Up to 300 guests

Nestled amongst groves of olive trees and rows of grapevines in San Diego, California is Bernardo Winery, an elegant wedding venue. Founded in 1889 and operated by the same family for generations, this location is bursting with a rustic character and timeless ambiance. Producing wine onsite with San Diego grapes, using the old ways as well as employing new technology, this historic site also has shops, an Italian restaurant, coffee roaster and other entertainment amenities in addition to their winery.

On the beautiful Rosario’s Pavillion, couples can enjoy the cooled, Californian air under the olive trees with up to 240 guests.

Those seeking an interior location for hosting an ensemble of 50 or fewer guests can take advantage of the rustic Barrel Room, which is over 130 years old. Elsewhere, couples can exchange vows under a romantic arch or large wooden gazebo. This winery is suitable for engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners as well.

    Rustic + Dreamy Wedding Venue

    Such a beautiful spot for a wedding! I'm the owner of Tayler Ashley Photography and I had the pleasure of shooting here. The staff is wonderful and the location is perfect. Beautiful vineyards and a super private spot for ceremony + reception. The barn is amazing!

    A wonderful staff and location for a wedding

    As with many couples in 2021 we were trying to figure out where to have our wedding after being engaged for over a year. We visited Bernardo Winery in April 2021 and immediately fell in love with Uncle Vito's Park. We loved how open the area was and that there were grape vines nearby. The winery itself is such a unique place and we loved that it has a rustic charm and history that fit us perfectly. We signed right away and Terry and her team were great to work with. We live in the Bay Area so planning a wedding in another city can be stressful, but Terry made things quite easy. She was responsive and helpful with great suggestions. We did meet her in person a few times when we visited San Diego and she always gave us her full attention and time. It was helpful that they have a preferred vendor list for food and DJ and other services. It just makes choosing vendors easier because they have done weddings at the winery before and they all have worked together. Our DJ, officiant, and Terry have done many weddings together so that worked in our favor. We even had our rehearsal lunch at the winery and Jason and the restaurant staff were awesome! They made sure the food was ready on time and everything was set up before we arrived. Everything flowed so smoothly the day of our wedding and it was the most perfect day that we'll never forget. We truly felt the vision we had set out to have for our wedding was fulfilled with having it at Bernardo Winery. We look forward to going back to visit a lot more to just enjoy the winery. Choosing the right vendors is key to having a great wedding and we couldn't have been happier with Bernardo Winery and the staff. Just great people that work hard!

    Highly recommend - we absolutely LOVE Bernardo Winery!

    Bernardo Winery was the perfect venue for my husband and I! The moment we stepped on the property we knew we wanted to have our wedding there. The Rosario Pavillon is gorgeous with its rustic outdoor charm and was the perfect size for our ~130 guest wedding. Terry was amazing helping us get everything set for our big day and ensured everything went smoothly and on schedule the day of! Bernardo Winery knows how to put on an unforgettable wedding, and we look forward to go back for date nights at their tasting room + restaurant to remember our amazing day - highly recommend!

    Bernardo Winery's reply:

    Ericka,
    I am so happy that your wedding was everything you hoped for. It was my honor and delight to be a part of it! When you and Russ come in for a date night stop in and say hi!!!!
    Thank you again and Happy New Year!!
