Based in Carmel, California, Folktale Winery, the home of Golden, is located just 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. We think it’s one of the most beautiful places on earth, and we are inspired every day to be able to make wines here. As a growing region, Monterey County is ideally suited to cool climate varieties, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The warm, dry summer days are cooled each afternoon by the Pacific Ocean breeze and fog. This creates an extended growing season, allowing the grapes to develop layers of complexity and flavor. The rocky, volcanic soils impart great mineral notes and acidity.
