Overall, it was a fun experience. There you taste a ton of different wines from wineries that do not have their own tasting rooms. The staff is very knowledgeable about their wines and I like the way the wines are tasted. Basically, you select a varietal (say Zinfandel) and you are poured three glasses of Zin from a sampling of the wines they carry. From that you select ones that you tend to enjoy versus ones you do not. That is how the selection is refined. It is a great way to sample wines.

We walked out of there buying way more wine than we intended to, and I felt like the manager was a pretty strong salesperson.

I recently visited Locals, on a Sunday afternoon this May. It was a really great time, I think I spent close to 2 hours in there. There are were alot of great wines to taste, a huge variety in the whites and reds, and even dry rose. About 10 different wineries in one tasting room- each with different story behind it. Also, I was lucky enough to make it on a day where one of their featured winemakers was pouring his latest releases-- they do these types of informal events quite often. Heart's Desire was the featured winery-- bought some of the Sauv Blanc-- and John Heart - winemaker- signed the bottle. There were some nice snacks out to accompany this day's tasting and we got to chat it up with the winemaker.
Totally casual and fun, with lots of wines. It was hard to leave-(a group of us wine tasters, who had just met in Locals, were talking away and tasting). I can see visiting again soon-- the list is updated often and you can practically deck out your wine cellar (mine being a wooden kitchen cart in my basemen!) with a wine, for any dinner or any friend.

Also, good ending to the visit-- go next door to awesome Italian restaurant - Santi . Carolyn- owner of Locals- sent us there. It is soo good-- kind of fine dining with a rustic feel, and again lots of local wines.
