After living in San Diego for 3 years, I would frequent Temecula for wine tasting. This was prior to my true love for wine developed but I learned quickly what I liked or didn’t in that area. One of my favorites was Leoness Cellars even back when they were Leonesse! A friend and I got to experience their signature tasting when I was gifted this wine experience!
We started off with a private tasting of the estate wines paired with chocolate and cheese.
We moved on to a tour of the vineyard, production area and then to the barrel room to continue tasting
It was a beautiful fall day, mid harvest
The rolling hills of the Temecula valley and the vines of Leoness
Beautiful cluster still on the vine
You can see the small groupings of the grapes

Whole clusters holding on strong!
Sun hitting the grapes just the right way
The beautiful barrels
The Barrel Room is a great location for member only tasting on weekends or private events
