The winery was started by Bob and Patty Brower in 1982. Originally
from the east coast the Browers headed to California to fulfill their dream
of beginning a winery. The French Country Chateau was built to create an old
world atmosphere which exudes warmth and hospitality. The Browers decided to
begin their venture in one of the best well kept secrets in the state... Monterey
County. Less than 15 years later, Monterey County is one of the leading wine
producing regions in the world. Monterey County grapes, state-of-the-art equipment
and experienced Winemakers result in these world class wines.
Chateau Julien Wine Estate's initial production in 1982 began in a Monterey warehouse. Construction of the French Chateau began immediately. Today the winery is nestled on a 16 acre wine estate at the foot of the beautiful Carmel Valley mountains. All four of the winery's brands are distributed in over 46 U. S. States as well as Internationally.
