Just so people know: this is only a winery, with No Food and No Food Service.

It is Not a Restaurant.

If you want Food, eat somewhere else, or pack and bring your own.

It's simply a Wine Tasting experience out doors.

Great location for a relaxing afternoon. Definitely make a reservation so you can guarantee a table. They allow outside food - amazing. they have a water station available but recommend brining your own or at least a bottle to not have to get up and down. The grounds are dirt and gravel so wear shoes accordingly.

One of the best wineries I have been to, not just in the San Diego region, but anywhere. They are taking COVID precautions and physical distancing of the tables is perfect with views of the olive orchard.

The wines are fabulous. I like my whites dry, so I did not find one to my liking, however the reds were absolutely incredible, the blends are fabulous.

We met the owner Lynn and she has done so much to help animal rescue, both in the portion of your sales that are donated as well as taking in horses, dogs and a pot belly pig. The animals are off limits however, I wish they would do a tour once a day that people could walk the property with a guide and meet the animals.

Great winery, hands down.

Very peaceful scenery. During covid they are not doing wine tastings. You can only buy per glass or bottle from a selection. Really cute seating area and the property has some dogs that roam around that are very friendly and mostly just mind their own business. The dogs are definitely a plus. They have horses but guests aren’t allowed in that area. Very nice employees. Definitely want to go back with the vineyard is more full with vines.

I understand that with Covid we cannot have wine “tastings” BUT it would be nice to be able to sample a few of your different wines. This could be done like they do in breweries: a little tray with 4 small glasses, each containing 2-4 ounces of a different wine. As it is, we have to purchase a full glass. We can only taste ONE of your wines. If we tried another we might not be able to drive home and for some of us, THAT is a considerable distance. This makes the winery no different from a bar with outdoor seating. As for the “food” the cheese was hard and not terribly tasty. Really, I don’t mean to be harsh but we drove a LONG way for a special occasion and we were a bit disappointed. Please consider a wine tasting tray. Sadly, I cannot recommend Domaine Artifact at this time. People are nice, although no one helped us when we wanted to purchase a bottle of wine.

Beautiful day to sit out on the wrap around deck and enjoy the valley view and delicious wine. Just a 40 minute drive from the coast , we really feel like we have taken a trip to some far away place with a change of scenery. Good to get out !

A wonderful setting for weekend wine, great food truck, and entertainment. The team did a great job of creating a special atmosphere while maintaining social distance. And of course the wine is excellent too. We came home with a case.

The servers were very kind and helpful. They welcomed us as we were walking up to order our tastings. The wine was okay, nothing to write home about and the tasting selection was limited. Only four types were offered. The staff there was willing to help get us a fan because there was no breeze and it was a very hot afternoon. They do not offer food and I noticed that other groups brought their own. Wish I had known this before arrival but it was fine. Nice setting and quiet and peaceful.

I was not able to move forward without rating food, however we did not eat here. That being said, I'm sure any thing they serve would be wonderful. This is my favorite local winery. The wines are delicious, the staff always so helpful and friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming, you feel as though you are in the backyard of a good friend. I recommend this winery to everyone I can.

We were looking for a place to enjoy outside without people too close as everything is reopening, and this was exactly that. Beautiful, quiet, people well spaced out, staff taking definite measures for our safety and theirs. Will definitely go back. Also, they welcome dogs, another bonus
