Bernardo Winery is one of San Diego's best kept secrets. Love the wine, live music, and friendly staff. I've been here at least 5+ times on Sunday's and only a couple of times I've had off service. The crowd is always a good mix of people truly enjoying their themselves and my friends and I always have a great time here. Good food, wine, music, and staff
The Christmas market and event is very cute! There are great shops and stands to visit. The only difficult part is parking, we ended up parking on the street, but they also have a lot, just don't miss the turn in!
The winery is such a beautiful space to be in. There is a wide variety of shops on the ground, but it also serves as an artist colony. Pop in for a sampling at the tasting room. And if you get the opportunity to do a cellar dinner, please sign up. It's a stunning and beautiful evening.
Great place to drink wine and walk around. Shops are great also. Beautiful scenery.
Best wine I've had are the bergundy and their rose. Sooo good👌👍
