Julian is a popular getaway nestled in the mountains east of San Diego. With scenic roads, beautiful mountain views, wine, cider and beer tasting, many dining options, B&B’s, and of course, apple pie, its rustic charm provides a respite from the city life. If you blink, however, you might miss it, since Julian is a very small town.
Just outside of Julian lies the tiny town of Wynola where you will find our store, Eccentric Ape, featuring a wide selection of fragrance items, imports, and our own Eccentric Ape incense line. We are often told we have the coolest store in the county, but we think Wynola Farms is unique and offers many other exclusive options such as: Julian Hard Cider – a tasting room and outlet for a true hard cider made in America from real fruit, now in 4 varieties, Orfila Vineyards tasting room and store – offering a selection of fine California wines and complimentary items, The Daily Perk coffee and more, Kat’s Yarn and crafts, and multiple antique and gift shops filled with unique items.
On Sundays, there is even live music ( style will vary ), BBQ and special foods. Stop in and check it out.
Please Note: Eccentric Ape store is closed Monday & Tuesday. All other stores are usually closed Monday except for the coffee shop and Orfila.
Also, 3/11 – 3/31, buy any brass censer, iron cauldron, or ceramic bowl burner and receive 1/2 ounce of rare Maydi frankincense free with purchase.
(Please note: charcoal, matches, lighters, and butane must ship as ground parcels. No Alaska, HI, PR APO/FPO, territories, or foreign shipping allowed for these items.)
