General Info
Vino Locale has been our dream for many years. The idea of specializing in local wines came about after traveling to the wine regions of Italy and France where, when visiting a certain region, local wines are proudly featured in the wine stores and wine bars. Santa Clara county and the Santa Cruz Mountains have a rich history of producing world class wines, yet finding these wines in stores and restaurants can be a challenge. The wines we carry are predominantly from Santa Clara County and the Santa Cruz Mountains, with a few from neighboring Alameda and San Mateo. Most of the wines are made from grapes grown on the winery's estate, and most are family owned. We feature a different wine each month with special pricing for our Wine Club Members, meet the winemaker tastings and other promotional events. On a trip to Italy several years ago, we were in Rome and, while visiting Vatican City we noticed a McDonalds in Piazza Spagna and thought to ourselves, Why in the world would someone eat at McDonalds in Rome where the food is so exceptional? Ironically, while later in Tuscany, we heard of an organization called Slow Food. After some investigation back home, we learned that Slow Food was founded by Carlos Petrini as a response to the opening of that McDonalds in Rome.

Great place to relax and try out tasty, local wines

If you're looking for a place to spend a few hours conversing with a friend over wine, Vino Locale is a fun place. I attended a memorable and entertaining Mystery wine night on Thursday. Basically, you get 4 pours and have to guess the type of wine (e.g., Cabernet Savignon, Merlot, etc.). Having to guess and learn about the different wines was a challenging and interesting experience. I'd love to go back on another Thursday and try again.

Tips: Call ahead. Come without time constraints.
