Owner description: 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"

We visited Lorimar two weeks ago as part of our personalized wine tour with Tom, from Wineormous. We enjoyed our time there and tasted some excellent wines. They had sold out of a few of their red wines so we were given the opportunity to taste several of their reserve wines, which was a nice bonus. They have a nice... More

Penny is great! She gave us an informative tour of the winery and we had wine tastings along the way. Everyone was friendly and personable even with the crowd, and that sets them apart from other wineries! Thank you Lorimar, we will see you again!

This was the first wine tasting every for my wife and I, and while we at least knew a little bit, we were of course a bit nervous at being a couple of obvious yokels showing up to taste wine. Being early birds we were there 15 mins before opening so we walked around. Beautiful place, and you could see... More

Of the Temecula wineries I have visited, Lorimar truly had the best wines. More care in developing the grape and the crafting of the wines. Reminded me more of Sonoma than Temecula! Definite return here.

I visited the Lorimer winery on my last trip to Temecula. This time I stopped by the loft location in downtown. I can't believe I didn't hear about this place before. It was small but cozy. Renee was very welcoming and by far one of the nicest people I have ever met. We first went on a Thursday night and... More

Very nice. The main tasting room was closed for the day but they had another room open. It was extremely hot this day. The only thing that was annoying were the flies due to the heat but this was not their fault. Also, they had an outdoor area but if you wanted an umbrella, you had to stand. If you... More

There was just one server at the bar we were at and perhaps he was a bit overwhelmed but didn't share any info and not much personality - pretty much there to pour and check off. But I have been here when the place was packed and still had a good tasting experience. Previously I have left with a couple... More

Nice venue with a gazebo area for weddings, lots of outdoor seating area and live music on Sunday. Instead of the tasting, we decided to take advantage of the $30 for $50 worth yelp deal, and buy a bottle to enjoy outdoors. They were nice and generous, letting us taste different wines before we made our purchase. Good selection of... More

Matt was our host and he was a wealth of information. He learned what we liked and served delicious red wines with the skill of an expert. We would return to this charming winery in a second.
