What They Say

Clients Testimonials

Mark & Christen Barley

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.

Nothing compares to this.  We are so in love with McClain Cellars.  These wines are easy to drink and change as they open up.  Happy to be a lifetime club member over here.

The McClain Family has done it again.  What an amazing journey it has been to watch them grow and make the move into wine.  This vineyard is second to none.  The rich flavors are 100% amazing.  LOVE IT!!!
