Healdsburg — 150 Years of Small Town Charm

Healdsburg is a delightful town that has retained its small town charm while it has become a chic Wine Country destination. Geyserville, another historic town, is less known and more quaint and private with the advantage of being only minutes away from downtown Healdsburg.

Sonoma County is a jewel! Beautiful scenery, fine food, exquisite wines and great weather make this a favorite getaway destination. Having lived and worked in Sonoma County for more than 25 years, we have many favorite wineries, restaurants, art and other activities to recommend.
