How does a weekend in wine country with your best friends sound? If you are stuck in a routine, can’t get away from mom duties or simply just need a weekend to reset, you are in need of a girls getaway! Get your friends together to relax at the spa, drink world-class wines and soak up the serenity of Healdsburg, California!
Now, let’s plan your trip. Once you get the official “I’m in!” from the girls, pull out your computer and let’s start resort searching. We recommend booking your stay at the elegant, authentic, charmed hotel, Montage Healdsburg. Immerse yourself in the 258-acres of vineyards, oak trees and rich agriculture. Enjoy wine tastings, smores by the fire, nature, spa treatments, or a drive-in movie, all within steps from your room.
Start your trip off with an evening of self-care at Spa Montage. Their service menu is full of nature-inspired treatments, featuring anti-aging facials, full-body massages and more. Rejuvenate your body in one of 11 treatment rooms while soaking in soothing baths, steam rooms, and various relaxation areas. After your treatments, soak in the zero-edge, adult-only pool while sipping on some cocktails with your friends.
The spa has been nice, but you girls are in a wine country and now, it’s time for wine. Head out to Marine Layer for an evening with the girls! This modern venue on the historic Healdsburg Plaza serves up delicious wines and light bites, perfect for a social hour. Enjoy an exploration of five limited wines, featuring Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all from the Sonoma Coast. After your tasting, indulge in a thoroughly crafted mezze plate made from nearby Little Saint. A few glasses in, reminisce on your group memories together and agree that this trip was much needed.
Start your Saturday with some morning mindful yoga at Montage’s Sundrenched Vineyard Lawn. When finished, roll up your mats and head on over to the Country Store for some grab-and-go coffee, juices, pastries or breakfast sandwiches. Eat and unwind from your peaceful class.
To get the traditional wine tasting experience, we recommend booking a tour at Quivira Vineyards. Check their events page to see if anything catches your eye while you are visiting, otherwise book one of their group tastings. During your tasting, soak in the breathtaking views of Mount St. Helena, farm hill vineyards and gardens. But wait, your day doesn’t end there! Before dinner, stop by Roof 106 for cocktails with an incredible rooftop view. This elevated cocktail lounge is just what you and the girls need to start your night. Try original, adventurous cocktails and classic wines as you enjoy the open-air and views of the plaza. For dinner, head downstairs to The Matheson to try seasonally prepared, creative dishes handcrafted by Chef Matt Brimer. His menu explores everything from land to sea. Some of the local favorites are their bread and housemade salted butter with Heirloom tomatoes, the Corn Finished American Beef, and the Yellow Peach Crisp.
Have a slow Sunday morning, order breakfast to the room and soak up the last bit of the amazing room at the Montage. Hit the pool one last time and relax in a private cabana before checking out. For your last meal, make a stop at PizZando for lunch, followed by Noble Folk Ice Cream.
A weekend getaway to Healdsburg with your closest friends will make you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and reenergized! Head home with your favorite bottle of wine, or a case, and everlasting memories. Whether you are looking for food and wine to endless relaxation, Healdsburg has a place for you. That’s Healdsburg happy!
