Our signature tour, Healdsburg Wine & Food Pairing Walking Tour, is something really unique. We are not a Wine Tour, nor a Food Tour. We combine the two by working with the winemakers and local food artisans and restaurant chefs to create pairings that will knock your socks off. We want to show you how easy it is to pair Wine & Food and hopefully when you return home, you'll have your own Wine & Food Pairing Party or create some new pairings on your own. Then we will know we've done job well done.

We had a great time with Herald. The experience was personal and fun. He clearly had great relationships with all of the owners of the wineries and he even stopped at a tea room for tea and chocolates. There truly was something for everyone!

Our Healdsburg Wine and Food Pairing Walking Tour with Harold was amazing. The food and wine pairings were both tasty and unexpected. Harold was awesome with his laid back personable style and exceptional knowledge of foods and wines in Healdsburg and Sonoma county. We plan to return and do the tour again in the fall. Thank you Harold. We had a wonderful day!!!!!
