BEST meal we had during our three day stay in Carmel. Lunch was excellent, perfect in every way. Loved the tranquil garden setting and that we were allowed to have our two well behaved dogs with us. Yes it was expensive, but the cuisine and setting made it very memorable and totally worthwhile. I highly recommend having lunch at Bernardus!

Went there in the afternoon and sat outside and chatted with a few locals. Tried their reds- The Marinus estate Bordeaux style red stood out the most.

We had my daughters wedding at Bernadus Resort and Spa. Everything was exceptional. Huge rooms with fireplaces.The service was the best you can get. They have a huge area for croquet, Bocce Ball and putting.The mountains in ihe background was great for pictures. A definite place to see.

We really enjoyed this wine tasting experience. We were able to take our wines outside to enjoy the patio area and beautiful sunshine. The wine samplings were excellent, and the staff was friendly and informative. Bernardus is one of the tasting rooms you must visit.

Owner Ben Pon, made excellent wines, we personally preferred the oaky Chardonny and the signature red 2010. Unfortunenately not all wines can be ordered in Europe

Not disability friendly. However, the wine is on par with what you might expect from the CA coast line. Stayed at the hotel. We hoped they would treat us as wine club members at least for the day since we booked 4 nights with them at more than $500 per night. Our second visit was the same, but we cannot... More

Arrived at the tasting room around 3 PM on a Monday and had the tasting room to ourselves. Very good service and knowledgeable tasting host. Wine was very good. Particularly enjoyed a Bourdeaux blend called Marinus.
