Hotel Healdsburg and Jordan Vineyard & Winery–both finalists in the 2015 Sunset Travel Awards–are proud to announce the “Farm to Fork Culinary Journey,” the ultimate getaway for foodies and wine enthusiasts, taking place in the heart of Sonoma County for the second year in a row. Launching in June, this memorable package includes a two-night stay at the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg in the heart of downtown Healdsburg, an epicurean excursion across Jordan Winery’s impressive estate, and a special farm-focused dinner for two at Hotel Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Kitchen restaurant featuring ingredients from Jordan’s garden.
“Following last year’s success, we’re so pleased to again offer this one-of-a-kind package,” said Circe Sher, partner and marketing director at Hotel Healdsburg. “The Farm to Fork Culinary Journey showcases Jordan’s exquisite estate and elegant wines paired with the culinary creations of the new Executive Chef of Dry Creek Kitchen, Andrew Wilson. Coupled with the well-appointed accommodations of Hotel Healdsburg, this is a true luxury getaway for the summer season.”
Guests will experience the new Jordan Estate Tour & Tasting and journey beyond the walls of the winery chateau on a guided tour of the breathtaking vineyards, vistas, chef’s garden and more. Jordan Estate is one of the few properties in Northern California wine country with more than 1,000 acres of contiguous land that is navigable by vehicle, owned by a private individual and able to be explored by consumers for the first time through this tour. As part of the estate tour experience, guests will ride to remote destinations to experience wine and food in the countryside where they’re grown and enjoy tastings of multiple Jordan Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon vintages, Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil and an array of farm-fresh delicacies from the winery’s chef. The tour, which begins its second full season May 1, 2015, runs for three hours and is available Thursday through Monday, starting at 9:45 a.m.
Following their tour of Jordan, guests will return to Hotel Healdsburg and enjoy dinner for two at Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen, renowned for its progressive American cuisine featuring simple and elegant seasonal recipes. A special four-course menu prepared by Dry Creek Kitchen’s Executive Chef Andrew Wilson will feature ingredients from Jordan Winery’s garden and farm, some of vintner John Jordan’s favorite DCK dishes and Jordan wine pairings.
“The idea behind our Estate Tour & Tasting is to immerse guests in Sonoma County’s food and wine culture in just three hours,” said John Jordan, CEO of Jordan Vineyard & Winery. “On one level, that means eating the food that grows here and drinking the wine we make while outdoors. On another level, it means walking through working gardens and vineyards, seeing wildlife and experiencing hilltop views that give this part of wine country a real sense of place.”

- Two nights of luxury accommodations at Hotel Healdsburg
- Two tickets to Jordan Winery’s Estate Tour & Tasting.
- Exclusive four-course dinner for two at Dry Creek Kitchen with wine pairings featuring Jordan’s bottle selections.
