Guests can have a private wine tasting with the owner, light snacks, charcuterie & cheese boards, access to the winemaker and owners and much more. We also offer homemade artisan popcorn tastings, olive oils & vinegar tastings as well as wine appreciation classes.

At McClain Cellars we will offer you 4 different wine flights to enjoy. These include our "Laguna Wine Flight" which offers all white wines, our "Canyon Wine Flight" which offers red and white wines, our "Masters Wine Flight" which offers all red wines, and our "Reserve Wine Flight" which offers both red and white wines that are all from our Reserve wine list.

Guests will also be able to "Make their own Cheese & Charcuterie Board" while in the lounge. They can choose from over a dozen cheeses, meats, jams, crackers, nuts and more to create a beautiful and appetizing board to enjoy on location.

Finally, you will be fully educated on each of our estate wines.

I am Jason McClain, winemaker and owner of an amazing winery with vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley called McClain Cellars. It is a first-class tasting room in Laguna Beach. I have a “hip” modern industrial luxury tasting lounge that is a cross between a New York “Soho” music venue and a “Napa Valley” tasting lounge. I have grown my own grapes under the McClain Cellars brand and makes all of our own wine in the Santa Ynez Valley. I make an amazing wine that is truly outstanding. I set myself apart by combing amazing art and unique names with wines that rate at 90 and 91 points according to Wine Enthusiast magazine. I have won countless medals. I make wine for people to fall in love with. I made my first bottle in 2013. It was a Bordeaux style blend.

This is not a private tasting. You are simply buying a wine flight at a wine lounge. We never met Jason. The wine portions are small and there are cheaper wine flight options on the menu than what Airbnb is offering. And they stiffed us on the popcorn. I wouldn’t buy this.

Great place to relax and enjoy good wine at an affordable price! We did however have some issues with our reservation in that we scheduled our reservation for a weekend, but the place does not provide what is advertised through Airbnb on the weekends. Yet the host was understanding and prompt in responding to us when we requested a refund. We ended up paying at the winery for our wine tasting experience. We saved some money paying at the location vs the Airbnb price.

Just ok. I was told no walk ins allowed so I paid for an AirB&B experience. Traffic to this place is busy and we drove for about 2 hours to get there from our location. Hostess told us our table was given away... ah? You can return at 8 pm, so we got something to eat and returned at 8:00. Musician was on her way out our server was in a rush, they charged us our flights (which I thought I paid in advanced through Airb&b and there were loud kids on table next to ours. We never got to meet Jason or hear much about the wines, hostess just repeated what we already read on description. Anyways... we bought 2 bottles of some wine and balsamic vinegar (this was a delicious surprise to me, great fruity blend of flavors) my first and last time visiting, was an expensive 30 minute tasting experience.

Although I didn’t see the last minute message that my reservation for a wine tasting at McClain Winery had canceled until I arrived, Jason went above and beyond to turn a sudden, disappointing experience for me into a special, one of a kind memorable evening of wine tasting for one... me. He opened his previously closed wine tasting business and offered me the moon to make up for canceling this event moments after I made my reservation the night before. McClain Winery offers amazing blends of red and white wines which everyone should experience when in the Laguna Beach area! Thank you, Jason, for the opportunity to taste your yummy wines! I’m a member now! ...... and can’t wait for the my next shipment of McCain Wine! Gratefully, Nancy

This was such a stylish space with a social atmosphere. It was refreshing to go to a place that felt more normal than other places. The staff was friendly and engaging. We truly enjoyed this experience!
