“Going up north with the redwoods and driving along the coast, it’s got everything, man. It’s got the desert, the mountains, and the ocean. It’s beautiful.” Chad Smith
You bet big time bud! The Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer nailed it with this quote. We are so lucky to be surrounded by everything he listed and so much more. Our downtown Healdsburg bed and breakfast is about an hour and a half from the big city of San Francisco, a 20 minute drive to beautiful Lake Sonoma, and a hour ride to the brilliant Napa County. There is so much to do that surrounds our downtown Healdsburg location. Most of which is within walking distance, or just a short car ride. If you’re a lover of Beer and Wine, then downtown Healdsburg has you covered. If you are looking for a place to dine with family, friends, or yourself, downtown Healdsburg is the perfect destination for you. This time of year might be the best time to come visit, the rain is almost ready to be just an after thought, while the sun and glorious spring weather is on the horizon. With all of this in mind, below is a list of some glorious events Healdsburg has coming up. Let’s jump right on in!

Earth Day Tour at Alexander Valley Vineyards
The next event that we think you should look into attending is the Earth Day Tour at Alexander Valley Vineyards. On Saturday April 13th, you can head over to this winery which is 10 minutes from downtown Healdsburg to take celebrate Earth Day! Elebrate Earth Month at Alexander Valley Vineyards with a special tour hosted by owner Harry Wetzel. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at the Wetzel Family’s commitment to sustainability. The family motto has always been “use less and have more.” Using that phrase as guidance, Harry Wetzel IV has taken the family commitment to sustainability to the next level and says quite simply, “it is the right thing to do. Minimizing our impact on the environment is not only good for us, but it’s healthy for everything around us as well.” You can join Harry on April 13 for a tour of the property for an in depth discussion of the many components of sustainability practiced for decades along with tasting the wines resulting from that commitment. This 1.5 hour tour will look at the environmental, economic, and social elements of sustainability that have been implemented since 1962 at Alexander Valley Vineyards.
