Explore Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley
Our suggestions for crafting the perfect weekend
FridayPick up a room key at Hotel Healdsburg (from $385; hotelhealdsburg. com), a modern antidote to Wine Country’s typical Victorian fluff.
Stop in at Spoke Folk Cyclery (bike rentals $10 per hour; 201 Center St.; 707/433-7171) for advice on routes and to rent a bike if you didn’t bring one.
Pedal out to Dry Creek Vineyard (tasting from $5; 3770 Lambert Bridge Rd.; drycreekvineyard.com) for a glass of Heritage Zin from the first family to put in grapes after Prohibition.
Back in town, you’ll find great housemade pasta at Scopa ($$; 109A Plaza St.; 707/433-5282).
