Description:

What began as a long-time dream for Brother-in-laws Lawrie Lipton and Mark...

What began as a long-time dream for Brother-in-laws Lawrie Lipton and Mark Manfield, came to fruition with the opening of Lorimar Vineyards and Winery. In fact, the name Lorimar itself was formed by combining Lawrie and Mark's first names.

Lorimar's Old Town location was opened in 2009 while the Wine Country property was under construction. In the spring of 2012 Lorimar Vineyards and Winery celebrated with thousands of local residents and guests for the Grand Opening of our second location, an incredible Tuscan style winery in the heart of Temecula Valley Wine Country. Featuring breathtaking views of Mount Palomar and the Santa Ana Mountains, Lorimar features live music on the sunset patio every weekend all year long. Guests will also enjoy relaxing by the stone fireplace surrounded by a living art gallery, filled with works from many local artists.

At Lorimar we craft wines that are approachable with a fruit forward style that showcases the strengths of Temecula Wine Country. "We create wines using the best of the old world ways combined with today's more advanced technologies, producing delicious varietals and exciting blends," explains co-owner, Lawrie Lipton.

Our Tuscan style winery is showcased amidst adjoining orange groves and our 22 acre estate vineyard. Our first vine plantings were of Cabernet Sauvignon in 2000 followed by Syrah, Grenache, Muscat, Viognier and Sangiovese.

Temecula's wine growing region is unique and special. We are 22 miles away from the ocean which classifies us a Maritime climate. Balanced with warm sunny days and cool nights, the vines flourish and produce excellent fruit in our climate. The soil composition of decomposed granite and clay drains well and is ideal for retaining moisture reserves deep below the surface roots.

"Our goal is to create a Fusion of Wine, Art and Music"

My fiancé and I checked out this winery yesterday. We had a wine tasting and then we enjoyed their goat and fig flatbread out on their patio. Live music, lots of people, beautiful scenery. What more could you ask for! Perfect idea when you're looking for a R&R right down the street!

This was our second stop for a tasting having done Miramonte first. We preferred Miramonte. Pros:The bartender was very helpful and friendly. They have a cute gift shop with lots of wine novelties. We got a great price on Groupon. And they have a food truck that served very good food at very reasonable prices. We tried the baked brie... More

I had a groupon and it made it such a good deal! I really enjoyed the selection of wines, service was friendly.Going on a Monday made it pleasantly uncrowded, but it also meant the restaurant wasn't open.

The grounds may not have the flair and ambiance of other vineyards in the area, but the wine is so good. Each of the styles I sampled were very good, I preferred the Barberra. Would definitely visit again.

We purchased a Groupon for 4 people for this winery tasting. The red wines were excellent!! Thomas, our server, was excellent in both service and knowledge. He served us a wine that was not on the menu list called Fusion... a 2012 red blend that was superb. All other reds were wonderful as well and compared with 5 other winery's... More

This winery was really beautiful. The wines were really good (although I should add that by this point I had had quite a few since it was our third winery), and it had a food truck which was nice. Beware, you are not allowed to bring any food from the food truck inside! The outdoor area was nice though and... More

I think we joined Lorimar mostly for the patio atmosphere with live music bands on weekends. This Saturday was no exception and we bought a bottle of Red along with a few tastings of White to kick back for a couple of hours and enjoy the music.

Having a number of wine tasting rooms to choose from in Temecula Old Town, I was so happy I chose this one! Got to taste some of the best wines ever made and was so impressed with the pourer's knowledge of the wines she was serving. Lorimar Winery, you make great wine!
