The Berry phase of mixed states, here neutrino oscillations, is calculated in an accelerating and rotating reference frame. It turns out to depend on the vacuum mixing angle, the mass-squared difference and on the coupling between the momentum of the neutrino and the spinorial connection. Berry's phase for solar neutrinos and its geometrical aspects are also discussed.
