As you approach Vino Locale, you are transported into a delightful world that blends the charm of a fairy tale land and the Victorian age. Nestled in an old Victorian building, surrounded by bushes, shrubberies and flowering plants, this wine bar is a charming place to enjoy a candlelight dinner. Its garden dining even surpasses the dining room, replete with archways of crawling creepers, round tables covered with white cloths and pink flowers blossoming all around. This bar boasts of a selection of highly-local wines sourced from the wineries of Santa Cruz Mountains and the counties of Santa Clara, Contra Costa and Alameda. The wine list includes Feels Like Summer, Spring Fling, Love in the Secret Garden and Smooth and Sexy Reds. On some nights, musicians treat guests to the melodies of flamenco, jazz, bluegrass, folk and classical guitar music. Once a month, this restaurant also hosts a reception to showcase a selected local artists' work. If you dream of hosting your party under the stars, surrounded by nature, do hire this bar for your next function.
The Wine Room is literally as its name suggests: a dining space resembling the drawing room of a house rather than an establishment with a traditional bar counter. It is situated in a one-story house with a flat red roof and a bright outdoor lamp at its entrance, exuding a rustic charm. Inside there are sofas in red and cream hues with quirky patterns, mantelpieces with vases, black couches, and whimsical decor that adds a rather Asian glamor to the place. The idea is to taste globe-spanning wines in the way one wishes to, without worrying about critical reviews, the preferences of wine connoisseurs and the price of the bottle. Guests can sip wine such as Pinot Grigio, Rhône Blend, Riesling Spätlese, Tempranillo, Merlot and J Vineyards. The bar also serves a selection of tapas platters like Marinated Olives and wine-infused desserts. For the best experience, join the Wine Club and check their website for regular events. This lounge also host engagements, birthdays, theme parties, business functions and wedding receptions.
