Boisset Taste of Terroir

Ancient Burgundies and New World pinots rub elbows at this metro-chic Healdsburg Tasting Room

BiteClub’s still floating on bubbles after a visit to the new Boisset Taste of Terrior tasting room on the Healdsburg Square. Located in the former Gallo space (company head Jean-Charles Boisset is married to Gino Gallo), it’s been transformed into a metro-chic tasting room with tons of designer schwank.
But rather than thumbing its nose at everyday tasters, the spot features a huge variety of affordable Burgundies, whites and Russian River pinots from DeLoach (now-owned by the Boisset family), Bouchard Aine & Fils and Louis Bouillot in the accessible $15-$40 range as well as some nifty grand crus usually reserved for high end restaurants (and Boisset’s close friends).
Tastings flights start at a thrifty $8 and climb to hefty $100 for a grand cru tasting. Think Old World meets New World in Philippe Starck ghost chairs.
