Open: Year Round

"The word Leoness, meaning ""village of dreams,"" is the inspiration behind our lifelong quest to create world class wines from the finest vineyards in the Temecula Valley. Nestled in the rolling hills and vineyards of Temecula's wine country, Leoness Cellars offers a warm, enchanting setting where visitors can enjoy great wines, spectacular views, and wonderful times with family and friends.

Leoness Cellars was founded in 2003 by Mike Rennie and Gary Winder, who together have over fifty years of agriculture and grape-growing experience in the Temecula Valley. Their combined experience has lead to a true understanding of growing wine grapes of the highest quality, grapes which are concentrated, balanced, and ripe, ultimately producing wines of incredible depth and flavor.

Among the wines produced at Leoness Cellars are Viognier, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, White Merlot, Muscat Canelli, and Cinsault Port, as well as small lots of other specially selected varietals. Each of our wines is carefully crafted to preserve the subtle flavors and nuances of the varietal. Our red wines, along with our Chardonnay, are aged for an extended period of time in a combination of small French and American oak barrels, adding softness and complexity to the wines, while our white wines are fermented slowly at cool temperatures, helping the wines to retain the fresh fruit flavors of the grape."

My girlfriend who is a member brought me here while my boyfriend plays golf. Beautiful scenery of the vineyards & city. Excellent service, great wine tasting & appetizers. Perfect venue for an intimate wedding.

Always a relaxing get away. The members patio is a nice way to have a tasting of wine and dine on a cheese board.

I loved J.P's customer service. She was great in helping us sample. She was very attentive to every person in our party.

Fantastic winery with a plethora of great wines. The whites were a little grapey and I don't dig that. However the Meritage and the Cabernets would pair amazingly with a thick steak. Take your time, enjoy the differences. It's a younger winery but they are definitely hitting their stride.

Very romantic atmosphere. I enjoyed looking over the vineyards for a laid back afternoon with pretty good wine. Beautiful place.
