4pm. Guests can view over 175 concours-quality Ferraris parked eloquently throughout the Estate, stroll Ferrari-lifestyle booths or indulge in a choice of BBQ, espresso bar, gelato or favorite Chateau Julien wine. Cost: $30/person, admittance fee, parking off-site.

Chateau Julien Wine Estate is located at 8940 Carmel Valley Road in Carmel Valley. Reservations can be made for both events on-line at or by calling (831)624-2600.
