Awesome pizza!

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... read 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.

The winery is very scenic on a hilltop overlooking the Escondido Valley. We found all of the wines to be VERY dry and some with an acidic finish. However, there were other people there that liked the wine. So this is definitely one for those who like a dry to acidic finish. We did not try the food but the... More

The day immediately after thanks giving warranted a drive out and we selected this venue for its pizza and wine, for lunch. In our travels we bumped into other friends so we became 6 for lunch. The Trinity award winning wines was reasonable and the pizza's were rather good. The hilltop views and scenery are wonderful and no wonder people... More

We visited the Cordiano winery on our recent trip to Escondido. The winery is located high on a hill overlooking the Escondido Valley and the views were great. However, we ordered the pizza and it was very bland, no spices at all. There was no flavor and we had to add salt and pepper just to make it edible. If... More

Have been here many times for celebrations with family and friends and the experience is always worthwhile. Service always great. Views are spectacular and going at sunset is always a treat for the senses. A great way to feel like you are in Italy without paying for the airfare! Wines, salads and great pizza comprise the menu. Great place for... More

Visited the Cordiano Winery and was very surprised. It is high on a hill overlooking the valleys of Escondido and the view is beautiful. They do have a limited men that features hand tossed pizzas, bread sticks, salads and a variety of deserts. Their wine is very nice ( I had a red and white) an not expensive. If you... More

Driving up a winding road for 5 miles reveals gorgeous views of the San Pasqual valley from Cordiano Winery. We had been advised that the wine was just so-so but the pizza was great. Not being wine experts we enjoyed their cabernet and the pizza (only thing on the menu) was very good. We loved the fact that the winery... More
