Me and my fiance just went by there for a tour to inquire about possibly having our wedding there and it is sooo beautiful! The lady was super helpful and honest and they took us the same day we called!! I have no problem getting ahold of her and they respond to all of my emails within 1 hour. This place is truly amazing and we look forward to having our wedding there in November of 2017.

We are absolutely thrilled that we decided to have our wedding at the Leoness Cellars. The venue is absolutely gorgeous! So many places and different backdrops to take pics: white gazebo, brown gazebo, tasting room, barrel room, and the wine yard. Staff is professional, warm, and courteous. And the best part is that we get to have the entire facility to ourselves for the evening! Just our wedding guests; no Leoness customers. It is so wonderful to go about without running into random people or waiting in line for the restroom etc. Leoness has really great wedding packages. Catering, tables/chairs/linens, china, serving staff, wine...all excellent! Mary McCabe, our wedding coordinator, was AMAZING!! I had sprained my ankle, trashed my cell, and totaled my car all within three weeks of the wedding. Mary took care of EVERYTHING!! She emailed me wedding and reception floor plans and detailed timelines well before the wedding. On the day of the wedding she was a force of nature!! She made sure my wedding party was comfortable and well fed. She made sure our guests felt welcomed and knew where to go. She made sure someone was there all evening to offer me water or anything else I may need. She made sure our DJ, photographers, and florists etc. had all that they needed. I had sent about 300 votive candles. By the time we entered the Barrel Room for reception the entire hall was glowing with candle lights!! She made sure everything flowed perfectly!!! At the end of the day, she even helped us pack up including the left over cupcakes. All in all the BEST DAY EVER!!!

My husband and I couldn't be more grateful to Leoness Cellars, events manager Laura Mitchell, and coordinator Mary McCabe for making our wedding day the best day possible!

We got engaged in July 2013 and quickly started searching for a venue in Temecula. We knew that we wanted to be married at a winery but we were also looking for a more private atmosphere. We had been to Leoness before and remembered the breathtaking views of their ceremony site. However, it wasn't until we met with Laura that we knew Leoness would be the perfect place for our wedding.

From first contact, Laura was professional, responsive, and attentive. When we met initially she gave us a tour of the property and explained in detail how the day of our wedding would flow from the ceremony, to the beautiful outdoor cocktail hour, and then down to the barrel room for an amazing reception. She assured us that her staff was experienced and that we would not need the added expense of a wedding planner because they work to take care of everything on the day of the event.

We are so glad we put our trust in Laura and Leoness. She and our day of coordinator, Mary, were in constant communication with us throughout our entire wedding planning process and met with us several times. They were responsive and helped to answer several questions via email and phone, which was important to us because we live in the San Diego area. They were so flexible when it came to accommodating requests and helping us to incorporate personal touches and decor to make our day special. Mary helped to coordinate our rehearsal and informed our bridal party about what to expect.

The day of our wedding was absolutely spectacular. The staff was completely attentive to our needs and the needs of our guests and the venue was set up and decorated to perfection. We received several compliments from our family and friends stating it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had ever been to. We truly had the best day.

We LOVED having our wedding at Leoness! We looked at almost every winery in Temecula and Leoness was by far our favorite! We loved the backdrop of the vines at the ceremony site! We definitely picked our venue by the look, but were disappointed at communication, etc. with the event coordinator in nailing down the contract and planning. Things were not always clear and there was little flexibility with the winery. Because you can only be onsite for a limited time, it made it much more difficult and rushed to not be able to have my bridesmaids arrive early and use the bridal suite to get ready. Because this was a destination wedding for us, all the girls had to get ready separately, which made everything rushed once we actually were able to arrive. Mary (our wedding coordinator from Leoness), who we communicated with closer to the wedding was awesome, and I wish communication with her had happened through all the planning. I think that would have made things less complicated. The day of the wedding staff were absolutely awesome! Again, we loved this site, but just be prepared there is no flexibility and very little made us feel Leoness wanted "us" there, but rather just the cash! But A+ as far as beauty! We can't wait to see our pictures!!!

We had received a wonderful thank you from this bride so I'm surprised and sad to hear this review. We had a Coordinator, who wasn't up to the task and relayed incorrect information to our brides, which caused a problem with a few weddings. This coordinator is no longer with us and Mary is now our primary Coordinator along with two other day of coordinators. We now have an amazing staff to work with our brides and execute the weddings.

This winery is really spectacular. Unique and off the beaten path in Temecula. We were able to provide our guests with multiple transitions throughout our event. Started outside for our ceremony, then moved down the hill at an outdoor patio for cocktail reception, then a walk through the vineyard before heading to the barrel room for our reception. Amazing. The challenge we had was the inflexibility of the venue with regards to set up time. They have a very strict contract with no room for negotiation of even 30 minutes extra or dropping off of equipment before your allotted 2hrs before event start. Be aware of that and be really sure your vendors can work under that timetable. Our Leoness coordinator, while great to work with in person, was not always responsive over email or to phone calls. It took multiple times to get a hold of her. It also took them 4-5 weeks from the signing of the contract to confirm and cash the deposit check. That was problematic, because it delayed further planning until the exchange of money and confirmation happened. We also got a wine club membership (to lower the cost) and that took several months to process. However, on the day of, the staff were amazing. If anything was an issue, I didn't see it, which is the way you want it to go down. We got nothing but compliments on the service during our event. Recommend the venue, but be ready to send constant emails and don't expect speedy responses during the planning process.

I recently got married at Leoness. It was the best experience ever. The day could not have been any more perfect than it was. Laura and her team were very friendly and made the whole experience very easy. The barrel room looked amazing. The ceremony site was incredible. The pictures came out amazing. Laura and her staff were very attentive but it never felt like they were in the way or anything they made sure everything was taken care of. There were a few tiny issues but I didn't know there were any the day of the wedding because they took care of it all. My husband and I could not have been more happy with how it turned out and would defiantly recommend Leoness to anyone who wants the best experience ever.

Leoness has the most gorgeous ceremony site and the Barrel Room is larger and holds more people than the others in Temecula. From the word go, Laura and her team at Leoness were a wonderful help. We met her at least 4 times and she was always responsive to phone calls and emails. Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the winery was and the barrel room is such a unique place for a reception! Laura was very open to our completely redoing the suggested floor plan to meet our needs for the size of our wedding and the extra touches we added. Our family, guests and even our photographer and videographer also had never seen anything like it and thought the place stunning.

Leoness went above and beyond to make our wedding a fantastic day. They had great communication leading up to the event and were very flexible with our plans. The onsite coordinator made the difference and ran things flawlessly. We even forgot a case of wine keys and they shipped them to us free of charge. Fantastic Venue!
