My husband and I are wine club members at Wiens winery in Temecula and heard that Doug Wiens, son of the owner at Wiens in Temecula had his own winery in Newport Beach. Doug is also the winemaker for both Wiens and Orange Coast wineries. The location can be deceiving at first because it's in an industrial part of town off 16th St in Newport Beach. We used to work in that area so if you find yourself here, then you are on the right track. There's also a sign out front. The second we walked in we were greeted immediately. Customer service was top notch and of course the wines are fabulous. Once your inside, you almost forget where you are at. There's seating areas in the front and couches towards the back of the tasting room. We met Doug the owner and his lovely wife. On almost any given day you will see Doug holding a glass of wine greeting and chatting with everyone. Orange Coast is opened Thursday - Sunday. I believe hours are 4pm- 9pm Friday and Saturday with happy hour 4-6pm Friday. (They have great appetizers) and 12-9 Sat., 12-8 Sun. We joined their Yacht Club membership. They have different levels of membership and we are able to choose our own wines which I like.
If you are a wine lover particularly big reds and have never visited Orange Coast Winery then you have to go. You will love their wines and guarantee you will have a good experience overall.
