Prices for tasting were very high; requirements for minimum orders meant you would have to spend almost $100. to taste there. No outside food allowed - forced to order their very small portion, overpriced offerings. Location in a parking lot not great either. Won't go back.

Thanks for coming out for a visit. Sorry, we did not have what you are looking for. We have no minimums unless your goal is to come out and just listen to our live music on the weekend. As a winery, we want our guests to enjoy the music with our wine. Other than when we have live music we are pretty flexible. :) Sorry you did not a great experience.

The owner and his crew are friendly, informative and professional. Their wine is some of the best California has to offer.

I have never been disappointed when I visit McClain Cellars.

A good time will be had by all.

Had to check them out before the lockdown. Amazing service, wonderful ambiance, and delicious wines. I left with four bottles!
