Julian Things to Do: 18 reviews and 46 photos
You wanted to get away from the big cities and now you have arrived in Julian, California, a intimate rural town in the mountains located between San Diego and Palm Springs. Snow in the winter and crisp air in the summer, the town-folk are laid back and ready to greet the tourists that flock to the area on the weekends. It does make for a great weekend getaway. Better yet is a weekday visit to see the town in the normal slow paced, friendly neighborly fashion. It is a great apple growing area and the apple is featured in Julian.
One of the things you maybe didn't know is that besides apple cider available in Julian, this small rural town has a couple of wineries near town and a wine tasting room in town. The in town tasting is at the Witchcreek Winery Tasting Room and the two wineries a couple of miles down the road are J. Jenkins Winery and Menghini Winery, located on Julian Orchards Drive. A beautiful rural drive with scenic viewpoints. Nearby is the Wynola Farms Marketplace with wine tasting rooms as well as boutiques and apple products.
Click on the names of the wineries, showcased in the color "Blue", for their websites that will give you directions and hours of operations. Remember to drink responsibly and if possible have a designated driver. That way you can taste as much as you like and even have a bottle of wine without breaking the law and becoming or having someone else become a road casualty statistic. This area may be rural but the roads do curve and with distractions like beautiful scenery, animals in pastures, apple groves and grape vines, a clear mind is needed to enjoy the drive.
