Front Street which runs along the bank of the Russian River is host to a number of great wineries. Davis Family Vineyards, Camellia, Holdredge, Huntington and Sapphire Hill all have tasting rooms on Front Street. The Davis Family "Old Vine" Zinfandel and their NZ Sauvignon Blanc are not to be missed. Other areas of Healdsburg are equally compelling. The Chalk Hill appellation is host to Chalk Hill Estates, Chateau Felice, Lancaster Estate, and Medlock Ames.

Additionally, Healdsburg is becoming quite the Foodie destination. Zinfandel, Chez Felice, Felix and Louis, Ravenous and the Dry Creek Grill all serve excellent food.

Ridge at Lytton Springs -- on Lytton Springs Road off Dry Creek Road, very close to Healdsburg. The wine is among the best -- zinfandel is the Sonoma specialty, but the second label cabs from Monte Bello in the South Bay are terrific too. The tasting room experience is not "disneyfied" like most of Napa -- just very nice staff & very good wine. The winery building is new & pretty interesting in its own right. It is an energy-efficient envoronmentally-sensitive "straw" buildings.

And a foodie trivia note -- the winemaker at Lytton Springs is John Olney, Richard Olney's nephew.
