Tertulia at Amber Ridge – where good friends and family gather in stunningly beautiful, peaceful surroundings to enjoy each other’s company over great food and wine. Deep relaxation, pleasant conversation, laughter and joy ensue! Tertulia is a fabulous two-acre Wine Country sanctuary surrounded on all sides by vineyards as far as the eye can see, with views of the foothills in the distance.
The elegant main home is a 4br/3ba, nearly 4000 sq. ft., two-story, gated estate with central heat/AC, a spectacular gourmet kitchen, abundant high end architectural details and custom finishes, fine furnishings, and the entire home is floored in honed hickory hardwood made even more comfortable with the addition of beautiful area rugs. The accommodations can also include ($250/night w/ an additional $50 cleaning fee) a lovely, spacious 1br/1ba loft above the 3-car garage, with lovely attached bathroom below. The extensively landscaped 2-acre grounds with in-ground pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, dramatic outdoor dining area and large gas firepit are surrounded by vineyards on all sides including those that produce a famed Kosta Browne Pinot Noir.
This beautifully appointed home offers the best of both worlds. Enjoy the spectacular setting of Tertulia as well as the fabulous dining, wine tasting, galleries, and shops of charming, historic, upscale Healdsburg - the “crown jewel” of Sonoma County’s Wine Country, only 5 miles to the north. This very special home is located in the heart of Sonoma County- the “Tuscany” of Northern California - with Napa valley just over the hills to the east.
Imagine awakening to the cool tranquility of an agrarian setting among the vines. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea from a rocking chair on a shady porch overlooking luscious landscaping, manicured vineyards and the hills beyond as hot air balloons drift silently by overhead. Contemplate your day’s agenda – perhaps planning meals to make the best use of fresh offerings from Tertulia’s garden planters or a local farmer’s market, or maybe plotting your path to a winery or two before your coveted dinner reservation at a Healdsburg restaurant or a meal prepared by, or for, your group in the generous chef-friendly indoor and outdoor kitchens.
When afternoon arrives, like clockwork, notice the afternoon breezes that clear the warm air before sunset. As evening falls slowly, gather on the patio to watch the sun fade along with the din of conversation. You might choose to dine al fresco at the majestic redwood slab table under the shelter of two ancient black walnut trees. And to end your day, unwind in the pool and spa as you gaze at the stars above – so bright in the dark night sky removed from the city lights. This is Tertulia at Amber Ridge.
A 5-mile drive along the tree-lined back roads brings you across the quaint Veterans Memorial Bridge to charming and historic Healdsburg surrounded by the three famed wine growing regions, Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian River Valleys. This wonderful and eclectic community recently celebrated its 150th anniversary and has grown from a tranquil agrarian center to a top travel destination featuring fine dining, art, and antique galleries, specialty shops, spas, and a variety of interesting activities concentrated around the mature redwood tree-lined, central Plaza with fountain and gazebo. The surrounding areas are also rich with opportunities for hiking, biking, golfing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, ballooning and exploring the beautiful northern California coast and redwoods.
With so much to do and so many things to see, you may want to extend your vacation plans for as long as you can, to take it all in and have a truly memorable and magical Healdsburg holiday.
Our guests are also welcomed at Healdsburg’s premier Parkpoint Swim & Health Club with a heated lap pool, aqua aerobics pool, children’s pool, as well as all the workout equipment and exercise classes you can enjoy, and day passes are available for purchase.
