The Crown Jewel of Temecula Wine Country. The Famous Maurice Carrie Winery. When you visit Temecula Valley Wine Country and cruise down the quilted vineyard landscapes, there's no missing this French provincial estate. Maurice Carrie Winery and Vineyard sits on 91 serene acres in the heart of Temecula Wine Country with almost 1/2 mile of frontage on famous Rancho California Road, the main artery of wine country Temecula.. Maurice Carrie Vineyard and Winery was founded in 1986 and was one of the first wineries in Temecula. Today, the rustic vineyard contains some of the valley's oldest vines, originally planted in 1968. Vines grow across more than 70 acres of this beautiful and historic property. As one of the first vineyards planted in the region in 1968, Maurice Carrie Winery is locally regarded as having one of the most inviting, warm atmospheres in Wine Country. With acreage spread out behind, it's known to Temecula residents for its bucolic setting. The tall windmill lazily spins in the gentle breeze, the original little warehouse still stands as a landmark, and an aura of 30 years of tradition greets you everywhere you look. With beautiful, romantic grounds and authentic hand-built charm. Multiple parcels involved in sale.
