Where we came from

The Journey

If there is one thing that holds true for Jason and Sofia McClain, it is the belief that dreams do come true – a belief that they have instilled in their children from a young age. With every venture or activity the family engages in, whether at work or play, there is an underlying theme of setting new goals and accomplishing new heights. Their perseverance and determination to give their all to the things in life they hold dearest is apparent from the moment you meet them.

Wow!  That is all I can say about McClain wines.  Jason & Sofia have done a great job putting together an amazing collection of wines.  We are in love with Painted Dreams.  That one really rocks!  Every wine they seem to put out seems to get better with age.  I can enjoy them now or wait for a while.  They never disappoint.

McClain wines are, quite simply, delicious. I found that I was comparing the wines from the other clubs I belonged to against McClain wines and I dropped all of them to focus solely on McClain wines. Jason McClain is warm, friendly, and has an obvious passion for his wines. The staff could not be more friendly and the newly opened tasting room is wonderful and well thought out. Stop by for a tasting; you won't be disappointed.

The wine was fabulous. Very quaint atmosphere. This was my first visit, I would have loved to have known no food service. Cheese and salami from refrigerated case was very reasonable. Had a proper meal on PCH later in the day.I highly recommend for a local relaxing experience.

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.

My husband & I attended their wine tasting event and really enjoyed the wine. Conversation with many of their friends all their supporting and helping out was great too. We love wine, but it's even better shared with friends and delicious snacks. You certainly sensed what they stand for... Family, Friends, Faith & Freedom! We're looking forward to enjoying our new collection and attending their next event!. 🍷✨ Many Mahalos!🌺

I’m a McClain but not related to Jason and Sophia. It was an event I came across on Facebook and didn’t think it was real. I invited a couple friends to attend with me and we truly enjoyed the experience. I became a member, and look forward to the grand opening.

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!!!!

My husband and I were fortunate enough to attend a tasting event with friends recently and the wine and experience were both fantastic. Jason and Sofia’s passion for their wine is evident through their meticulous attention to detail, a true labor of love. The bottles are exquisite and will add a beautiful piece of artwork to our dinner table in addition to the delightful wine!

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.

What a treat to be able to sample these wines before they are released to the public!! Have tried them twice and they are marrying together beautifully - a welcome addition to any collection! I love the fact that we have a local winery that is truly "doing it right", love the family behind it, and love the juice!! Go - get some!! You will not be disappointed other than the moment when you realize the bottle is empty. Salut'!!

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!

Fabulous wines that have a distinctive taste. These are not your typical Cabs, petite sirahs, or red blends. They have a complexity to them that is difficult to put into words. Highly recommend Faithful Friend and Sacred Love for those red wine connoisseurs. Purpose Road is a great wine to serve to friends that don't typically drink wine, it's soft, smooth, and easy to drink.

It had a wonderful taste as well as an after taste. I can't wait to try the rest of them! You won't be disappointed. The bottles also have a beautiful design.
