Maurice Car'rie Winery

Maurice Car'rie Winery G. Budd and Maurice C. Van Roekel relocated from Orange County a short way down the California coast to Temecula in 1984 to settle into retirement, when they discovered Temecula Valley Wine Country. However, the Van Roekels decided they would "try one more venture." They purchased a 46 acre vineyard in the Temecula Valley planted in 1968 -- the first vineyard established in the region. Then it was time to construct a winery. They chose a Victorian-style farmhouse architectural design, complete with gazebo, and in 1986 the Maurice Car’rie Vineyard and Winery was in business. Annual case production is now at 25,000, with an increase to 35,000 in the offing. Winemaker, Mike Tingley, is responsible for the production of 16 different varietal wines, four reds, plus generic red and white table wines. The winery’s vineyards, now 120 acres with plans for planting 20 more, are under the supervision of Budd Van Roekel. Estate vineyards provide 70% of the grapes used in Maurice Car'rie's wines, with the remainder purchased from other sources. Visitors are welcome from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. A selection of four to five Maurice Car'rie wines are offered in the winery's tasting room, with the selection changing monthly. The unique gift shop features wine accessories and packaged deli food items.
