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.
