Event Description:

Tickets to Tastemakers' Weekend!

Get to know the Tastemakers of Healdsburg during this first ever Tastemaker Weekend! We’ve put together an enticing list of hands-on Healdsburg experiences with everything from an authentic Italian wine cave dinner to a pastry making class at a popular local bakery with a history reaching back almost a century. Hone your wine blending skills with a winemaker-led class, explore our stunning countryside on a guided trail run or hunt for garden treasures in a foraged floral design class at an organic flower farm. A portion of each ticket price will go to the Healdsburg High School’s culinary program to support Healdsburg’s future Tastemakers.
