Travel Tips for Healdsburg

Going Sideways on you

by karenincalifornia

Maybe this is a good time to go through the Do's and Don't's of wine tasting:

Don't sidle up to someone standing at the counter and say "Haven't I seen you here before" or "Do you come here often" or "Haven't I seen you in the movies?" On the other hand, it is ok to be original and say "We'll be fine as frog's hair."

Don't slap your wine glass back down on the counter and say "Hit me again!"

No matter how slow that guy is behind the counter, don't reach over and help yourself.

Don't snap your fingers and say "Hey Nurse" or "Hey Barkeep" when you are ready to go to the next wine on the list.

Don't say "What? No Rose? Hey no prob - just mix together some of that there reserve chardonnay and some of that Library Collection cabernet sauvignon."

Don't say "This wine tastes kind of bland. How about a shot of club soda and fixing up one of them wine spritzer things?"

Do buy a bottle of wine, if you like it, and carry it home or have it shipped. Pick a wine you are unlikely to find at home. Shipping laws in the US were recently loosened, thanks to one of the rare very well thought out decisions of our US Supreme Court. California wineries can now ship to more US states than ever before, including New York and Florida, both of which had previously prohibited internet sales from California.

Canoeing on the Russian River

by Callavetta

One of our annual family events has always been the summer canoe trip on the Russian River. Several times we have added a camping/B&B element and done some of our favorite wineries at the same time. Since it is so convenient to this region, it is appropriate to add it to this journal for the active wine enthusiast.

There are actually several places you can start a day on the Russian River. Burkes is one of my favorite because I spend more time in the boat on this part of the river and less in the water. We rent our boats here about 10 in the morning, and head on down the river (which goes all the way to the ocean, should one be daring enough to attempt that). Along the way there are countless places to stop and picnic, stop and swim, stop and lay on a secluded beach. Redwood hillsides tower above the river. From time to time you will meander past a vineyard or two.

One caveate: late in the afternoon the prevailing winds are from the northwest and by the time your arms are saying they don't want to paddle anymore is when the going might just get its toughest. It will be obvious where the end point is, as Burke's has employees standing on the beach pulling the boats up onto the shore. From there it's a short walk to the road to wait for one of the buses to take the weary canoers back to their cars.

Tips

Pack your valuables in ziplock bags. Secure all items to some part of the canoe or your person by some fashion of leash. Bring liquids (it gets hot out there). Wear lots of sunscreen and a hat and sunglasses (with strap). Take your time and enjoy the route.

General Info

by globetrotter_2006 about Dry Creek Kitchen

The Dry Creek Kitchen is one of the creations of Charlie Palmer. The DCK is located in the Hotel Healdsburg which is where we stayed. We had reservation but never made it. Not as expensive as Cyrus, but the food I heard is amazing here.

Ferrari-Carano

by Callavetta

Next stop, Italy. This beautiful winery is built like an Italian villa and their Siena is my all time favorite wine. Continuing on to Dry Creek Road, just before you get to Lake Sonoma you'll find Ferrari-Carano. Another commercial tasting room, with lots of wine fripperies, Italian pottery, clothing and gadgets for sale. Tasting is complimentary unless you try some of the private reserve or library wines. Then the $3.00 tasting charge is deducted from any wine purchase you make. F-C also has fabulous gardens that are open for touring between 10 and 5.

Rosenblum Cellars Tasting Room

by GracesTrips

This is a wine you can find in your grocery store most of the time. It's always very good with an affordable price. But...as I've said before, you have to go to the wineries if you want to try some of the varietals that are not sold in the stores due to low production levels. We tasted quite a few wines in their tasting room but one just really stuck out for me and I bought 1/2 a case of it to bring home. It was their Aparicio Vineyard Zinfandel for $20 a bottle. A really good deal, I thought. On this particular evening of our visit (during an open house celebration), they were giving food samples of a lamb stew. I'm not fond of lamb but this was very delicious (not gamey). Not sure if this is a common practice in the tasting room but definitely worth checking out.

Opened daily 10am-6pm in Healdsburg Square.
