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"

Love the variety of wines available for tasting here. On the weekends the winery opens their food truck. The food gets delivered to your table. Who can pass up a kobe beef burger!! It was delicious. They also have a stage with live entertainment.

This winery has something for everyone. Sweet wines, sparkling wines, bold reds and dry whites, too. It is so nice to look at the artwork while tasting their wine. Great sitting room to sip wine, too. There is a food truck on the weekends, too! Great stop!

One of the nice aspects of Lorimar Vineyards and Winery is that it’s slightly off the main drag of Temecula wineries, which gives it a somewhat more isolated and peaceful feel.

I came here with a girlfriend on a Groupon. We had a wonderful time and the wine server helped us pick wines we enjoyed by asking us questions. We had a wonderful experience and the ambiance is nice. They also have outside seating if you prefer to linger over your tastings. Their wine club is a bit on the pricey... More

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

Since our Temecula Olive Oil taste guide gave us a bunch of good references and some coupons for Lorimar, we did it. Very nice setting and with a gorgeous day, this is the perfect place to sample local wine. Our wine hostess was knowledeable, outgoing and helpful and was generous with her pours. We did the six sample package (and... 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.
