What began as a long-time dream for brothers-in-law 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. A unique winery concept was formed through the combination of their shared passion for music, experiences in hospitality, and culinary and performing arts.
The journey began in 2009 with the opening of Lorimar’s Old Town location, a placeholder while the Wine Country location was under construction. In May 2012, Lawrie and Mark, along with hundreds of local residents and guests, celebrated the grand opening of Lorimar Winery, a Tuscan-style winery in the heart of the Temecula Valley. Featuring breathtaking views of Mount Palomar and the Santa Ana Mountains, Lorimar is the perfect picturesque setting to enjoy live music, local artwork, gourmet food, and award-winning wine. Lorimar Winery has a distinct personality which is built around the perfect combination of wine and music.
Located in Temecula Valley's Wine Country "Where the Sun Shines Through the Mist," Lorimar Winery has taken advantage of the valley’s unique growing conditions. Situated between 1,400 and 1,600 feet above sea level, Temecula Valley's 3,000 acres of vineyards provide ideal conditions for growing Lorimar’s premium wine grapes.
