A great ‘home base’ for exploring the diversity of Sonoma County’s ‘Tuscany’ of Northern California, travel west into the Dry Creek Valley and enjoy the many world class wineries with Lake Sonoma’s recreation area just beyond. Minutes to the east lies the Alexander Valley wine growing region, a few miles south the western Russian River Valley vineyards, and yet VineHaven is only minutes from historic upscale Healdsburg’s Plaza with abundant fine dining, tasting rooms, art galleries, shops and more.
