Blue Cheese and Pear Food Pairing

Make your way to the Williamson Wines tasting room in downtown Healdsburg for your wine pairing experience. Meet your expert host. Choose from the following tasting options:

Icon Wine Tasting
Perfect for more seasoned wine tasters, the Icon tasting session lets you taste the winery’s most exclusive, exquisite wines. As you sip, learn from your host about how these smaller-production wines are made; with only the best fruit available using painstaking winemaking methods to ensure top-notch, unparalleled quality. Produced in smaller quantities and at higher production costs, Icon wines include the more exclusive versions of rosé, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and grenache.

Enhance the flavors and aromas of these wines by pairing them with the delicious bites listed above, all specially prepared by the in-house chef. The winemaker often joins in on this tasting session, providing a more in-depth and informative experience.

Legacy Wine Tasting
During this seated tasting session, you and your friends will enjoy a large range of the winery’s Legacy wines such as rosé, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and grenache. Learn about the creation of these small-batch, handcrafted wines, which are produced in quantities of less than 500 cases and are almost all bought exclusively by the wine club members.

Enhance the flavors and aromas of these wines by pairing them with bites prepared by the in-house chef. Food pairings may include locally made blue cheese, stuffed mushrooms, pears drizzled with honey and dark chocolate brownies. The winery owner and chef often stop by, so you’ll have a chance to meet and chat with them during your tasting.

This was a great education in wine and food pairing. We loved it. My only regret is that we don't live in the area near Williamson winery. We enjoyed their wines.

My wife and I had a great time! The wine was the best that we tasted during our 4 days in Sonoma and food pairings were right on target. Highly recommend this tasting.

Healdsburg is a great little town, and BONUS!! Also home to one of my favorite breweries, Bear Republic, which is walking distance from this tasting. Williamson Wines is a great little tasting facility, and the food pairings were phenomenal. Would recommend this to anyone who has not yet had the pairing experience, it is well worth it. Quality of food and wines is outstanding. Thanks for a great tasting experience!!

This was a great experience. We were expecting maybe some cheese and fruit to pair with our wine and instead got actual cooked food like chili and duck! Our host was super knowledgable and clearly passionate about what he does. I wish I lived closer so I could visit more often!

The Legacy Tasting was way above and beyond the average wine tasting experience! Not only was every taste expertly paired with delicious bites, but our host, Reese, was on hand to walk us through every varietal and why the components of each dish made it so complementary to the wine. He didn't rush us, spending a good amount of time talking about the tastes and answering our questions, all without the slightest air of pretentiousness. The winemakers, Bill and Dawn, also greeted us before the tasting and stopped in occasionally to add more insight on the wines and their favorite recipes to pair them with. The pours were generous and numerous and the food plentiful! After getting our fill of great wine, food and pairing knowledge, we walked out with our favorite bottle (the rose will surprise you!) and headed straight to the market for dinner ingredients to go with it. My boyfriend and I (and likely a few friends) will surely be back to try the Icon Tasting next with the reserve wines.

This was easily one of the best private tastings I've been too in the Sonoma area. The Williamson Wines tasting room is right in downtown Healdsburg, which is beautiful. Bill and Dawn, the owners of the winery, personally greeted us and talked to us during the guided tasting, which included pairings of small bites of gourmet food prepared in their kitchen by a professional chef. The pairings were specifically calculated to change the taste of both the food and the wine and bring out unique flavor combinations, the whole experience was really a treat! The wines themselves were fantastically crafted, with whimsical names that downplay the serious pedigree of their many local vineyards, and even some unique blends that you won't get in other wineries. All told, my girlfriend and I had a great time and will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the wine tasting and food pairing. One had the opportunity to learn about the wines and taste the food that can be served with the wine. The attendant was knowledgeable, friendly, and generous in his servings. We had a great experience. THANKS
