The first winery stop I made this past weekend was to Leoness Cellars.
In terms of exterior and interior this was my favorite stop. Grab a taste at their bar, stop for some food in their restaurant, or hang out on the patio with panoramic views of Temecula vineyards and their cottage style property.
A couple of my favorite wines from my stop here:
2017 Mélange de Blanc with stone fruit, grapefruit and tea leave notes.
66% Merlot and 100% a wine I could drink every night with absolutely anything
2016 CS Zinfandel
Heavy on the sweet black fruit, balanced by clove and black licorice notes. I actually preferred this Zin to their higher end one.
Pair the experience of visiting their property with my Island in the Sun Playlist on Spotify.
