Weekend in Healdsburg: Art, nature + gastronomy meet in the buzzy Wine Country town
By Amber Turpin
The rolling, grassy hillsides and vineyard views that stretch out in all directions on the drive north from San Francisco will immediately transport you to a rural state of mind. But once you get to the town of Healdsburg in Sonoma County, a mere hour from the city, you’ll quickly realize that this little hotspot is anything but sleepy.
While there are many historic and pioneering Wine Country places to experience here, the region has been undergoing a pulse of energy over the last few years, evolving with a slew of new places to eat, drink, relax and, eventually, sleep.
Here's our idea of a perfect weekend itinerary in Healdsburg.
The Harris Gallery
There are almost as many galleries in Healdsburg as there are tasting rooms, and it’s fun to break up your shopping stroll by stopping to gaze at some art. At the just-opened Legion Projects(711A Healdsburg Ave.) north of the Plaza, former fashion journalist turned artist Sydney Pfaff is curating modern art works with shows that rotate every few weeks. // in a historic building that was once a bank, you’ll find The Harris Gallery(320 Healdsburg Ave.), where two generations of artists, M.C Harris (dad) and A3L3XZAND3R (son, formerly known as Alex) has created a community hub that really indicates how Healdsburg, despite being a buzzy Wine Country getaway, is still a small town with a tight network of locals. Leah Harris (A3L3XZAND3R’s wife), just launched a wine program onsite, partnering with winemakers such as Wells Guthrie and Leo Hansen (of Leo Steen), to offer fights and glasses of impressive, custom-made wines enrobed in various Harris family art labels. This isn’t your grandmother’s white zinfandel at the art fair.
