A Foodie Paradise
The small town of Healdsburg is centrally located in Northern Sonoma County just 20 minutes north of Santa Rosa. Over the past few years, Healdsburg has undergone a renaissance as chic hotels, upscale spas, and hip restaurants have arrived in town. A walkable downtown, with over 30 wine tasting rooms and a vibrant food scene, Healdsburg draws young visitors as well as regulars who return year after year.
Healdsburg is a popular destination among foodies who are drawn to restaurants leading Sonoma County’s farm-to-table movement. Many of these establishments can be found along the streets lining the Healdsburg Plaza, including artisan bakeries, local wine bars, and restaurants with locally-sourced ingredients from the surrounding gardens and farms.
Healdsburg Lodging include grand luxury hotels and several intimate inns. After checking in, start the day with a tasting of sparkling wine and Pinot Noir in the modern, elegant tasting room at J Vineyards. Then enjoy Dry Creek Valley wines at Ferrari-Carano Vineyards, where their new Il Terrazzo Outdoor Tasting Terrace offers vineyard views and the Enoteca Reserve Wine Tasting Bar provides intimate ambiance. At night, hit the town, and partake in the imaginative farm-fresh fare and cocktails at Spoonbar, just a block off of Healdsburg Plaza.
