Welcome to McClain Cellars' Wine Library! We are a “hip”, modern, industrial and luxury wine tasting lounge located inside the Visitor's Center in downtown Laguna Beach. The Wine Library is a unique experience where you can choose a wine flight to enjoy in our cozy tasting lounge, or buy a bottle to take home. Our "Members Only" wine cave has hundreds of bottles on display... dating back to our very first bottle ever made, the 2013 McClain Cellars Faithful Friend. If you love art, wine, and great service... then stop by to be amazed!

    Awesome service and great ambiance. Smaller setting than the canyon location, but still a great time. Our server was super knowledgeable about the wine and even gave some great recommendations for dinner in the area.

    Caitlin was an absolute delight and the main reason we would return to the Forest Ave location. She knows the wine and made for a great experience. She is just lovely. And the white wine is pretty good too.
