Region is changing how you experience wine.

Region’s model has been uniquely designed as a winery co-op 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 in 2 locations – our first in The Barlow in Sebastopol, CA and our second location opened in April 2022 in downtown San Luis Obispo just under the Hotel SLO. Region is striving to develop a unique culture where together everyone enjoys their work, visiting our partnering wineries, being active and truly enjoying our regions.
