outdoor guide

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.


Wineries

Healdsburg lies at the crux of three renowned wine regions: Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley. In winter, that means lush green rolling hills with misty fog tendrils and mustard flowers come January. We’ve chosen wineries with wonderful wines and the coziest of ambiance for you to discover.
