My fiancé and I had the pleasure of visiting the romantic Leonesse Cellars Winery. This is the best kept secret in Temecula, CA. that I refuse to keep a secret. The word Leonesse means Village of Dreams and could not be more fitting. This is the most beautiful winery in Temecula hands down and it is perfect for a romantic date, a proposal, and even a wedding! I have been to Temecula a few times and have never been to this winery. Now I see what I have missed out. Here is why Leonesse is so romantic and why you MUST go!
Leonesse’s tasting room is on top of a 20 acre hilltop vineyard in Temecula Wine Country. The views of the Palomar Mountains and vineyards are amazing. It is the perfect backdrop for a first date, first kiss, a marriage proposal, or a wedding!
It is Interesting
Leonesse offers a hosted wine tour. It is so fascinating! You will learn all about how wine is made while cuddling up next to your honey and sipping on wine. You will be escorted in to the exclusive members only wine tasting room which has oak barrels all around the room. It is dim and lit with chandeliers and is oh so romantic. They rent out the space for special events so keep that in mind. Next, you get to walk up in to the vineyard which is a very neat experience if you have not done that before.
*If you are on a first date, impress her by studying the wine making process. They ask you questions about it on the tour and if you get it right you get a free tasting!
It is Beautiful
The wine tasting room is gorgeous on the inside and out. They also have a VIP tasting area that looks like a very elegant old dining room. You literally feel like you are sitting down at someone’s dinner table.
The Wine is Amazing
Their wine is very, very good and they have an amazing Port wine! Leonesse grows their own fruit right there in the vineyard and can taste the difference. Don’t forget to sign up for their Wine Club for extra special privileges and great wine.
The staff really goes out of their way to give you a great experience. Our tour guide was very friendly and was happy to take our pictures throughout the tour.
