McClain Cellars

(Change Location)

A “hip” modern industrial luxury tasting lounge that is a cross between a New York “Soho” music venue and a “Napa Valley” tasting lounge.

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,” “Love & Happiness,” “Promise Keeper,” 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.

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.
