A Unique Venue
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 their doors in Laguna Beach’s ”The Hive” next to the Sawdust Festival. This is not an ordinary winery by any means. Frankly, it is like nothing else we’ve seen in Orange County.
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,” “Painted Dreams,” “Sacred Love,” and “Faithful Friend” to name a few. The walls have colorful paintings that encourage every 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 Kitchen in the Canyon and the Laguna Beach Beer Company.
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 to their guests.
McClain Cellars is an amazing new winery from the Santa Ynez Valley. What makes them different from other wineries in 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 their 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.
