Julian Wine Tours

Enjoy the beautiful Julian backcountry and sample fine-crafted local wines with San Diego County’s first wine-tasting tour! Our wine-tasting tours are based out of the historic Gold Rush town of Julian, California. Founded in 1869 by an unlikely citizenry of ex-Confederate soldiers and freed slaves, Julian retains all its picturesque charm, shops and interesting residents today. No Walmart here!

Our public and private wine tours are offered seasonally in Julian. The snow and cold aren’t a good fit for our open-air vehicles; that’s why we run these tours from late May through November.

The public wine tours are $125 per person and run on Saturdays late May–November with demand.

They include:

  • Exceptional barbecue of tri-tip & salmon (vegetarian fare available upon request)
  • Wine tastings at 3 or 4 wineries & 1 hard cider tasting
  • Pick-up & drop-off from Julian lodging
  • Discounts on all wine purchases
  • California Overland souvenir wine glass

Want a more intimate experience? Book a private wine tour for two in our Jeep and enjoy a picnic lunch, wine tastings at 3 or 4 wineries, 1 hard cider tasting, discounts on bottle purchases, souvenir wine glasses and complimentary transportation. The total price for the private wine tour for two is $375. Available most days (except Saturdays when the group wine tours are offered).
