Fun Fact

Healdsburg wasn't always a wine region. 50-60 years ago it was mostly a cattle raising region. There were farms, dirt, and cows. Today, it is completely tranformed into a wine region with high end wineries and restaurants. It is incredible how wine can transform a region.

Where to stay

In Healdsburg highly recommended staying in the square. The square has a great vibe and most importantly you can walk to dinner and wine tasting.

Healdsburg Inn

This hotel is right on the square, it has big rooms if you are traveling with little kids and breakfast included.

Where to eat

Campo Fina is a super fun place. It has a lively patio and tasty Italian food. Portions are big! make sure you share

I'm not generally a fan of Spanish restaurants in the US, but Bravas is pretty good. I really enjoyed their octopus, their tortilla, and lamb burger all in the cozy patio.

Good food, great coktails. Right on the square. This is a great place to grab a drink before dinner.

Healsburg Wineries

Reeves Wines

Reeves is my new favorite. If you like wineries like Scribe, you will love Reeves. It is a small reservation-only winery with a great outdoors and a cool vibe. I thought the wine is phenomenal and it is definitely a must visit. Make sure you make a reservation.

Banshee Wines

A long time favorite. The Banshee Pinot Noir always stands out. Banshee is a tasting room right by the square with cool vibes and great atmosphere. During covid they are serving in two small tables so it is recommended you call and make a reservation.

De La Montanya Vineyards and Winery

De La Montanya is a small family winery. You can only get their wines at the winery. It is a creative winery with a lot of different varietals. Also requires reservation.
