Wine Tasting Guide
Part Time
Region is changing how you experience wine. We offer an incredibly broad selection of regional wines, available by the taste, glass, or bottle, in a comfortable and approachable environment – at home or at a Region location. Whether you’re out for a drink or want to dive into regional nuances, we’re here to further wine’s mission to bring people together.

Our customers, owners and employees care about how the products and services they support effect the world around them, value experiences over possessions, are casually health conscious, and support causes they believe in.

Region’s model has been uniquely designed as a winery tasting room featuring 50 local, hard-to-find wines on tap as well as featuring a revolving local winery each week at our hand-pour bar, all located in downtown San Luis Obispo just under the Hotel SLO. Region is striving to develop a unique culture where together everyone enjoys coming to work, visiting our partnering wineries, being active and truly enjoying our region.
