Barrels Brews and Bites for Sips and Nibbles in Healdsburg

Healdsburg hybrid is somewhere between tasting room and restaurant

You’ll find a perfectly-curated boutique wine and brewery lineup along with tasty small plates at Healdsburg’s newest — well, we’re not sure what to call it. Cozier than a tasting room, but not quite a restaurant, owner Saunda Kitchen has created a hybrid that feels just right.

An alum of Eel River Brewing, she’s got a line on the latest releases, like Anderson Valley’s Framboise Rose Gose and the coveted Smith Story pinot noir available by the glass.

The “Trinity” menu features two healthy pours — a beer and a wine — along with a small bite like their “Lil Clucker” deviled eggs, a bitty basket of truffle fries or dark chocolate peanut butter ball for $20.

Explore their hidden gem wines, available by bottle or glass, crafty hyper-local beers along with flights of mimosas, and cheladas (beer and Clamato).  335 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg, 707-395-0487,
