McClain Cellar's Laguna Beach Wine Tasting Lounge & Patio

Our Laguna Beach (Laguna Canyon Road) Location: Reserve a Tasting in Laguna Beach (Laguna Canyon Road) Our first location and the Orange County flagship. A “hip” modern-industrial luxury tasting lounge that is a cross between a New York “Soho” music venue and a “Napa Valley” tasting lounge has opened its doors in Laguna Beach’s ”The Hive” next to the Sawdust Festival. This is not an ordinary winery by any means.

 

Featuring a 16-foot glass garage door, skylights, and a shaded patio, McClain Cellars brings the beauty of Laguna Beach into the tasting room. Along the bar, you will find artistic wine bottles with unique paintings on each. Each of the wines has a clever name like, “Summer Breeze,” “Family Values,” “Promise Keeper,” and “Faithful Friend” to name a few. The walls have colorful paintings that encourage each guest to stop and gaze. With the capacity to host up to 49 guests at once, this quaint venue offers free parking, easy freeway access, and flexible hours. The tasting lounge is in the HIVE at 849 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, CA next to Oliver’s Osteria, Kitchen in the Canyon, and the Laguna Beach Beer Company.

This standing wine bar offers a temperature controlled wine cellar, beautiful custom artwork, and it is the perfect pairing for before dinner or lunch in downtown Laguna Beach.

Our spacious front and back patios offer a comfortable place to enjoy a glass of the good stuff with your very best friend.

At any of our locations, guests can have a private wine tasting, light snacks, charcuterie & cheese boards, access to the winemaker and owners, and much more. They also offer homemade artisan popcorn tastings, olive oils & vinegar tastings as well as wine appreciation classes. The wine ambassadors on hand are knowledgeable of the wines and eager to share the story of the McClain family with all guests.

 

McClain Cellars is an amazing new winery from the Santa Ynez Valley. What makes them different from other wineries in Santa Barbara or Orange County is where the wine is made and where it comes from. Founded by Jason & Sofia McClain, McClain Cellars grows, harvests, and makes all of its wine in the Santa Ynez Valley. After it is bottled and ready to release, they bring all the wine to Orange County where it is released to the public.

Great wine with...

Our Friends & Family

We make great wines to be shared by great friends. Jason & Sofia McClain started McClain Cellars to do something they always wanted; to spend more time with friends and family. For decades nothing has been more fun than gathering together for wine night at the McClain Family. Whether it was a Saturday afternoon BBQ, movie night, an evening after a long day or just Wine Wednesday, nothing beat hanging out with great friends, a glass of good wine and enjoying what life has to offer.


To make great wine we need three things, a family with a dream, great grapes and an amazing wine maker. Welcome to McClain Cellars!

Great wine. We have have been here 4 years in a row. We always come as a group in the wine industry. Standard for wine industry discounts is complementary tastings and 30% bottle discount. We were surprised this year. 10% discount on tasting and bottle discount. Obviously hurting or just greedy. A slap to all wine industry professionals. Highly disappointing. Was hoping to purchase at least a case of the wine. No purchase today.

Our 1st time was last night at their one year anniversary. The whole family came out to celebrate this memorable evening. Frank De Vaul played beautiful music throughout the night. We had the opportunity to meet the McClain's. They make wonderful wine to enjoy and the atmosphere is top notch. Our new favorite spot in Laguna Beach. Thank you for making us feel like family.

After my birthday plans fell through I quickly put together a day of fun including a trip to McClain Cellars after seeing their ad on Facebook. I had messaged them to find out more about their food offering and got a very prompt response with their food offerings as well as food options from their surrounding restaurants. Upon arrival we were greeted by several of their wine ambassadors in addition to Jason, the owner. They wished me a happy birthday and made sure my experience was top notch. All of the staff were pleasant to talk to! The wine was great and live music was another wonderful surprise. Not to mention it’s a family-owned business! I HIGHLY recommend a visit. We ended the night buying several bottles of wine and headed to the Italian restaurant next door for a wonderful meal. I will definitely be bringing friends and family back!

From a light and refreshing Pinot to a deep and flavorful Merlot, these wines do not disappoint! Made from grapes in a Santa Ynez Vineyard, it’s no surprise. Instead of driving hours to get to the Santa Ynez valley, I can now enjoy the same wines in beautiful Laguna Beach in a truly stunning tasting room. Well done!

Jason and Sofia have really achieved elegant flavors in their wines. For example, if you like a jammy, structured, Bordeaux blend that evolves for hours into silky layers of ripe black cherry with balanced tannins and subtle vanilla, you will love their “Faithful Friend.” I can’t wait for the barrel tasting on November 3rd!!

Paired the 2016 Purpose Road with a Prime NY Strip Steak grilled to medium and a creamy risotto side dish. The wine was a perfect compliment to the food. The blend of the Sangiovese was just right to give the Merlot the backbone needed for steak/beef dishes. Highly recommend.

We drove an hour and a half to attend a tasting at McClain Cellars, and was it ever worth it! An incredible variety of wines, each with their own unique characteristics, full of flavor, balance, just the right amount of tannins on the reds, and bright, refreshing finishes on the whites. My absolute favorite was Painted Dreams, lovely on the nose, a vanilla start and caramel finish, with a silky mouth feel and dark fruit flavors. Best of all, McClain has the selection of a long-established winery, without the snootiness. They are wonderful, warm, and engaging. We will be back!

My husband and I have been fortunate enough to walk this journey with the McClain family as they have poured their heart and soul into creating a company that can be enjoyed by all and built on the foundation of family, faith, friendship and freedom. Each one of their beautifully crafted wine stands on its own delivering the sweetest aromas, unique varietals and the most amazing tastes. Summer Breeze, Painted Dreams & Faithful Friend are just some of my very favorites, but I can honestly say that they are all delicious and are a MUST to try!!!!

It was a tremendous opportunity to be able to a private wine tasting for McClain Family Cellars. Too often we pour a glass of wine and enjoy the taste without knowing any of the history or story behind how that wine ended up in our glass. On this occasion my wife and friends were able to not only taste some of the most amazing wines we also learned the backstory of each wine and how it came to creation. The McClain Family Cellars has done a remarkable job of telling a story with each and every wine and creating passionate flavors. Overall a beautiful event with great wines and even better people.

We had the opportunity to attend this local wine tasting by McClain Cellars and I was very impressed. They brought a little bit of Paso to the OC! They did a great job on their reds and I was really impressed in their Family Values red. I typically do not like petit Syrah due to them being watery well this one was not. It was full bodies and delicious. Loves all of the others that we joined! Can’t wait to watch you grow McClain Cellars!
