A Distinctive Tasting Experience

An Oasis in the Mountains
— Charlene Pulsonetti
Hidden among the rocky hills and rolling fields of Julian and the surrounding countryside are yet another surprise — award-winning wineries! Both locals and travelers from around the world are eager to take advantage of this
In Warner Springs, the North Mountain Wine Trail leads travelers on a tasting tour through four locations: Emerald Creek Winery, Hawk Watch Winery, Sierra Roble Winery & Vineyard and Shadow Mountain Vineyards & Winery. After tasting what these wineries have to offer, stop by the Warner Springs Ranch Resort for dinner and an evening in the mountains.
One of the best elements of visiting the greater Julian area is the fun in getting here.
Winding country roads not only offer a chance to view breathtaking scenery, but also an opportunity to understand
the “terroir” — the soil and climate — in which the vines grow. Just a few miles outside of Julian town center are a handful of wineries rich with exciting varietals and knowledgeable winemakers.
If you’re looking for a way to settle down after a long day of exploring all Julian has to offer, you’ll find tasting rooms, breweries and restaurants on and around Main Street that offer a variety of local wines, beers and more.
You never know whom you will share a drink with during a trip to Julian’s wine country — perhaps a local artist, a descendant of one of the original settlers, or even someone from the other side of the world.
One thing is certain — your experience will be one-of-a-kind!
