Wine Tasting in Irvine


Select Local Merchants

  • Bacchus' Secret Cellar
    The "secret" in Bacchus' Secret Cellar is gas. Argon gas, to be exact, which powers the bar's preservation system and ensures that the wines within stay fresh for long periods of time. There are about 50 wines—mostly reds—on tap at the counter, as well as 8 sparkling wines, 5 dessert wines, and 12 microbrews. The library of options encourages guests to sample several, so it's wise to order a flight: you can get a signature array of 2.5-ounce glasses, or you can compose your own for a unique harmony of tastes. The bar is just the beginning of the cellar's wine selection. On the shelves that span the walls, more than 350 labels beckon to be uncorked. A bistro menu provides gourmet food to complement sips, from starters of oven-roasted dates to lamb burgers and prosciutto flatbreads, made by dropping a regular loaf of bread into a printing press by accident. There's also a full menu of cheeseboards, with goat, cow, and sheep cheeses from the United States and abroad.

  • Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival
    Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival assembles a line-up of more than 30 wineries, along with a few breweries and spirits makers, to provide its guests with unlimited tastings. Of course, beverages often benefit from food pairings, so there are a number of gourmet chefs on hand competing for the crowds' affections. Live music and a silent auction (bids can be submitted online or via mobile devices) round out the event's entertainments. It's a lot to enjoy, and it's for a good cause, as well: proceeds benefit the Legal Aid Society of Orange County and Community Legal Services in Southeast Los Angeles County. The not-for-profit offers free civil legal aid to those in need.

  • Orange Coast Winery
    At this self-described urban microwinery, vintners crush, age, and bottle their own vintages using local California grapes. Inside its capacious cellars, juices from grapes grown in regions such as Paso Robles, Napa, and Sonoma age in oak barrels. The resulting vintages are available for purchase onsite, online, or through a nearby genie, and also fill glasses Thursday–Sunday in the attached tasting room. There, patrons can meander through rows of barrels, stop to rest their glass on a granite-topped bar, and on nicer days, catch a salt-sprinkled breeze through the open warehouse door.

  • Frisby Cellars Winery
    After a visit to the wine-rich valleys of Santa Ynez Valley, the founders of Frisby Cellars Winery resolved to strike out on their own inspired winemaking venture. At their winery, they process top-quality grapes sourced from Paso Robles and Santa Barbara vineyards, transforming them into a roster of wines available to try at their Lake Forest tasting room. There, samples are the main draw, from an award-winning pinot noir to a lush, fruit-laden chardonnay with hints of oak. Frisby wines can be found locally at restaurants, and the team also works with nonprofits to help fundraise for good causes.
