I know it’s a bit early to say this but I think Portalupi is my favorite place to taste wine in Healdsburg. Strollable to all the action in downtown Healdsburg, Portalupi is a spot you want to return to again and again. The tasting room is like a lounge where you can relax on velvet sofas and savor your tasting. Jane and Tim, a husband and wife winemaking team, are entertaining hosts taking you through their local lineup of delicious wines that embrace their Italian heritage. Their lineup is like a good Italian meal; it begins with a light crisp chilled white blend that whets your appetite, a few velvety rich reds fill your mouth, and a sweet bold port tops it off. You leave feeling well fed and relaxed.
