Located a mere hour and a half's drive north of San Francisco (that's about 65 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge), the charming town of Healdsburg, CA, is the perfect wine country weekend getaway. For busy city dwellers and Bay Area visitors alike, the town is still fairly under-the-radar — which, if you ask me, is ideal for those accustomed to the chaos fueled by Napa and Sonoma during the summertime months. 

So why Healdsburg, you ask? Think cozy tasting rooms and wineries, plus local bistros brimming with delicious organic and farm-to-table eats to nosh on. Every block has at least one winery — sometimes two. If that's not enough to draw you in, fellow winos, consider this: It's all about the experience while visiting this hidden wine country gem. 

And if you're looking for that truly well-rounded experience while visiting, sign up for one of SAVOR Healdsburg's walking food and wine tours! You won't regret it — I certainly didn't. Now let me walk you through the places that gave me a taste for this little northern Sonoma Valley town.
