WHO ARE WE?
Welcome to Brower Family Wines - a one stop shop for the wines of Monterey County and beyond. We produce a number of different wine brands, including Chateau Julien, Emerald Bay, and our newest premium brand, American Thread. Brower Family Wines also works diligently with producers from all over the world to import innovative and unique wine and spirits products. We aim to have a comprehensive portfolio for all of our valued customers - those who have been with us from the very beginning in Carmel Valley, to those who have just discovered our brands.
The Brower Family was a pioneer in establishing Monterey County as a premier grape growing and wine making region in California, with Château Julien being one of the first bonded wineries in the area, almost four decades ago. In the late 1970's, Bob and Patty Brower set out to fulfill their dream. Originally from the East Coast, they had a passion for wine and admired classic hospitality. They saw potential in a relatively undiscovered industry, then soon begun growing grapes and making wines Monterey County. In 1982, the Brower’s built their first Estate, Château Julien Wine Estate, which was located in Carmel Valley, California.
The Brower Family's thirty-five year history in Monterey County has carried on to a second generation, as their son Bobby Brower, Jr continues the winemaking journey with great passion and commitment towards perfection, quality and customer service. Bobby has placed great efforts to expand into additional wine varietal offerings as we now produce and represent a number of products, from home grown Monterey County wines to Italian bubbly!
To produce quality wines at an affordable prices, remain innovative with the wines we craft and continuing to increase our community involvement with locally owned organizations. Every wine the Brower Family produces is with one theme in mind: quality first. We have a passion for showcasing the true character of wine produced on the Central Coast, and bringing our customers the best that can be produced and found.
From our family to yours, Cheers!
