In 2015, a band of artists, craftspeople, and lovers of life brought their wandering imaginations and lofty aspirations to a magical piece of land in Carmel, California. They cultivated grapevines and gardens in the sunny valley to craft beautiful wines and experiences to delight the senses. They named this place Folktale Winery & Vineyards. Folktale was inspired by the idea that there is a story in every great bottle of wine. It is filled with the uniqueness of place, a year of sun and rain, and the art and craft of winemaking. The story is about the people, the guests, and the passion. This is a love story, and the best love stories never end.


They are committed to sustainable farming practices for all our wines. The five-acre vineyard at the winery is 100% organically farmed meticulously by hand. We installed owl boxes and raptor perches around the property to manage populations of pests, like ground squirrels and gophers, naturally. Our estate vineyards include over 300 acres in the Arroyo Seco AVA of Monterey County, just over the Santa Lucia Mountains to the east.


Their winemaking team is led by David Baird, who has devoted years to perfecting his craft in the vineyards of California's Central Coast. At Folktale Winery, David & his team have embraced and applied old-world techniques such as whole cluster fermentation, lower sugar/higher acid grapes, and native fermentations. These techniques have resulted in a fresh and innovative approach to winemaking that sets Folktale Winery apart from others in the region.
