Spend a Flowery Weekend in San Francisco

A mini getaway to norcal can guarantee both wine and flowers

Attention, NorCal road-trip aficionados: An ideal weekend escape can now be had in Healdsburg, thanks to Joan and Walt Flowers, founders of Flowers Vineyards & Winery. Replete with a hospitality house designed by San Francisco–based firm Walker Warner Architects (of Menlo Park’s Coffeebar), the 15.5-acre resort-like estate includes a winemaking facility (deploying 100 percent native yeast and minimal intervention), an outdoor wood-fired oven, and an educational culinary pairing program headed up by chef Jamil Peden of Campo Fina and Woodfour Brewing.
