A large outdoor dining area, with both adult and children’s game sections and a performance stage, overlooks a lake flanked by palm trees. The large kitchen includes a pizza oven, and the Lakeside pub will place a greater emphasis on food-and-beer pairings.

Journeyman Meat Co. open in Healdsburg
Enjoy handcrafted salumi, sausages, and seasonal fare paired with local wines at the Journeyman Meat Co., an old-world butcher shop in the Wine Country town of Healdsburg, in Sonoma County.

Owner Peter Seghesio was only three years old when his father began teaching how to craft sausage and cure meat. As an adult, Peter took the reins of the family business, Seghesio Family Vineyards, and quickly earned national accolades for Zinfandel produced from the family’s historic vineyards.

After passing the winery to new hands in 2011, Peter began traveling to Italy to study the art of Italian-style whole animal butchery under world-famous butchers Dario Cecchini of Panzano and the Marini family of Florence. He brought one of Cecchini’s leading butchers, Samuele, to join the Journeyman Meat Co. team.

The new store offers a curated butcher counter, a limited menu from the wood-fired oven, and handmade salumi delivered daily from the salumificio. It also offers seasonal meat and wine pairings, featuring wines from the family ranch along with select labels from small, local producers.
