I am Jason McClain, winemaker and owner of an amazing winery with vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley called McClain Cellars. It is a first-class tasting room in Laguna Beach. I have a “hip” modern industrial luxury tasting lounge that is a cross between a New York “Soho” music venue and a “Napa Valley” tasting lounge. I have grown my own grapes under the McClain Cellars brand and makes all of our own wine in the Santa Ynez Valley. I make an amazing wine that is truly outstanding. I set myself apart by combing amazing art and unique names with wines that rate at 90 and 91 points according to Wine Enthusiast magazine. I have won countless medals. I make wine for people to fall in love with. I made my first bottle in 2013. It was a Bordeaux style blend.

My husband and I did this as our first air BnB experience before going to dinner for his birthday. Although we didn’t meet Jason, his staff were warm, knowledgeable and personable. We enjoyed the wine, the popcorn and their stories both personal and about Jason’s life and family as related to the wines. We have been to many wine tastings but this felt intimate and unique thanks to the staff.

The over all experience was absolutely amazing, the wine tasting was unbelievable with the different types (such as red and white wines) and flavor profiles (such as bitterness, smooth, fruitiness) which we learned a lot about. They offered so much more then just the wine with flavorful popcorn and oils.

My boyfriend and I did a wine tasting before dinner, what a great experience. Loved how the environment was very laid back and we didn’t feel rushed to get through our tastings. Enjoyed being able to order different individual flights. A perfect way to start a date night

In our case it seemed like there was no need to book an Airbnb experience. The bartender on duty wasn’t exactly expecting us it seemed, and she just mentioned that we get to pick one flight of wine and a popcorn flight which they sell to anyone who walks in the door just the same. Not so much an experience as simply visiting a somewhat pricey tasting.

Overall this was an enjoyable experience. I really appreciated Jason meeting us at our table to personally welcome us. Below are some notes to help manage the expectations of people thinking about participating in this experience, and some constructive feedback for the team that I hope is helpful: When you start the experience, you're presented with a menu to choose from four different sets of flights. The flights are priced from $15-30 if I remember correctly, which was a bit surprising since the experience upfront cost $30, so it's actually more expensive to book through Air Bnb than to order straight off the menu if you select a cheaper flight, or at least that's the impression I got. However, we did receive two extra complementary tastings in addition to the set menu, which was great. Pours were a bit small compared to other tastings I've done, but the wine was delicious. We also had to ask for our glasses to be changed between tastings, so our first couple of tastings ended up being out of the same glass. At other tastings I've been to, glasses are always changed between tastings, so I expected the same here. We had multiple hosts come to our table between tastings, and some of them seemed more knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wines than others. Nobody was rude or dismissive though -- the hosts were all kind and helpful. Also, the experience (at the time posting this) mentions that "Guests will also be able to 'Make their own Cheese & Charcuterie Board' while in the lounge." To clarify, the cheese, crackers, and charcuterie all come at an additional costs beyond the $30 price. The cheeses, crackers, and meats were reasonably priced. Thanks Jason and team for the hospitality :)
