Our “original” Healdsburg Fine Wine and Foodie Walking tour. This 4-hour guided taste adventure, hits all the gourmet highlights of charming Healdsburg, the hippest town in Wine Country.
Each year during the holidays, this tour is suspended from Nov. 24 – Dec. 31. so we can offer you our annual Holidays in Healdsburg Wine & Food Pairing Tour.
Join us as we experience the art of wine and food pairing in a fun and casual way and discover for yourself why certain wines taste better with specific foods. We’ve partnered with the local wineries and gourmet food artisans, to offer you a wonderful arrangement of unique tastings.
You’ll meet your friendly guide in historic Healdsburg Plaza. After a brief orientation of the town, you stop by a French bakery that includes hand-crafted breads and is home to the most extensive dessert cart in Sonoma County.
Then it’s on to your first of three winery visits where you’ll enjoy a private seated wine and food pairing. Enjoy a collection of Italian and traditional wines paired with local ingredients from Sonoma County farmers and purveyors.
Continue to tantalize your taste buds, with a visit to the local tea shop to cleanse your palette in preparation for your next wine and food pairing. Here you’ll enjoy the aromas and tastes of several freshly made teas.
At your next stop, enjoy a tastings of several boutique wines creatively balanced with unique dishes. Each pairing will make you rethink the way you experience food and wine. For example, did you know that merlot has a very linear flavor and pulls out the strongest flavor in the food you are eating?
Listen to the winemakers and their families as they share their stories, passion and unparalleled love of the fertile land they call home. Many having European roots, not only in blood but in stock too!
Take the new found knowledge you’ve gathered during the day with you to your final tasting. Here, it all comes together. At this seated wine and food pairing, the tasting experience is enhanced by adding additional flavors such as spices, jams, and local cheeses, allowing you to truly experience the art of wine and food pairing your way.
After spending a day with a local, now its time to explore downtown Healdsburg on your own. Your guide will gladly make recommendations for additional tastings based on your preferences, make dinner reservations or even walk you to your next destination.
