Wine Stop One

We chose this to see out of a multitude in the Escondido Valley with it being the oldest. With this being a lull in the tourist season, we walked in and was able to get a wine tasting without a reservation. The tasting came with an additional treat; the opportunity to sample some chocolates with our tasting from a chocolate shop just down the courtyard of this village setting. Salut!

Lovely spot, great food and shopping!

I live close to Bernardo Winery so it’s my fav local spot to stop in for wine and a little local shopping. With COVID you must make a reservation in order to taste wines or eat, but it’s worth the little bit of extra planning as the food is really yummy and the wines are consistently good. There’s a couple options for eating (tasting room has a pretty full menu and there’s a separate little pizza spot), as well as a coffee shop, candy store, home good store, leather works/purse shop and a little clothing boutique all right on site. Make a plan to visit!

Get some samples and have dinner.
Dec 2020
This is a fun time, I was told it dates back to 1889! Lots of cool decor and (mostly) friendly staff(you know who you are patio police dude!) The samples are nice, paired with chocolate. Good distancing protocols and nicely decorated for the holidays. The food is wonderful too.

Oldest winery in Southern California - 130yrs old

COVID requirements make the experience quite different. Tasting room requires a reservation. Food purchase is required and the restaurant does a great job. Seating is outdoors anywhere on their property. Small boutique shops on the property as well.

Interesting/ quaint/ not what I expected
Feb 2020
We wanted to take a tour of a vineyard and winery. We found this one. It is a clean, interesting place to wander around for an hour. They have some specialty shops and a few restaurants. Numerous antiques are found throughput the property.
We did not find any tours or even much of a vineyard. So... I would rate this as more of an area for a intimate dinner or maybe a wedding venue.

A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours
Feb 2020
Well worth the 30 minute drive from Mission Beach. Had lunch at the restaurant. Great homemade food and servings were plentiful. Our server Brian was excellent and very attentive. He even made certain we left with a special treat. We also did the wine tasting with the chocolate pairing, a great value for the price paid.
We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a winery in the San Diego area.

Delicious food and wine....in a beautiful setting. Lots of history ... and quaint shops to browse. It is off the beaten path, but worth a visit for sure.

Lots to do in the area!
Dec 2019 • Friends
So the winery was great...a small small selection of wines but good wines, but even better was it’s in a location that has a bunch of cute little local shops. Bought a ton of jewelry from Paul Fernandes at great prices!! Spent about an hour and a half there tasting wines and then walking around to shop (and you can take your wine).

Great winery!

What a neat place! We were in town for a wedding and it was a rainy day so we thought a wine tasting would be fun. And it was! We weren’t expecting all the neat little stores and the ambiance was quaint. Great place to visit if you are in the area.
