Winery
Welcome to McClain Cellars - Laguna Beach! We are a “hip” modern industrial luxury tasting lounge that is a cross between a New York “Soho” music venue and a “Napa Valley” tasting lounge. This is not an ordinary winery by any means.

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. With the capacity to host up to 49 guests at once, this quaint venue offers free parking, easy freeway access and flexible hours. The tasting lounge is in the HIVE at 849 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, CA next to Kitchen in the Canyon and the Laguna Beach Beer Company.

    Thoroughly enjoyed a few wine flights and gourmet popcorn. Service was fantastic! Don’t think the glasses were ever empty. The added bonus was the great entertainment with Triple GGG.

    Overall great wine experience. Nice red wines and selection. However, the cost for appetizers was expensive for packaged cheese, meat and crackers.

    We had to go to the bar area several times to get another bottle of wine. The servers ( we had 3 different one’s) never came to the table to say they were leaving and handing it off to another server. The first server, she came over and made sure that we had our wine and glasses. After she left it sorta went down hill. This was my first time visiting at this location. It could have been better.

    What a gem! Nestled in Laguna Canyon, this is a great little place that offers a diverse and delicious selection of proprietary wines. I had a great experience, from start to finish. They also had a musician, playing acoustic guitar which was a wonderful complement to the food, wine, and atmosphere. Ariel, who works there, was warm and friendly as well as super attentive and helpful. Thank you!

    Juliana was a spectacular hostess and taught us a great deal about the company, the wines, the art used for labeling and other interesting anecdotes that enriched our wine tasting experience. I strongly encourage everyone to go visit one of their charming tasting rooms.
