One of the newer wineries in
Julian is run by Jim Jenkins, a recently retired San Diego pediatrician.
Jenkins has long been known in home winemaking circles for his
award-winning white wines, so it was little surprise when he jumped over
the fence, so to speak, and began planting vines.
It's an interesting
experiment. These are some of the highest vineyards in the state, at
4,200 feet, and they endure some of the coldest winters. Jenkins hasn't
limited himself to grapes. You won't want to miss his beautifully
crafted apple wine, Dolcezza, made from his 10 acres of mixed-variety
available for a mere $6.00 and you get to keep the wine glass.,Vin Gris de Syrah, Syrah, merlot, and our popular apple wine & apple port are also

was my 3rd or 4th trip to the winery and definitely the best
one yet. They set me and my friends up outside and poured our wines
while we were surrounded by the apple orchard. The owners are so nice
and their wines are pretty good. This was definitely one of the
highlights of our weekend trip in Julian.

We stopped here after
Menghini & had ourselves a wonderful tasting. Our hostess knew her
stuff & was very nice.And I loved all their wine, the Dolcezza is
the Apple Wine & so tasty, not too sweet. The Sauvignon was a
little sweet but she mentioned why it was so sweet but they did turn it
into a wonderful desert wine.
$5 for five tastes & you get to keep the glass, so very worth
it also as the pours were nice & big.
