Big Dreamers: Mike Rennie & Gary Winder, Leoness Cellars

Monday, April 28th, 2014

In the third installment of our new blog series “Big Dreamers,” we interview veteran wine experts and longtime partners Mike Rennie and Gary Winder, owners of Leoness Cellars on De Portola Road in Temecula Valley. When Mike and Gary founded their winery in 2003, they chose the name Leoness Cellars, which means “village of dreams” in Gaelic.

Farming citrus and avocados in the region as far back as the 1970’s, Gary teamed with up with fellow farmer and friend Mike to begin their viticulture journey in 1990.  They opened the first version of the tasting room in 2003 and the upgraded edition in 2006.  Now one of the most beloved and picturesque wineries in Temecula Valley, Leoness focuses on top quality wines, sustainable practices in the vineyards and first-class service in their tasting room and restaurant.

Check in every month where we feature a new interview with our Temecula Valley winemakers and winery owners. You’ll learn where they’ve come from before settling in Temecula, CA – and what keeps them passionate about the sometimes not-so-glamorous art (and science) of making good wine in California.

Interview with Winery Owner and Winemaker Mike Rennie, Leoness Cellars

1.  What were you doing before owning and operating your winery?

Gary Winder and I have been farming in Temecula for many years. We farm not only wine grapes but citrus and avocados. This harvest will be Gary’s 64th.

2.  What inspired you to want to buy a winery and what were the circumstances around choosing Temecula Valley, CA?

Most wineries come from farming families. We truly wanted to taste the fruits of our labors so Leoness came about. And we wanted the world to know that Temecula Valley and the South Coastal region are as good as anywhere in the world to farm premium wine grapes.

 

3.  What were your expectations of the winemaker lifestyle at the beginning?

We didn’t have too many allusions of grandeur. As hard working farmers and having been around the industry for decades we knew the back side, so to speak. It all adds up to hard work, quality control and a lot of sweat.

 

4.  People might think winemaking is glamorous.  Would you like to set them straight?

There is a glamour side to wine. There is the romance that goes along with fine wine, great food and times with those you love. We love sharing these things with friends and wine club members. It still comes down to working in the dirt and hot sun, and attention to detail to grow the finest premium wine grapes. Great wine starts in the vineyard.

 

5.  What is your least favorite thing about running a winery?  What is your most favorite – the reason you get up in the morning?

My least favorite thing is when things don’t go right in our customer service area. We know there is no perfection, but that is what we attain to. When for some reason we miss the mark, it’s disappointing. What makes us the happiest is when we can share the perfect wine experience with our guests.

Winery Spotlight: Get to Know… Doffo Winery

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

The Story

Nestled on the Northeast border of the Temecula Valley, CA sits Doffo Winery. Founded in 1997 by Marcelo Doffo, it is one of a few micro-boutique wineries in the region and the only one built around the former site of a Temecula historic landmark schoolhouse. Situated on 15 acres of rolling vineyards, the winery possesses a unique combination of old world values and warm family charm.  It is also home to MotoDoffo, the family’s private collection of over 100 racing and vintage motorcycles.

Famous for handcrafted reds, Doffo is focused on small lot, limited production wines made in the old world style. Reminiscent of their Italian/Argentine heritage, Doffo is the only winery in the region to feature an outdoor, wood-burning oven and grill where they often serve “The Parilla”, a delicious staple of the Argentine table, served with their own Chimichurri sauce and paired with exceptional Doffo wine.

The Wines

The unique micro-climate of Temecula Valley drives the characteristics of their wines and plays a distinct role in shaping the final result. Their collective experience, family traditions and farming techniques, combine with the terroir to create intensely flavored wines of complex structure, texture and bold, rich fruit.

Their philosophy has always been that good winemaking begins in the vineyard. They start by hand planting each vine and providing careful attention daily. They prune their vines and thin their grape clusters throughout the growing season to maximize fruit concentration and ensure the highest quality in the grapes. They also play classical music in the vineyard to soothe the grapes as they develop and mature.

The Tasting Room, Marketplace and Winery Tours

Doffo Winery’s motto, “Enter as a stranger… leave as a friend,” starts the moment you enter their intimate tasting room, filled with warm-colored hues, vintage Ducati motorcycles, stylish art prints and hospitable staff.

5 Reasons to Visit Temecula Valley During the Week

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Your favorite Southern California wine region is getting busier by the year. What’s a loyal visitor to do? Here are 5 great reasons to visit Temecula Valley wine country on a weekday:

 

1.  10% Off Your Lunch.

Temecula wine country is home to 12 delicious eateries (and counting) and most of these restaurant spots are hot come Saturday & Sunday. Reservations are required and tables are at a premium. Why not dine Monday-Friday and take advantage of the region’s coupon page which offers 10% off your al fresco favorites; including Meritage at Callaway, Creekside Grille at Wilson Creek, Cafe Champagne at Thornton and many more. Bon appetit!

Cafe Thornton, Thornton Winery

 

2.  No Lines. Anywhere.

Weekday visitors don’t miss waiting in line for anything in wine country. Forget lines to get into (or out of) the parking lot, waiting for the tasting room staff to come back with your next pour, putting your name in for a table or even the cue for the bathroom. Hello, weekday – goodbye, lines.

Miramonte Winery Patio

 

3. One-on-One Attention in the Tasting Rooms.

Weekends in any California wine country is always the most popular time to taste. But wine lovers come to the vineyards to experience what they can’t at home in their dining room: a personal, one-on-one experience. When the pace is slower at Temecula Valleys’ wineries, it’s common to strike up a conversation with the tasting room manager who ends up pulling in the winemaker from the barrel room to answer your random question about oak vs. stainless steel aging. On slower afternoons, your server might call the chef out of the kitchen to let you know what local farm your chicken came from. And there’s more time to bond in the tasting room with new friends over your shared love of good vino.

Damian Doffo, Doffo Winery

 

 

4.  Less Expensive Tastings, 2 for 1 Coupons and Happy Hours.

When it comes to wine tasting, the Monday through Thursday crowd can taste some of the same weekend wine flights for a little less. Indulge in weekday happy hours at favorites like South Coast, Danza del Sol and Ponte; and don’t forget your weekday 2 for 1 tasting coupons to a whole slew of top Temecula wineries.

 

5.  Great Hotel Rates.

Go ahead and spend the night on a Wednesday. Temecula hotels are eager for your mid-week business and they show it with their low weekday rates. Even though Temecula Valley is conveniently located near all major SoCal cities, after a day of touring and tasting, you’ll be safe and sound knowing your hotel room has already been booked – instead of having to gear up for a late-night drive home.

Get to Know… Baily Winery

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Story

Baily Winery is one of Temecula’s oldest wineries, founded in 1986. Owner and winemaker Phil Baily has produced hand-crafted premium vintage wines for over 25 years, and all made from grapes grown on his property in the Temecula Valley.  Their wine-making philosophy is simple: Baily makes wines that they personally like to drink. Their grapes grow on 28 acres of land across four different locations in Temecula Valley.

The Wines

Baily makes and sells all the Temecula Valley favorites including Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling and plenty of classic red blends, such as Meritage. For the full list of Baily wines, visit the wine store.

 

The Vineyards

Mother’s Vineyard

The first acre of Mother’s Vineyard was planted by the Baily family on Mother’s Day in 1982. Expanded in 1983, it now comprises five and one-half acres, all planted to the Riesling variety. The grapes have the classic apricot flavor prized in Riesling.

Berenda Vineyard

Planted primarily to Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon (five and one-half acres), Cabernet Franc (two acres), Merlot (two acres), Sauvignon Blanc (two acres) and Semillon (one acre), this vineyard was planted in 1968 and purchased by the Baily family in 1994. In 2005, one and one-half acres of Malbec and two and one-half acres of Sangiovese were planted.

La Serena Vineyard

Comprised of one and one-half acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and one acre of Sauvignon Blanc, these grapevines are the ones you see at the visitor center. Grown on sandy/clay soil, they produce wines with exceptionally fruity varietal aromas.

Los Amantes Vineyard

Planted by Phil & Carol’s son and daughter-in-law, Chris and Kim, this vineyard has two acres of Chardonnay and two acres of Muscat Blanc. The soil is decomposed granite and well-drained, producing grapes with intense varietal aroma.

 

The Tasting Room

  • 33440 La Serena Way (Corner of Rancho California Road) in the heart of the Temecula Valley Wine Country.
  • Open from 11 to 5 daily, 10 to 5 on Saturdays
  • Call 951-676-WINE (9463)

Private tasting experiences for up to 12 people are now available at the new exclusive Estate Club located at the production facility, hosted by owner and winemaker Phil Baily. This appointment-only experience features a library tasting with personal attention conducted in a beautifully appointed, intimate setting.  Included is a tour of the production facility at one of the few wineries in this Region where every bottle of wine is estate grown and bottled.

Appointment Only – call 951.676.9463 for availability.
Price $40 per person. Payment is due in advance with a 48 hour cancellation policy. No shared tastings.

 

Carol’s Restaurant

Carol’s is a much-loved wine country restaurant located on the Baily winery property.  The perfect lunch spot in wine country, Carol’s offers both indoor and outdoor seating.  Recently, they have introduced a full dinner menu, available on Saturday evenings.
