The Ferrari-Carano Winery is a must see in Healdsburg at Christmas time! Come along with me for a Festive day in wine country!

First, I decided to do my usual and grab a picnic lunch at Oakville Grocery then head off to my favorite vineyard spot for my last “picnic with a view” of the season. Healdsburg square is dressed up for the holidays and ready to go! It was beautiful with all the lights and the changing colors of the tree’s.

I was so happy that we decided to picnic! The sun was out and it wasn’t too cold and the vineyards colors were breath taking!

After the picnic we headed straight to Ferrari-Carano Vineyards. If you are going to be in town for the holidays-get yourself here! This is a great place to take large groups. Be aware that they don’t allow dogs  on the property and no picnicking in their gardens.

There’s a wall of plaques that show all the White House Luncheons that Ferrari-Carano wine was served.

This is so beautiful! The photos don’t do it justice! You can only get inside there through the tours but it was beautiful to take a quick look at.
