Welcome to Bernardo Winery
Located 25 miles north of downtown San Diego, in the quiet town of Rancho Bernardo, lies one of the best-kept secrets in the county, and a slice of San Diego history.
We have a tasting room, village of unique shops, restaurant, coffee house, beautiful gardens and plenty of open space to enjoy. Family owned for three generations, the Rizzo family still produces wines at the Bernardo Winery using San Diego grapes. The winery has transitioned over the years from the early production and growing style established in San Diego by the missionaries to family heritage roots, producing Italian varietals as well as Spanish and French varietals. Our wines are dry climate style wines well suited for the San Diego Terrior.
We look forward to you visiting Bernardo Winery!

These health and safety protocols for reopening winery tasting rooms are based on established governmental health and safety guidance (CDC, OSHA, FDA, and CDPH).
We would like to make you, our guest, feel comfortable in knowing rigorous health and safety measures have been implemented for your safely and the safety of our staff.
Facial coverings and social distancing are required when not seated at your table and while on the winery grounds.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARRIVE FOR YOUR RESERVATION:
We're doing things a little different right now, but we think you'll enjoy our socially distanced tables throughout the courtyard and the safe way we're doing wine and food:
Check in at the tasting room at your scheduled reservation time. There, you can order your wine and food. You can choose a table anywhere in the courtyard, on one of our patios, or on the grassy area. Your food will be brought to your table by a server. Feel free to visit the village shops while you're here, just be sure to have your facial covering with you.
We hope to see you soon at the winery!
