2. Stay and Play in Healdsburg with LANDO and Spottswoode


Proprietors Sam Lando and Beth Novak have joined together to offer a one-of-a-kind trip for three couples to Napa and Sonoma wine country. Located 67 miles north of San Francisco, Hotel Healdsburg encompasses the simplicity and charm of Sonoma wine country. Set on the western edge of Healdsburg’s historic town plaza, guests can enjoy some of the world’s finest vineyards, restaurants, and shops within minutes of the front steps. Beautifully appointed guest rooms, country gardens, pool, and luxurious spa will provide the perfect retreat for you to return to each evening.  

The Novak family has been growing grapes on their historic Spottswoode Estate since 1972 and making wine since 1982. As caring and responsible stewards of their land – as illustrated by their organic, biodynamic, and regenerative organic certifications, plus deep engagement in so many other environmental initiatives – they pursue an elegant, balanced, and age-worthy style that captures the character of the vintage and the complexity of the legendary estate vineyard.  

After 10 vintages, LANDO Wines has become a sought after, boutique producer of highly allocated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. They focus on producing wines with fresh fruit, intensity, and elegance… wines they enjoy drinking and sharing with friends.   

Spend the day amongst the vines with private tours and tastings at LANDO Wines and Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery before joining Beth and the Landos for a dining experience you won’t soon forget. Paired with wines hand-selected by your hosts from their personal cellars, allow yourself to be wined and dined at the ever-indulgent The Matheson Restaurant with the help of chef and owner Dustin Valette. Plan your trip for the third week in June and join Beth and the Spottswoode team for their annual and ultra-exclusive Garden Party. 

Take home a special magnum from each winery to enjoy with friends and family for years to come.
