SF Markets/Smaller Wineries near Healdsburg

I'll be spending a little less than a week in the Bay Area/Sonoma in August and had some questions. 1) The only full day I'll have in SF is a Sunday, my friends have suggested going to the Ferry Building Marketplace even if the Farmer's Market isn't there that day. There is, however, the "Heart of the City Market" I read about in the nytimes which is open on Sundays (downtown civic area). With my other plans I will probably only have time to go to one, should I hit up the Ferry Building because it's worth seeing even without the farmer's market or should I head to the heart of the city market? I'm from NYC so it's not like elegant food shops or farmer's markets are a novelty for me. I want to go where it'll be quite special. 2) I'll then be heading to a friend's house in Healdsburg for the rest of my time. I'd like to take 2-3 wine tours at mid-sized or smaller, more intimate wineries in Sonoma. No offense to Mondavi at all, but I just don't feel like going to a factory-sized version of a winery. Any suggestions for great wineries?
