Nestled along the Russian River in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, Healdsburg (pop. 11,254) combines small-town charm, stunning vistas, and award-winning vintages with an eclectic mix centered around a charming town plaza lined with shops, restaurants, tasting rooms, galleries, and bars.

Healdsburg CA is a wine and culinary epicenter. Sitting at the juncture of three prime winegrowing regions — the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and Alexander Valley wine appellations — this charming town makes an ideal base of operations for wine tasting.

Dining options offer something for everyone, from hearty hamburgers to haute cuisine, and just about everything in between.

For art lovers, more than two dozen art galleries are within walking in the downtown area, and the Healdsburg Museum and Historical Society hosts exhibits about the rich history of Healdsburg and surrounding areas.
