The Perfect Town.
Just seventy-five miles up Highway 101 from San Francisco, Healdsburg sits at the intersection of three wine-producing valleys: the Russian River Valley, the Alexander Valley, and the Dry Creek Valley. Nestled in these valleys are some of the country’s finest wineries and vineyards.
Healdsburg's small-town atmosphere, fantastic dining, and charming town square compliment its bevy of viticultural choices. In the downtown area, there are dozens of tasting rooms, for wineries that range from large-scale distributors to family-owned wineries that produce just a few hundred bottles a year. There are fine dining establishments, tapas restaurants, burger joints, and some killer Mexican restaurants. There are spas, clothing stores, bakeries, ice-cream parlors, and craft brewers.
And in the center of it all is Healdsburg's historic Plaza – a shady, Spanish-style square that's the perfect place to sit and watch life go by.
