The Winemaking

Ross Rizzo - Master Vintner    Matty Ward - Enologist

Bernardo Winery produces wines from locally sourced grapes that suit the San Diego Terroir. The century-old building that once was the tractor barn has been updated into a modern winemaking facility, located on the North side of the property. 

While our working winemaking facility isn't open to the public, guests can stroll through the historic antique winemaking facility of yesteryear, located in the winery courtyard. There you can see the old ways, using large scale redwood barrels that were built over 130 years ago.
