The grapevines are in their full glory and it’s a gorgeous time of year to get outside here in Healdsburg. We’ve created an Outdoor Guide to Healdsburg (and beyond) to help you plan a visit that will offer both pleasure and peace of mind.
Most spots need advance reservations. Our Concierge team is ready to assist you with making your plans.
Maybe you’re looking for the perfect, picturesque picnic spot or a place to be pampered with a gourmet meal. Perhaps you’re wanting to find your zen among the vines or enjoy an off-the-beaten-path ride or hike. Whatever your pleasure, Healdsburg has it all.
Healdsburg lies at the crux of three renowned wine regions: Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Russian River Valley. Lucky for all of us, that means plenty of beautiful alfresco options for enjoying the incredible wines of the region. Here are some of our favorites.
Bella has several outdoor offerings to experience their beautiful Dry Creek estate, from self-guided hikes to charcuterie and wine pairings.
