The Bernardus Winery tasting room, which is where you can taste the winery’s award-winning chardonnays, sauvignon blancs and pinot noirs, is located in the heart of Carmel Valley. The tasting room is located at 5 West Carmel Valley Road, in the center of a business district that’s dotted with other tasting rooms devoted to Central Coast wineries. However, the exclusive Bernardus Winery where the wines are made is in a more remote area set in the hills of Carmel Valley. Bernardus Winery is not open to the public, except for one day a year when wine club members are invited for a harvest luncheon. If you’re interested in attending a tasting, call the winery at 831-298-8014. You’ll also find the wines on the menu at Bernardus Lodge’s Marinus restaurant and Wickets Bistro.
