Leoness Cellars

It's wine time again! This time we've ventured out to the lesser travelled wineries on DePortola Road. I have heard such great things about Leoness Cellars but being off the main road we never visit. Luckily, my gal friends were up for the adventure of trying a new-to-us winery.

Leoness Cellars is beautiful. The service is amazing. The thing about Temecula wineries is they are a tourist attraction and get pretty busy. For the locals, it's annoying. Finding a winery where you can stand at the bar and chat it up with your sommelier (I had to look that word up) is a treat. 

There are a couple things I look for when I'm wine tasting. First, a good chardonnay or cabernet sauvignon and 2) good food. I found them both!

The views are important too. In the spring, the vines are brown and preparing to bloom. Not the most picturesque landscape. The green vines are just around the corner. Little buds are starting to sprout. I am sad we will miss another season of color changes in Temecula.


  1. What a beautiful place! Wow!

  2. Gorgeous! I don't like wine, but I'd go just for the scenery. And the food looks good too.
