For any of you that followed along on my weekend exploring Healdsburg, CA, it has become one of the spots I frequent the most. Not only because they have an amazing wine scene both downtown and outside of the square, but because of the incredible charm of the town, the amazing dining, and the people! It all comes together to create an incredible vibe that you must check out. Below you’ll find my Top 10 Healdsburg Tasting Rooms & Bars. Let me know if I missed anyone and, as always, there is no order to this list, they are all incredible.
Blood Root Wines
Another hot Winery & Tasting room in downtown Healdsburg is Blood Root Wines. Founded by, Kelly & Noah Dorrance who you may recognize from Reeve Wines, another spectacular brand they own and also from their former brand Banshee (which they co-founded and have since sold). They have the best taste in branding, decor, wines, really everything. Read more about their sister brand Reeve Wines and be sure to plan a visit to Blood Root Wines asap it’s amazing and so are their gorgeous wines. 118 North St, Healdsburg, CA 95448
JBC Tasting Salon
Another fabulous tasting lounge I suggest you visit if you’re wine tasting in Healdsburg is The JCB Tasting Salon. This is not only extremely glamorous and beautiful inside, but they have great outdoor seating (perfect during COVID) guests can also enjoy! I suggest a flight of their bubbles (how can you not enjoy Bubbles when at a Bubble Salon) but their still wines are also lovely. Maybe order one of each with your group so you get to try all of these delicious wines!
LIOCO Wine Tasting Room
LIOCO Wine Tasting Room is a super charming Tasting Room in downtown Healdsburg that I just experienced for the first time this Fall (Fall 2020) and I immediately fell in love. The team is super friendly and knowledgeable and the wines are spectacular. They’re also well priced for the quality level and they also offer a white range of varietals which is also fun for wine enthusiasts.

The new Siduri Wine Bar & Tasting Lounge will blow your mind. I visited and experienced the Food & Wine pairing, which is incredible. They also have one of the largest assortments of Pinot Noir Wines; they have Pinots from Sonoma, The Russian River, Oregon, and Santa Barbara County. I highly recommend any food or wine lovers to check out this cool new modern tasting room which will not disappoint. 241 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448
The amazing tasting experience. I loved the adorable wood cheese plate that the food was served on!
Banshee Wines is one of those spots that I never get tired of. Having first visited the tasting room in 2013, I immediately fell in love, joined the wine club, and the rest is history….. It has a cool, modern, fun scene with great wines, mostly Sonoma & Russian River including Pinot Noir, Rose, and Chardonnays. It’s really an essential stop in Healdsburg that everyone seems to enjoy.

The yummy cheese plate paired with a Banshee Pinot Noir, of course!
I’ve been visiting La Crema’s Tasting Room for years. They have amazing Sonoma & Russian River Chardonnay & Pinot Noirs and have a very cool tasting room with various tasting experiences to enjoy. Read my entire La Crema Tasting Room blog post here. 235 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448.
I adore the La Crema Chardonnay’s (below), between these and the Pinto Noir Wines they make I’m in wine heaven at this tasting room.
