As you know from following me, I LOVE attending Wine Country Events and even better, when they happen in Healdsburg where I am now lucky to call home! One of my favorites events is the Healdsburg Wine & Food Experience. This year was their second year hosting the event and it just keeps getting better. Follow along below to learn more about the VIP Package at Healdsburg Wine & Food Experience.
VIP Package at Healdsburg Wine & Food Experience
This event is all about celebrating those who make the magic happen. This experience is a weekend long celebration that features the best of Sonoma County food, wine and even spirits. The world-renowned food and wines deserve this celebration! The Healdsburg Wine & Food Experience showcases farmers, growers, winemakers and chefs. It highlights the culinary diversity, sustainable farming practices, and connection to the agriculture of Sonoma.

It wouldn’t be the Healdsburg Wine & Food Experience if the wine and food weren’t absolutely spectacular. I am constantly impressed throughout these events since the food is exceptional. Something really special about this event is you’re able to meet and learn from the best. You can eat and drink with celebrity Michelin-starred chefs and world-renowned wine experts.
Guests were welcomed with bumps from the California Caviar Company. How fun!
