The Local Taste is a wine bar and shop offering wines from around the world and locally, by the flight, glass and bottle. It is also a place where the community and guests come together to enjoy life.

With over 100 wines to choose from, all curated by our staff, we have something for every palate. If you aren’t in the mood for wine, we offer some fun wine cocktails and hard cider as well. Our light fare menu boasts a select of artisan meats, cheeses, truffles, breads and spreads all sourced from local small businesses. Every Saturday and Sunday, we feature two quiche options that change weekly. 

Our rotating wine flights will feature Virginia wines and wines from around the world. One of our goals is to help our guests experience all varieties and styles of wine in a relaxed, and casual setting. Please do not hesitate to ask us questions as we love to share our wine knowledge!

Wine Bar and Shop

The Local Taste was established to offer the Upperville community, and visitors to the area, a place to relax and explore wine. Our shop is situated in an early 1800's stone building which adds to the charm of the experience. Just over an hour’s drive from Washington DC, it’s the perfect location for a romantic getaway, special occasion or just a day in the country. With a number of Inns and AirBnB’s in the area you should plan to make a weekend of it! The Local Taste is owned and operated by Slater Run Vineyards located just minutes away at 1500 Crenshaw Rd.

The Local Taste

As part of our wine program, we offer regular wine education classes, wine and food pairings as well as other fun wine related events. If you are looking for a place to host a small intimate event, such as a wine dinner for friends, a custom private wine tasting, meeting or just about any type of adult oriented event we offer the space for private rentals. Our wine concierge program gives you the ability to have us source wines for you at a lesser cost than buying it off the rack. Just order a half case or more to take advantage of these great savings. Call, or email us for more information or to be added to our mailing list.
