Maurice Car’rie Winery
Maurice Car’rie Winery’s 91-acre vineyard dates back all the way to 1968, making it one of the oldest wineries in the Temecula Wine Vally. The late Budd Van Roekel, a pioneer in Temecula’s winery development, built this property into what it is today.
The tasting room is in a large ranch-style house with a huge counter to enjoy your tastings. The outdoor area is vast, with plenty of areas to relax with a glass of wine. The feel is more rustic, and it doesn’t have the commercial feel that some of the larger wineries in the area have.
Friday to Sunday you can enjoy a little shopping at their craft fair. Many booths are set up with local vendors selling soaps, jewelry, and trinkets.
If the Maurice Car’rie Winery is famous for one thing, that’d be its Sourdough Bread with Brie. It’s a garlic, butter, cheese masterpiece, and you’ll find many guests make long drives just for the bread. They do sell out, so if you want to try, make sure you arrive early.

- $8 per glass of wine with logo glass to keep
