Curated Experiences

In the past 150 years, Healdsburg has morphed from the pioneer outpost it was during Harmon Heald’s days, to a sleepy town of prune and grape growers, to an acclaimed destination as the jewel of Sonoma County’s wine country.

Today, visitors can stroll the charming town while browsing boutiques, tasting rooms, art galleries and restaurants helmed by dedicated chefs. Or they can venture further afield along stunning country roads to dozens of wineries, both legendary and yet-to-be discovered.
