Cornelius was great with our wine tasting adventure. He was knowledgeable about the wine and had great customer service. We thoroughly enjoyed the wines and the experience. Highly recommend.

The wines were nothing spectacular. My partner and I ordered two different flights and shared them. Neither of us tasted anything we wanted to bring home. Service was decent and brought by a chipper, young man who gave us honest assessments of what we were drinking. Overall, wouldn’t recommend.

Very cool tasting room, great reds and so cool to know they have a tasting room in Laguna Beach in my native OC. Highly recommend and Jason the owner is a really nice guy.

Most definitely recommend McClain's! The service is AMAZING! The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. It is ALWAYS a MUST-VISIT everytime we come to Solvang!

Wife and I exploring Solvang with another couple decided to do a tasting at McClain. My wife used to be in the business and our friend used to own and manage an Italian restaurant in Newport Beach. At $35 and $40 for a regular Red and Reserve flight, we thought the wines would be excellent, but they were nothing special.The pours seemed light and after the 3rd pour, our friend Dom said so to our server, who very curtly stated, "It's a one ounce pour!" She then proceeded to add another few drops to his glass, then moved on. Really!!We usually buy a few bottles at a tasting, but this treatment soured the rest of our experience... and $35 or $40 for the equivalent of one glass of mediocre wine is absurd!

We love Cornelius!


This was a great spot to enjoy a lovely wine tasting pre-dinner. Wines were wonderful, service was great and they had live music. Highly recommend it!


Always a wonderful experience at McClain Cellars. Not a place where you can order food however, there is an adjacent cheese shop where you can order items to nibble on and they’ll deliver to the tasting room. HIGHLY recommend, some of the best wine in the area.

My wife and I stopped in before our dinner reservation and had a great glass of wine and just really enjoyed sitting out front watching the cars and people go by. The service was great and all the people were very friendly. We live in Ventura County and will definitely be coming back. Leon and Christine.
