Every weekend my girl and I look for new wineries to enjoy. We came across this cute little winery. The parking lot was tiny and there were a lot of vintage tractors all around. Walking inside, you are greeted with a couple tables and a counter. The lady at the counter was super nice. We got a tasting. We grabbed our glasses and went out back. The venue was super nice and quiet. This place is a must if you are looking for a new place to relax.

Such a cute place! They have some good wine, generous pours, and lovely grounds. The person serving the wine was super nice and had great customer service. We will be back as the wine was good and the drive was lovely! Thank you!

Excellent service We were recommended to go to Mrs. Florence Boeli. She made getting our profit stress free and made what we thought would be impossible, possible!! Mrs. Florence Boeli was truly amazing and gave us so much further advice- she went above and beyond and now we’re making our second withdrawal! We were able to earn $14,200 within a weeks due to her efficiently and effective trading techniques. Thank so much Florence! I recommend her to anyone interested in earning from Forex/Stock & crypto trading she's indeed a Guru expert trader DM WhatsApp +1 (337) 603-0583 Email: [email protected]

LOVE Menghini and those who work here. We always make a point to pop in anytime we're in the area and I've even made trips to julian just to come here and enjoy how beautiful it is. The wine is wonderful and the location is breath taking. I love that I can bring my dog and let him roam. It's quaint and very relaxing. I will continue to bring my business as well as bringing friends and family to the winery. Thanks for being awesome hosts.

Star Fest at Menghini Winery my first time with some friends! We've wanted to come for a couple of years now and finally had the opportunity. The location is not too far from the town of Julian. The turn could be quickly missed if you are not paying attention to your GPS. The last mile before you reach the winery is beautiful but also narrow with some tight turns so pay attention. Also, on my way out in the morning hours I came upon a deer so watch for that too. Menghini Winery opened up their property to the SDAA for the Starfest, an annual event. The winery is open (winery hours) during this event. What a warm and cozy place to get your tasting or a glass of wine. The gals at the register assisting with the pour were very helpful and shared a few laughs. The room offers some indoor seating. Towards the back of the building is the entrance to the patio that offer a few seatings. But, not too far there is a gazebo and grass area with plenty of seating. Some natural shade is provided by the beautiful trees. We were informed that they do receive grapes from other areas, they have grow some of their own and even have some grapes grown in a neighbors property. It's nice when we can work something out together. I took advantage of the tasting for $10. I occasionally drink wine but don't know a lot about wine. It was nice that while drinking one of the gals shared some informative info about wine. She also shared info on the property. I love sweet wine so my favorite was the Julian Gold. Thank You Menghini Winery for holding the Starfest here. It seemed to be a hit! The first night we camped here it was a quiet night, some campers. The 2nd day/night campers/people started showing up. The telescopes spread throughout the designated area was amazing. One of the set ups even had a screen that projected the image seen through the large telescope. Many of the telescopes were stationed to view Saturn. Wow, that is always amazing to see through the scope. I would love to return here during the fall, but anytime for some Julian Gold. Until next time Menghini Winery.


It was a nice drive. I liked the wine tasting experience, non expensive and fun. I highly recommend the Julian Gold if you like your wine on the sweeter end. Beautiful groves and everyone there is really friendly!

Lovely sitting area outside and in, but in this warm day outside was perfect with plenty of chairs, shade and an awesome breeze. Plenty of options to choose from and knowledgeable staff to explain wine making processes. Parking is free and least in this summer day late in the day.

Folks. You have got to come up here and enjoy some great wine. Sit back and enjoy the beautiful countryside this Winery has to offer. You will feel like family here and have a chance to decompress in a relaxing atmosphere.

Bree was phenomenal. We came Saturday with friends and went back today with my inlaws. Absolutely amazing experience. Bree helped us both days with tons of knowledge and was so friendly... I've told many people already they need to come check it out. Hubby's fav was the sangria and mine would be a tie between sangria and dessert wine! Highly recommend over any other winery nearby!!!!

I just love this place. Reminds me of something you would find in France. The staff is wonderful. Bree is your one. Toni and Michael are the owners. If you like classic cars grab Mike. He has quite a few. The wine is super and a tasting is 10.00! Bargain. My preference is the Merlot and the Sauvignon Blanc. Give this place a shot. LOTS of room for a beautiful picnic!

My husband and I had such a great visit at Menghini Winery. From the drive in to the winery, to the service we received once we entered, to the tasting was all so much more than we expected! Opening a bottle of the Chardonnay now, and we will never forget our day at this old time Julian winery gem. Thank you, Menghini staff (and neighbor John). You made my birthday trip! * HIGHLY recommend this winery as a stop to your next Julian trip.


The winery location just two miles from Julian is a visual treat. The folks that run it are really friendly, know what they are doing and produce excellent wine. I just opened the Merlot that I purchased 4 weeks ago. It is so good. I could taste the soil of Julian. It wad awesome.

Such a great experience! Glad we stopped by a couple weeks ago. Just opened our bottle of Chardonnay and it's amazing!

Beautiful grounds. Good wine and great live music on weekends. Occasional cheese making classes. Get's busy. Limited outside seating. Bring a picnic lunch.
