About Us

A unique European-style wine bar and bistro specializing in local wines and delicious food.
Great for private events with an outdoor garden and patio seating.
Vino Locale invites you to come and enjoy the ambiance . . . 
A glass of wine, a great meal, and friendly people

We specialize in small production boutique California wines.  Many of the wines are estate-grown and from family-owned wineries.  We feature “Meet-the-Winemaker” tastings and other promotional events, including Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association Passport Days.  Santa Clara County and the Santa Cruz Mountains produce world-class wines that are hard to find in stores and restaurants, and we are proud to showcase them at Vino Locale.  Stop by for a wine tasting journey from Paso Robles to Santa Barbara, Monterey, Livermore, Amador, Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino.

We are strong supporters and members of Slow Food and our support is reflected in the food and wine that we serve. We're committed to using seasonal, local, and organic products.


Like wine and food, art is a huge part of what makes our region of the world such a great place to live. Thankfully, there are hundreds of talented artists here who love to share their creations. We feature the work of local artists, including a “Meet-the-Artist" reception. Stop by for a glass of wine, a nibble, and enjoy the latest artwork on our walls.
