Healdsburg Itinerary - Thoughts/Suggestions

stevo333 | Jun 23, 2011 07:23 PM

Mid 30's couple - 10th anniv trip. 1st time to SF and wine country. Trying to fill a few holes in trip.

I'd appreciate thoughts/comments/suggestions to fill in the gaps and I'm not married to many of the wineries, going of research and suggestions of friends in the wine industry.

Also making an attempt to take it a little slower (thus only 2-3 wineries per day). Am I on the right track to relax, but still take in a good chunk of what SF/Sonoma have to offer?

Arrive in San Fran on Saturday Morning
Staying at Clift
Thinking about checking out Ferry Bldg Marketplace and shopping around Union Square and a photo opp at GG Bridge
Dinner at RN74 saturday night

Have an appt at Siduri at 2pm
Looking for a decent/affordable lunch stop around Santa Rosa before tasting
Downtown Wines in Healdsburg Plaza in late afternoon
Staying at H2
Open for dinner

Merry Edwards in the am
Gary Farrell in the pm
Thinking about grabbing lunch at Willow Wood Cafe in Graton and heading to Mishon for tasting/lunch - Any other suggestion for lunch or 3rd winery?

A Raffanelli in the am
Fritz and Dutcher Crossing for lunch/pm OR Ferrari Carano (more interested in the estate/gardens than the wine)

Dinner: Willie's; Zin or Ravenous (would prefer to keep it lower key after my wallet gets the cyrus bill!)

Unti in the am
Papapietro Perry for lunch tasting (grabbing picnic at Oakville)
Nalle in the pm
Dinner at Barndiva

Flight back home isn't until 5:30. Thinking about an early tasting and then heading back to SF or getting to SF early and having a nice lunch somewhere.
