  • This downtown Healdsburg tasting room has a trendsetting city vibe.

  • A bit San Fran and a bit Manhattan.

  • A hole in the wall spot you stumble upon and suddenly you have a best kept secret.

  • No brand assault when you walk in. No big logos, flashy awards or merchandise on display.

  • I sat at the bar. It’s more like small trendy kitchen bar rather than a typical tasting room ‘bar’.

  • Usually, tasting rooms are designed for standing while you taste. I plopped myself down on a stool.

  • Idlewild is open until 7:00pm and you can also purchase wine by the glass.

  • This is quickly becoming a fav local spot.



  • $20 Per Person for a tasting.

  • Waived with 3 bottle purchase.

  • Most bottles are $30 or under.

  • The philosophy here goes back to the Italian way of life.

  • In Italy wine is not a luxury product it is a way of life.

  • Wine is not meant to be elitist or separatist.

  • Idlewild embraces the philosophy that wine is meant for all to share and enjoy!

Appointment Needed? 

  • Walk-ins welcome.

  • Open 7 days a week, 12:00 am-7:00 pm

  • Some food options are available to purchase. Salumi, cheese, olives and bread if you are craving a snack while you taste.
