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"

Every single varietal we tried, we enjoyed! Loved spending time with Lauren in the Tasting Room and started a Club Membership. This is the best winery in Temecula!

Our group loved this winery. It was beautiful. Lots of cool art and neat gift shop items. The wines were amazing, both the white and red. The tasting menu was large so there was something for everyone. Three of us ended up joining the wine club and it was the only wine club any of us joined. We got to... More

One of wineries we visited staff recommended Lorimar Vineyards and Winery to taste. They gave me a discount coupon so we tasted at a reasonable price. Some bottles were awarded as a gold, silver and bronze medal. So they provide us with good wine for tasting.

The winery is in a beautiful setting with a nice garden and nice patio areas. They have a great gift shop and a gourmet food truck if you are hungry. The wines were very good and service also very good.

I was married at Lorimar on 10/24/15. We paid $50.00 per child for kids meals. These meals were not provided at our wedding and therefore, we had numerous children that were not able to eat and parents had to leave early. We brought this to the owners attention after the wedding so that we could receive a refund for the... More

I loved the grounds and building facade. I tried six different reds. The nocturne and fusion (the two high end blends) were good wines. They were well blended and had a good balance of fruit, technique-injected flavors and tannins. The other four reds I assessed had heavy heavy mercaptan on the nose. It took quite awhile to evacuate it to... More

We visited the Lorimar Vineyards and Winery on a Tuesday afternoon when the crowds were low. As this was our second winery visit of the day, I have the luxury of comparing the two (you can find my review of the other winery elsewhere on TripAdvisor). The grounds of Lorimar are nice, the service was not as good as the... More
