Great views, however wine is average at best and pizza is nothing worth taking home. An nice environment but not sure it is worth the trip

This is my second trip to Cordiano Winery. The winding road leads up to the winery atop of a mountaintop. There are forever views from dining tables outside where you can order their wine at reasonable prices along with great homemade pizzas. Great place to...More

Wow! Generally, I'm not a fan of Escondido at all, I consider it the armpit of San Diego County... But my recent visit to Cordiano Winery may have changed that. Make a reservation for one of the outdoor tables, the panoramic view from this mountain...More

Our niece and her fiance had their wedding here at Cordiano Winery and we all had a wonderful time. Great view for the sunset, absolutely beautiful view. Good wine. Great place for a wedding.

Not worth the drive from San Diego. Would rather taste wine and eat in Little Italy. No service, you serve yourself everything and the staff is rude and out of sync with wine tasting eticate around the US, and world. Not recommending to anyone, ever.

Great pizzas and bread sticks. Excellent wine selections, estate and other California varieties. Friendly and attentive staff. Wonderfully gregarious owner. Greeted our party with a huge smile, great stories and inviting personality. Our chauffeur was Paris from San Diego Wine & Spirits Tour!

Assuming you have a car, going east will take you to Julian, a quaint little village about 1200 meters elevation. Closer to the northwest is Fallbrook. There is a park called 'Live Oak' that has a few hiking trails. The... More
