Healdsburg/RRV Itinerary - Need Lunch Help

My wife and I will be visiting Napa (discussed on a prior post) and Healdsburg in 2 weeks. We have one full day in the Healdsburg area (staying at the Hotel Healdsburg) and two half days on the way in and out.

On our way into town, we have an appointment at Merry Edwards in the afternoon.

For the full day, was planning on visiting:
- MacPhail
- Joseph Swan
- Gary Farrell
(Yes, we're big pinot fans).

Any thoughts/suggestions on the winery front?

Also, we'll need to grab lunch at some point. I wouldn't mind a long leisurely lunch since we'll be driving ourselves that day and could use the break. We don't plan on visiting more than 3 vineyards so time shouldn't be an issue. Are there any picnic spots in the area, or any recommended sit-down restaurants?

  1. Many wine tasting rooms have picnic areas . If time another good one I enjoy is Benovia.
    Healdsburg has many good restaurants but I think that Barndiva best meets your desire for a long leisurely lunch. More casual and hopefully outdoors is the Healdsburg Bar and Grill. Both arnd the corner from your hotel. HBG run by owners of Cyrus.
