A sense for life


Get back
to your senses

Healdsburg is a place that has long called out for us to change our pace. It’s where we savor the wine, feel the breeze in our hair, or quietly observe the fog as it comes and goes over the ridge. We don’t want to rush through life and miss the best bits it has to offer. We take the time to connect with our senses, each other, and the beauty in the world around us. 


Journey for the senses

Life here is all about slowing down and taking the fun way around. So we sent a few visitors on an ultimate slow travel journey. For 30 days, they explored Healdsburg primarily on foot (or bike, or horse) to discover how inspiring travel can be when it’s all about the journey and who and what you connect with along the way. A unique sense for life.



Sense makers

Our sense makers are made up of a combination of the obvious – artisans, winemakers, tastemakers, craftspeople, friendly everyday locals and the not so obvious – the fog, the town plaza, the Russian River’s cool water on a summer's day… in other words, anyone or anything special that you encounter that will spark your senses and ground you in Healdsburg.
