Wine tasting can be a little bit intimidating. That is one of the reasons that we love Lorimar Winery so much. They do not only produce amazing, flavorful wines, but they are very laid back and fun.
Each time our clients visited the Lorimar tasting room, they had a great time sipping wines and the staff was according to them “the best in the valley”. Most of our clients love their sparkling wines especially their 2012 Allegro - Merlot.
We, at Aall In Limo & Party Bus, are specialized in wine tours and enjoy taking our clients to Lorimar Winery. This beautiful winery has breathtaking views of the Santa Ana Mountains and Mount Palomar.
Guests can enjoy music on the sunset patio every weekend all year long. They can also relax by the stone fireplace surrounded by a fine art gallery, full of local artist works. At Lorimar you will find accessible wines with a fruit forward style that displays the strengths of Temecula Wine Country.
History of Lorimar Winery in a Nutshell
The long-term dream of the two brothers-in-law Lawrie Lipton and Mark Manfield came to fulfillment when Lorimar Vineyards and Winery opened. Actually, the name Lorimar was formed by combining the first names of Lawrie and Mark.
The Old Town location of Lorimar was opened in 2009 when the Wine Country property was still under construction. In 2012 Lorimar Vineyards and Winery celebrated the Grand Opening of their second location, a wonderful Tuscan style winery in the company of thousands Temecula guests and residents.
Their first vine plantings were of Cabernet Sauvignon in 2000 and were soon followed by Syrah, Muscat, Viognier, and Sangiovese. Temecula region is 22 miles away from the ocean this means that the climate is Maritime. The soil made of decomposed granite and clay is ideal for retaining moisture reserves deep underneath the surface roots.
All in all Lorimar Winery is a perfect place and can accommodate large groups of people very easily. The staff is always very friendly you can enjoy a day of relaxation in the company of your friends sipping wine on their relaxing patio.
The mission of Lorimar Winery has always been to “engage all your senses” among their hand-crafted wines, a beautiful art gallery, live music and speechless views.
