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"

I loved ending our tour here. There was a lovely afternoon breeze, great views with a place to actually sit and enjoy it, live folky rock that you could dance to, and a food truck to help soak up all that vino. Did I buy?

Of the many wineries we toured over our 4 days in Temecula, Lorimar was well.. Middle of the road at best. Ali did a solid job. The 13 Slancio Malbec and the 13 Ariosa (Cab) are worthy of mention but we tasted 11 wines and that was it. We were on a trip to purchase and left here empty handed.... More

My fiancé booked a wine tour through "Straight off the Vine" wine tours. Lorimar was our first stop and happened to be our favorite stop. Our servers name was Jeremy and he was very knowledgeable about the different notes of the wines we were tasting. We told him our wine preferences and he was able to make knowledgeable recommendations for... More

What a great winery. The wine is wonderful and on most Saturday evenings, they have a band and food truck for guest. The patio was very crowded but we were able to find seats. It was a wonderful evening just relaxing with a bottle of wine and great music. They do have a food truck that serves upscale food to... More

Kelly & I joined Lorimar Winery a few months ago as a venue that offers very good basic food choices, live entertainment, and a relaxed atmosphere. The food truck should not be laughed at, try the truffle fries or a flatbread. Perhaps a Kobe burger cooked to order. Not haute cuisine but goes down a treat with their reds and... More

My car along with multiple other cars were broken into in the Lorimar parking lot during daylight. We were there enjoying some wine and the live band. We come down to our car to leave and see Lorimar employees checking vehicles for damage and we notice our car along with others had their windows smashed in and valuables stolen. This... More

Go when the food truck is there! I hope they make it permanent. The outdoor setting is perfect for enjoying your wines. I really loved the White Merlot and they had two reds that I purchased as well. Highly recommend.

A beautiful tasting room. Spacious common grounds. A helpful and knowledgeable staff. A wine maker that knows what he is doing. Great varietals and blends. What more do you need to know? SUGGESTION: Make this one of your middle stops in your Temecula tour. Why? To appreciate the quality of their wine, you need to be able to compare it... More

My husband and I visited Lorimar this past Saturday night. We had a great time listening to the Mercedes Moore Band. The band was so entertaining - we bought dinner from the food trucks while we heard the music. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed the red wine selection. We took Uber to the winery from our hotel... More
