For any of you that follow along my on my weekend exploring within California Healdsburg has become one of the spots I frequent most. Not only because they have an amazing wine scene both downtown and outside of the square, but because of the incredible charm of the town, the amazing dining, people are just vibe of the area. Below you’ll find my Top 10 Tasting Rooms & Bars in Healdsburg. Let me know if I missed anyone and as always, there is no order to this list, they are all incredible.
1. Duke’s – Best craft cocktails
The newly opened Duke’s is one of the hottest spots in town for a cocktail and lively night life. Read more about this popular hot spot here. 111 Plaza St, Healdsburg, CA 95448.
2. Siduri – Best Wine & Food pairing experience
The new Siduri Wine Bar & Tasting Lounge will blow your mind. I visited and experienced the Food & Wine pairing, which is incredible. They also have one of the largest assortments of Pinot Noir Wine with Pinots from Sonoma, The Russian River, Oregon and Santa Barbara County. I highly recommend any food or wine lovers to check out this cool new modern tasting room which will not disappoint. 241 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448
The amazing tasting experience. I loved the adorable wood cheese plate the food was served on!
3. John & Zeke’s – Best late night local bar
It is not a trip to Healdsburg without a late night stop at John & Zeke’s. This is for sure a locals scene which is part of what I like about it. I usually have a Bud Light (my beer of choice), play pool and if I’m hungry enough have one of their hot dogs. Sounds random but a hot dog and bag of chips can really hit the spot. 420 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448
4. Banshee Wines Tasting Room – coolest tasting room setting
Banshee Wines is one of those spots that I never get tired of. Having first visited the tasting room in 2013 I immediately fell in love, joined the wine club and the rest was history….. It has a cool modern fun scene with great wines, mostly Sonoma & Russian River including Pinot Noir, Rose and Chardonnays. It’s really an essential stop in Healdsburg that everyone seems to enjoy. Read more about Banshee Tasting Room here. 325 Center St, Healdsburg, CA 95448
The yummy cheese plate paired with a Banshee Pinot Noir of course!
5. Barn Diva’s Gallery & Bistro – cutest setting for a drink and light bite
Barn Diva has the coolest spot next door called The Barn Diva Studio. It’s great for private events or just a drink or light bite as they have a smaller menu than the Barn Diva Restaurant next door. I went before dinner at Spoon Bar one time and it was great. We tried some yummy appetizers and their cocktails are awesome!
6. Bergamot Alley – Best grilled cheese late night eats
Bergamot Alley is not only a fabulous bar with an awesome assortment of tap beers, they also offer wine and delicious casual eats such as their grilled cheese sandwiches. It seems to have a casual vibe, yet by no means a dive bar, more of an in between for a casual setting yet if you want a nice glass of wine you’ll find it here. 328A Healdsburg Avenue
Healdsburg, CA 95448.
Not only is Bergamot Alley amazing for their beer and wine assortment, they are also known for their delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. This is the spot for late night yummy eats!
7. La Crema Tasting Room – Best lounge setting you will not want to leave
I’ve been visiting La Crema’s Tasting Room for years. They have amazing Sonoma & Russian River Chardonnay & Pinot Noirs and have a very cool tasting room with various tasting experiences you can enjoy. Read my entire La Crema Tasting Room blog post here. 235 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448.
I adore the La Crema Chardonnay’s, between these and the Pinto Noir Wines they make I’m in wine heaven at this tasting room.
8. Spoon Bar – Best restaurant cocktails
Located within H2 is Spoon Bar with a great scene for California Cuisine and delicious cocktails.
9. Bear Republic Brewing Co. – Best brewery in town
After a day of wine tasting sometimes you just need a Beer. The Bear Republic Brewing Company is perfect for a relaxing setting, casual eats and amazing beer. It’s definitely a popular spot as it’s one of the only breweries in downtown Healdsburg. 345 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448
10. Hartford Family Tasting Room – Best Zinfandel assortment
Hartford Family Wines is a great winery that I adore so it’s great being able to taste their wines in downtown Healdsburg. See more about the downtown Hartford Family Wines tasting room here. 331 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448.
