The Toast of San Diego


Winemaking Returns to the

Escondido Vineyard District!


BK Cellars invites you to our air conditioned crystal chandelier tasting lounge in our working winery in Escondido, California in the historic Vineyard District.

Upcoming Hours of Bottles To-Go

Saturday, July 11: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Update on Our Plans for Reopening:

We've received many calls and e-mails asking if we are open for tasting.

In accordance with the newest County of San Diego Health Order effective July 7, 2020, we are unable to offer on-site wine consumption. 

The current County Health Order coupled with the State's Alcoholic Beverage Control laws only allow for consumption outdoors at wineries if wine and food are simultaneously purchased under a catering arrangement. Otherwise, in order to serve wine outdoors without food, we need to apply for a new State Alcoholic Beverage Control winery permit outlining our proposed outdoor tasting area. Neither arrangement is practical.


Even if we could re-open, given the increase in infection rates of Covid-19, we can not in good conscience reopen at this time.

Consequently, we will continue to offer to-go bottle sales. 

Thank you for your support.
