Our experience there was just perfect, and we would go back anytime. Despite it being very warm (107 degrees) and during times of COVID-19, Fortino staff made us very comfortable and safe. Gino, Kraig, and the other staff were fantastic in supporting that effort. The food was fresh, delicious, and very reasonably priced. The wine flights were awesome as well. I highly recommend a visit!

We were a group of 5 and couldn’t have been more pleased spending a Sunday afternoon at Fortino Winery. The wine is exceptional and the Fruity Wine Floats were a special treat! The antipasto platter was a hit with our group and the pizza’s were very tasty. Had a great time!

The scenery was beautiful and the service and food were great. The menu selections were delicious and the portions were substantial. Unfortunately the table closest to us (on the middle of the cement) kept yelling back and forth to a table about 20-30 feet away from them (on the grass). Fortunately it didn’t last for long. :) The only piece I would have liked to see added would have been some soft music. It was a lovely day and we will be doing it again! Thank you!

Thank you for all wearing masks while working all day. The main suggestion I have is for the friendly servers to take a few steps back if we start conversing. I try to put on my mask also when talking to the servers. i don't want things to close down again, and Fortino is a prime example of a safe place to go these day. I've been to 2 other winerys that serve food, and you are the best. One winery has good safety practices, and the other had people walking right by you without masks and the owners didn't do much about it. We won't go back to that one again! Thank you, you are helping us through this tough time.

This was our first winery experience for my husband & I since the pandemic began. It was so wonderful to sit at a table on the grass in the shade and enjoy some wine, along with Fortino’s delicious antipasto and flatbread. The staff members who checked us in and served us were very hospitable and happy to help us. The tables were set at very safely distances and all staff wore their masks. We felt comfortable and had no concerns about possibly contracting the virus there.

The social distancing parameters in place provide for a very safe outdoor experience. Food was limited but what we ordered was more than enough variety. The tomatoes in caprese salad were exceptional considering the early season for tomato harvest. Only downside was so bloody hot even at the nice shaded corner. Winery couldn't control that but if they were at capacity, I would pity the poor people sitting under the netting when temps are high and sun is hot...unless umbrellas are provided in addition. Overall a fantastic visit.
