Winery Spotlight: Get to Know… Lorimar Vineyard & Winery!

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

 

The Story

Lorimar Vineyard & Winery is a dream come true for brothers-in-law Lawrie Lipton and Mark Manfield.  Their collective experiences in hospitality and music inspired a unique winery concept.  “We showcase our wines with a supporting cast of musical, culinary and visual arts, accompanied by a passionate staff for the complete winery experience that engages all of the senses!”  Well, that says it all.

Lorimar is proud to announce the newly-opened Tuscan-style winery in the middle of Temecula Valley wine country on north Anza Road.  Featuring live music and a revolving art gallery, the new tasting room expands upon the arts-related features of the Old Town tasting room.

From the adjoining orange groves and 22 acre estate vineyard to a spectacular view of the Santa Rosa and Palomar Mountains, the setting is perfect for creating inspiring wine country memories with wine tastings, tours, private events and weddings.

Both Lorimar tasting rooms provide a friendly and uniqu­­e environment to enjoy their premium wines. “There’s always something exciting going on…wine tasting events, music, wine specials and wine classes,” says Mark Manfield.  “We’ve created a warm and inspiring place for people to stop in, relax and enjoy great wines.” The knowledgeable and friendly staff is always willing to answer questions about wine, lead guests through a structured tasting or just pour guests a great glass of wine of their choice…they’ll even offer you a recommendation or two regarding some great places to eat, stay, or taste in Temecula Valley.

­­

The Wines­­

 

Lorimar Winery offers a popular variety of reds, whites, and sparkling wines – most named after music terms like Medley, Crescendo, and Duet.  There’s even a helpful page of wine tasting tips offered on their website for beginners.  For the current full list of Lorimar wines available for purchase, click here.

There’s Music in the Air in Temecula Wine Country…

Thursday, October 6th, 2011


Temecula wine country offers beautiful vineyards, a never-ending selection of wines in addition to well-appointed tasting rooms, gift shops and restaurants, but what are those delightful sounds that always seem to fill air? It’s music! With many wineries showcasing both local and national talent, there’s something for the music lover in everyone. If the only tunes you’re hearing these days comes out of a pair of headphones, maybe it’s time to inject some much-needed energy into your repertoire by going to see a live performance! After all, what could be better than spending an evening sipping wine, watching the sun go down and relaxing while listening to talented and creative artists make music? Here are marvelously musical ways for you to get out there and see some incredible musicians:

Do the cool, Autumn breezes make you long for the warm air of summer? Be instantly transported to the tropics by steel drummer Shaula Walko, whose rhythms of the Caribbean will make you feel like breaking out your flip flops and dancing the night away. Cougar Vineyards will feature Walko as well as other performers during the month of October, and you can see these concerts free of charge with the purchase of a wine tasting. Go here for dates, times and other details.

Thornton Winery’s annual Champagne Jazz Series continues to provide a stellar lineup of nationally renowned contemporary jazz artists. Catch sexy sax sensation Candy Dulfer October 15. Dulfer made a splash on the international music scene in 1989 with her #1 hit, “Lily Was Here,” a collaboration with Eurythmics Dave Stewart, and has toured the world stage with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Prince, Marcus Miller, Beyonce, David Sanborn and countless others.  Don’t miss this very special evening- tickets are available here.

Need something a bit heavier? Shoot 4 Tuezday’s set list of classic and contemporary rock may be just what the doctor ordered. Miramonte Winery welcomes this 5-piece October 14, and lead singer Elisha Eddin’s sultry vocals are inspired by Janis Joplin, Melissa Etheridge, Blondie and The Pretenders.  The winery also hosts an array of other artists, ranging from blues to alternative to soul, during the month of October. For a full schedule of performances, click here.

With so many live concerts and performances at most of Temecula’s wineries, there’s always a reason to get out, get down and catch some talented artists in some of the best settings around. Check out each winery’s website to get a full schedule of upcoming music events.
