Enjoy Great Times at Laguna Canyon Winery

Laguna Canyon Winery Wine Tasting Events offer a great way to enjoy even more of Orange County, California.

I found this to be true from the moment my friends and I walked through the doors.

The Laguna Canyon Winery owners and staff greeted us with warmth, fun and terrific stories.

The Laguna Canyon Winery owners and staff greeted us with warmth, fun and terrific stories.

One of these such stories is about the time that the owner, Marlowe, called his dad to tell him about finding a great spot for Laguna Canyon Winery. During this call, Marlowe indicated that he would love to have beautiful counters that reminded him of the exquisite work that dad did while building three family homes. Dad could not have been happier to grant his son’s wish. This was especially apparent when 13 days after the conversation Dad showed up in California after a three-day drive from Canada. He had with him the exact counters that would make this winery feel like home.


It was lovely to have begun my evening with this story of love and family.

It was also pretty great continuing this Friday evening tasting event. We so often forget to take the time to give ourselves a break and to spend time with the people we care about. In today’s busy world this is something we often do not do. Unfortunately, we often feel that we just do not have the time. We need to make the time. I am so thrilled that I took advantage of the Laguna Canyon Winery opportunity which takes place on the first Friday of every month. (check their calendar of winery events for any exceptions).

The Wine Tasting Event at Laguna Canyon Winery includes 10 flights of wine.

The pours are one ounce and accompanied by an assortment of delicious foods served buffet style.

On the night that I attended our meal began with beautiful cheeses, various olives and an assortment of meats. The meal then continued onto  Caesar Salad, Pumpkin Enchiladas, chicken and grilled vegetables. Our delicious feast was topped off with chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies.The Wine Tasting Event at Laguna Canyon Winery includes 10 flights of wine (one ounce pours), a hot buffet that on this night began with beautiful cheeses, continued on to pumpkin enchiladas, grilled vegetables, chicken and salad and ended with chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies, live music and a great atmosphere. At only $40 it is a steal.

Listening to live music, visiting with friends and enjoying the atmosphere made this a wonderful evening.

I found myself impressed with the friendly nature of the owners, staff and any of the folks I spoke to.

At only $40 per person, this night is 100% worth it.

I posted on Instagram to see what wine recommendations my #instafriends would make. It was very fun to allow them to help me decide from among the vast array of reds, whites and dessert wines.

My favorites were definitely the 7 Barrel, Petite-Sirah and the Tawny Port of all that I sampled.

I also really liked the story of how the Purple Paws California Red Blend and California Chardonnay were named.

A portion of Purple Paws goes towards the care of homeless pets.

Laguna Canyon Winery named this ‘Paws with a Cause.’ This name was created when a cute little furry friend ran through the winery and left footprints all over the floor.

Fresh grapes that have been perfectly handled mixed with terrific ambiance, great friends, delicious foods and a very fun staff make for a great evening. I highly recommend the Laguna Canyon Winery experience for a date with your honey, a night out with your friends or both. 🙂
