“Taste Over 50 Local Wines Free”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We were there with another couple and had it to ourselves and were treated very well. Our host was a gentleman named Bill whom was both well informed and possessed an excellent sense of humor. Great way to taste wines from wineries you might never come across during a visit to this area.

“Happy accident”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

A friend and I traveled to Geyserville to check out a restaurant. After lunch, on the way back to the car, Adam suggested we check out Locals. We had visited several other vineyards that day, but neither of us had experienced a store front wine collective. It was a happy accident walking into Locals Tasting Room. We were immediately greeted by a friendly stuff full of questions to help them pour wines that were closer and closer to our preferred glass. An hour or so later, I had a case selected to ship home, was the newest member of the wine club and had a bottle or two for later in the weekend. What started as a random turn has resulted in a consumer relationship I hope to maintain for years. Great spot. Great folks. Incredible wines.

“An absolute Jewel, a must stop on the wine trail!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

While reading Fodor's guide book, my wife noted a reference to a winery collective tasting room for small limited production wineries. Well, what a find!
It's called "Locals Tasting Room", located at 21023 Geyserville Ave. In Geyserville,CA.
This place is a treasure chest of wines from about a dozen small wineries in the area.
The wines have one thing in common. All are good, no swill here, every one fit to take home to momma.
The owner is on site and has an indepth knowledge of every wine in her shop.
Try one or try several, note the subtle differences, ask questions. Carolyn is there to assist you every sip of the way. No pressure here, just genuine hospitality!
If you find a favorite or two, she will happily box them to go or arrange for it to be shipped if you are on a flying holiday and can not take it with you. Want a case? She can do that too!
You can look this shop online www.TasteLocalWines.com
We told the lady we were visiting from AL and looking for a nice place to have dinner.
She sent us right next door to a place called Diavola!
Read my next review to see how that adventure turned out in more detail, but you need to know that there are two at least two gems in Geyserville.

“Information to Go”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Representative of 12 (or was it 14) wineries and very generous tasting profiles. Informative staff and next door to Diavola's so location a plus.
