This beautiful winery fills up quickly, so go early. They make a small variety of pizzas. Get a salad with a secret dressing, a bottle of wine, sit back and enjoy the view. It's worth a trip down Highland Valley road

My husband and I stopped by this lovely winery for Sunday lunch today. The view is incredible but so is the family who runs it. All the employees, from the greeters, bar tenders, food servers and bus boys, are so happy to see you and treat you with respect and consideration. Sample a wine before ordering a glass. The sample... More

I had no idea what was literally 5 minutes away from my home. Cordiano's Winery was such a pleasant surprise!!! Delicious food. Friendly and attentive service. Wonderful Sangria and the views, sensational! This little place is great for a Friday afternoon escape with friends or for a joyous celebration with a large group. Love!!!!❤️

This place was a bit of a challenge to get to, with lots of twists, turns, and drives down roads that had me questioning the expertise of my GPS. But it was all correct, and once we found Cordiano, we were rewarded with a very cool space with friendly staff and excellent food and wine. They make delicious pizzas! The... More

Don't tell anyone as this place is tucked away but worth finding! Great views, tasty wines and interesting eats. Great, friendly staff. A good destination after a few hours at the Safari Park.

After doing some research, we wanted to come to Cordiano Winery as it sounded like a great place....It was closed the first two days we wanted to go--one being Presidents Day? When we did make it--we found it very unorganized and confusing, no signage or directions, just take a seat and literally having to get up and get each one... More

We did the wine-tasting and the only wine that resonated with us was the Zin. A little young-tasting, but nice. The view and the pizza were the stars of the show! We had an oven-baked Margarita pizza, which was as good as any pizza I had in Italy. The sunset view was spectacular. Try to score a table by one... More

Gorgeous view across the valley from the patio. The wine was, at least by my taste, very shallow. I'm used to much more full bodied wines. Their pizza was fantastic and you can make you own. We added grilled zucchini for the first time and it was exceptional on the pizza. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. Go there... More

We stopped here after a day of wine-tasting in Ramona. The view over the valley is gorgeous. We heard their pizza was excellent, and it didn't disappoint. We ordered pizza, salad, and breadsticks, and all were very good. Pizza had a thin crust, was perfectly done, and came piping hot. The wine, however, was certainly not the best. It seemed... More

Have taken a few family and friends to this "little gem" in the San Pascual hills. Now others have enjoyed visiting this winery through word of mouth.
