Gourmet Wine Country

Two new places for foodies to explore.


Published:

Nariko Reed

We already love Wine Country for its Michelin-starred dining and world-class wines. But there’s a new reason to make the drive: two hip food, art, and retail complexes. (Think San Francisco’s Ferry Plaza Building.)

The Barlow

A former apple cannery, this 12.5–acre site has several buildings filled with vendors.
Eat like a pig: At the new home of Zazu Kitchen and Farm, nosh on pork cheek sandwiches or boar burgers, and grab Black Pig Meat Co. salumi and bacon to go.
Adult beverages: Visit the tasting rooms of La Follette, Marimar, and Kosta Browne. If wine’s not your thing, try handcrafted gin and whiskey at Spirit Works Distillery.
Tasty tea: For a unique caffeine fix, visit the Guayaki Yerba Mate bar, and try a nutritionally rich drink made from South American rainforest holly leaves.
Beyond food: Bronze-casting and glass-blowing studios, and bocce.
200 Morris St., Sebastopol, (707) 824-5600, thebarlow.net.

Healdsburg Shed

The übergreen Shed (recycled steel siding, rain garden) is divided into a café, housewares and garden shop, and pantry of specialty artisanal food items.
Freshest ingredients: Grain, milled on location, is used in dishes served at the café, and is available for purchase. Or take home farmstead cheese, cured meats, olive oil, and jam.
Fermentation bar: On tap are wine, hard cider, beer, house-made kombucha, natural soda, and sparkling water. You can even find a kefir and shrub here, a Colonial American beverage made with concentrated fruit syrup.
Sunday supper: Make like the Italians, and join Shed for Sunday Supper the last Sunday of each month. Most Sundays also offer different workshops, such as cheese making or kimchee.
Beyond food: The Grange, a 2,750-square-foot space on the second floor, hosts art, film, and music events.
25 North St., Healdsburg, (707) 431-7433, healdsburgshed.com.
