The Restaurant at Leoness Cellars as been rated #1 Winery Restaurant for 4 years in a row by USA Today – A completely full service menu highlighting items made 100% from scratch.

This exquisite feast was not one to be forgotten anytime soon. I cannot say enough about the service, the beauty, the quality of cuisine and of course the company. A great reminder to slow down and make time for laughter, friends, and fabulous food and wine! When are we returning?!?
