SPARKLING

ORO DI BERNARDO ~ $25 bottle, $10 glass
California sparkling wine with notes of peaches and honey. Dry to off-dry character.

WHITE & DRY ROSADO

2016 CHABLIS ~ $24 bottle, $10 glass
Blended white made in the Ol’ Italian style. Soft, light, semi-dry white wine. A blend of French Colombard and Chenin Blanc.

2018 VIOGNIER San Diego County $30 bottle, $13 glass
A slight deviation from the classic Rhone viognier, we decided to run this fruity, acidic white grape as a more refreshing, sharp and green-fruit-forward wine instead, teeming with satisfying tartness and similar to a new-world sauvignon blanc. Notes of green apple, sweet summer lemonade and pineapple guava

2019 VIOGNIER San Diego County $30 bottle, $13 glass
A slight difference in attention to detail in the vineyard can go a long way in the final bottle and this viognier is a shining example of that. With slightly more foliage cover and picking a little later, the fruit have given us some delicious flavors of guava, green banana, white peach, and almond. Wonderfully refreshing and great with light cheeses.

2016 CHARDONNAY $25 bottle, $10 glass
A balanced chardonnay that pairs perfectly with the warm San Diego sun. Fruity yet savoury, lightly buttery yet crisp. Citrus and hints of oak throughout. 

2019 PRIMAVERA  ROSADO San Diego County ~ Estate Vineyards $28 bottle, $11 glass
The gentlest, most refreshing rosado produced at Bernardo with notes of watermelon, strawberry and lime. A light blend of Syrah and Barbera makes this rosado balanced and drinkable in the summer sun.

 

RED

2019 GRENACHE Rupe Vineyard  San Diego County *On Tap* $50 ½ gallon growler, $30 carafe, $12 glass
Light, fruit forward red wine similar to some of the best light Garnacha in the South of Spain. Delicious maraschino cherry with refreshing soft tannin.

2016 BURGUNDY ~ $24 bottle, $10 glass
Our Barbera and Mourvedre classic fruity red blend. A traditional red Italian table wine, our ‘Burgundy’ has been produced at Bernardo Winery since before prohibition age and named after this prestigious French region simply out of Old-California winemaking tradition.

2016 MERLOT California  $26 bottle, $11 glass
Robust Merlot reveals a deep purple color. Shows aromas of blackberry and spice with ripe, jam flavors of plum and black currant

2017 SYRAH Rancho Vino Vineyards Ramona Valley $36 bottle, $14 glass
From a high-quality vineyard comes a high-quality wine. Firm tannins and a delicious rounded story make this wine a great afternoon happy hour wine that will still stand up to rich cheeses. Enjoy young or let age 2 to 5 years for a deep acid-centric medium bodied experience.

2017 FRATELLI ESTATE Estate Vineyards San Diego County $36 bottle, $14 glass
Loaded with complex acid structure and savouriness, this blend from the granite-rich soils of our estate vineyards is in a long line of wine made from the grapes grown in this area. Notes of cooked blackberry, leather, tobacco, black pepper, black olive.

2017 ZINFANDEL faber vineyards San Diego County $36 bottle, $14 glass
Planted in this valley over 120 years ago, Zinfandel is a very versatile grape that grows well in our SoCal climate. Made in a more primitivo-style, this zin has notes of licorice, and plum on the nose with flavors of brown sugar, toasted oak and raisins.

 

SWEET

2018 VINCENZO ROSADO San Diego County $28 bottle, $10 glass
A classic off-dry blush rosado reminiscent of yesteryears classic Bernardo Winery vin rose. Notes of strawberry, rhubarb, rose petal and honey.

2018 VINCENZO BIANCO
San Diego County  65% Chardonnay, 25% Viognier, 10% Sauvignon Blanc
Barrel-aged and fermented, light skin contact, malolactic fermentation: all the great things that go into a very well-rounded and balanced vintage white wine. All San Diego County fruit, this wine is reminiscent of the mid-90s style Carneros chardonnay with notes of banana, toasted oak, buttered fresh bread, vanilla and sesame.      $75

2017 GRENACHE
San Diego County  - rupe vineyard – Escondido
Super fruity with light oak and classic maraschino cherry finish. Grenache grows really well in our microclimate here in north County San Diego and this wine is an example of how soft tannin, fruit and a balanced approach can be achieved thousands of miles away from this grape’s origin.  $75

2016 AMANTI
San Diego County 
kotsios vineyard – escondido – cabernet franc
means vineyard – valley center – Sangiovese

2014 SYRAH
San Diego County  bernardo winery estate vineyard – “la vista” - 85% syrah/15% petite sirah
A limited hand-bottled release of the small, herbaceous crop we get from our estate syrah vineyard. Planted in decomposed granite and sandy loam soil on its own roots, this syrah embodies its terrior: savouriness, volcanic rock and salts. Akin to coastal sicilian reds like Nero di Avola with primary notes of boysenberry, cassis, prune, and tertiary notes of steeped tea leaves and toasted oak.          $75

2016 CABERNET FRANC
San Diego County - means vineyard – valley center – cabernet franc - 90% cabernet franc/10% syrah
This light, fruity, juicy Cab Franc is a perfect example of a warmer-climate red. Refreshing and floral on the nose with a satisfyingly full body on the palette. Notes of green pepper, black fig compote, maraschino cherry. 12 months on American medium-toast barrel.    $75
