    Very nice winery excellent service
    The wine and cheese pairing is fun, but the vibe of the place really makes it special. The wines are good, and the service along with the conversation makes it so much more. Wine is best with food or company, and these wines pair well with both.

    Memorial Day Visit
    We had an amazing visit on May 27th. We stayed for an extended tasting with Debra. She really made sure we had a wonderful experience and that we understood the essence of all the varieties of wine we tasted. It was all amazing and I'm grateful I joined the club. It was THE BEST visit of our Healdsburg tour. I'm excited to see the new location on the next visit.
    Thank you, BPSintheATL, for taking time to tell us about your visit to our winery. We are happy to see that Debbie spoiled you with her special treatment. We are set up in our new location at 1500 Grove Street and we hope you visit us again soon. Tasting is in the barrel room amid 250 full wine barrels. Enjoy, your wines, Nancy Walker.

    Family friendly!
    fter joining a few other wine clubs prior to Stephen & Walker, I was stunned to find this winery and wish I had much sooner. On my first visit I met with Branden who was very knowledgeable on the wines and made sure to answer any questions I had. I especially enjoy bringing friends and family to try their wines, play games and relax. Their family and dog friendly environment are refreshing. Thank you for making this the place to be!

Stephen and Walker Winery is one of our absolute favorite wineries in the Napa and Sonoma area. We've been visiting their tasting room for nearly 12 years, with each visit better than the previous.

All of their wines are delicious but we are especially fond of their Howell Mountain Cab, Alexander Valley Carignane, and Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah.

We always find their tastings at their Healdsburg Tasting Room to be personal, intimate, relaxing, and fun! When you visit, ask for Debra who provides the best service in the business!

Stephen & Walker is really kind of a unique winery experience. You can almost miss it while walking in downtown Healdsburg (and honestly a small selfish side of me wishes you would so I always know I can find a seat for a tasting of their latest). If you did walk on by, you would miss some of the best wines in the area.

The tasting room is a modest retail space with comfortable furnishings and quirky art. Nancy Walker and Tony Stephen are the winemakers and had spent decades producing great wine for other labels before starting their own in 2004. It's not uncommon to have one of the owners or their sons pouring. The staff is amazing and make you feel at home immediately. I'm not able to get up there as much as I would like, but every time I go back I feel like I have been truly missed.

So, the people are awesome and if the wine was just okay, it would still be worthwhile to visit just for that customer experience. But the wine...

My god, the wine.

I've been a Pinot fanatic for over a decade and these guys produce several Pinot's that are in my top five. And their Cabs are legendary. Try their Howell Mtn. Cab and tell me I'm wrong. I dare you.

Honestly though, they don't produce bad wine. Their Syrah's, Zins, Carignane, Ports (and I don't even like port) are stunning - every one. I'm not really a regular white wine drinker but those are over the top as well. Their late harvest Chardonnay is a 'can't miss' for a friend of mine any time I'm looking for a gift.

I'm sure I sound a little too enthusiastic about these guys. The fact is, I walked into their tasting room almost ten years ago and was so blown away by their wines that I joined their wine club and have been a loyal member ever since. So, go there. Like now. Just promise to make some room for me when I'm able to make it back.

Dear smtdev, you have me tears of joy reading this note! You have confirmed everything that Tony and I have set out to do with our small, family winery. Yes we put our heart and soul into this and have been so fortunate to share this with our two adult sons. They were little kids when we started and have grown up doing everything side by side with us. I am so proud of everything and reading your note filled my heart to three sizes today!! God bless you and look forward to your next visit with us!! All lll the best to you! Nancy

We have been to Healdsburg from central Texas for 16 yrs in a row. The hosts at Stephen & Walker were stellar this year. We had a large group visit—they personalized our visit and we had several group members join their wine club. Their wines are great and we will be long time club members—I strongly recommend them!!!

We loved the reds. In particular, the Zins, the Cabs, and the blends. The tasting room is very comfy and Deb always makes us feel right at home. Deb is an absolute pleasure and and she is extremely knowledgeable. A total pro.

Our first trip to the Sonoma-region wine country included many vineyard/winery stops and tastings, but none compared to the gem of a tasting room off one corner of the Healdsburg town square.

We vowed not to join any clubs, but the quality of wine, inviting atmosphere of the shop, and warm reception of Debra and others changed our minds.

Visiting from Texas on three separate occasions over the last five years has only strengthened our commitment to the Stephen & Walker family.

Quality remains consistent and unmatched.

This is worth a stop if this region is in your wine-tasting path.

We had the pleasure of going to the tasting room this Sunday. Richard was our host and he was very gracious. He had so much knowledge about each wine and we learned a lot from the tasting. He was also very accommodating of our family. We really enjoyed ourselves.

I’m a local Sonoma County resident and this is my favorite winery. Over Thanksgiving, I brought my visiting brother, his girlfriend, my nephew and his fiancé here to do some wine tasting since they’d never been. They had a great time tasting all the various wines and loved the delicious cheese pairing. Our wine server (the winemaker’s son) was very friendly and knowledgeable. I discovered this place several years ago at a Wine Road tasting event and was wowed by all of their truly fabulous wine. There’s a relaxed, fun atmosphere and they’re perfectly located in downtown Healdsburg, within walking distance of all the restaurants and shops. I’d highly recommend stopping by and trying out all their award winning wines. It’s darn near impossible to walk out without purchasing at least two bottles!

Debra was such an amazing asset to have. She helped me find the perfect wine options for 40+ employees. The ordering and shipping process was seamless. Then...SNOWVID hit Texas and delayed all shipments. I was so nervous, but she was able to ease my nerves. THANK YOU Debra for everything. From picking the wine, getting it to our employees safe and hosting a very fun virtual wine tasting.

This tasting room has some of the best wines. Last year we become members and were visiting again this year to taste some of the new wines. We had the pleasure of having Walker as our host. He was fantastic!! We really enjoyed the tasting and his stories. I would highly recommend a stop here if you are in town.

I found the tasting room in Sonoma square cozy, not misleading. The people are genuinely nice and seem to enjoy being there along with knowing their craft. The wine was just wonderful --- and I don't like wine!! But they turned my head. I'm hoping to get back sometime.
