Located on the quaint and stylish, tree-lined Healdsburg Plaza in northern Sonoma County, Seasons of the Vineyard has been completely renovated to accommodate a relaxed, sit-down wine tasting experience. Highlights of the remodeled interior include a 20-foot tasting bar with a Vettrazo Amber sustainable countertop made from used bottles and old windows, a one-of-a-kind rod iron chandelier with hanging, lit Italian glass wine jugs that suspends over the tasting bar, newly-exposed floor-to-ceiling brick walls, and a beautiful, original tin ceiling of the restored building, circa 1833.
Visitors may choose from various wine tasting options. Wine flights of Ferrari-Carano, PreVail and Lazy Creek Vineyards Classic and Limited Release wines, as well as cheese pairings featuring hand-selected, seasonal artisan cheeses from local purveyors will be featured. Plans to include future food pairings showcasing specialty chocolates and imported Italian delicacies such as bruschetteria, cured olives, local breads and other local fare are being considered.
In addition to wine tasting, Seasons of the Vineyard is a shopper's paradise, offering unique home décor and gifts so that visitors may take a little bit of wine country living home - home décor such as decorative lamps, beautiful wine country artwork and mirrors, ceramic tableware, linens, and imported vases and decorative pieces, to name a few.
Says owner Rhonda Carano, "I wanted to create a stylish, unique space - a relaxed atmosphere visitors can discover and where friends can meet to shop and taste some difficult-to-find wines they might not otherwise have access to, along with showcasing foods from local, artisan producers. Friends...family...wine...food...our wine country living philosophy is based on these things."
Ferrari-Carano's Seasons of the Vineyard is open Sunday - Thursday, 10am - 6pm, and Friday - Saturday, 10am - 7pm, and is located at 113 Plaza Street, Healdsburg, CA, (707) 431-2222, www.seasonsofthevineyard.com
