This is my favorite tasting rooms in Healdsburg. I had requested this winery be added to our Wine Country Walking tour due to past experience. Deb was our host and she was fantastic. We tasted during the tour and Deb invited us back after our tour to taste some more wines. There were four couples and we all joined the wine club due to the quality of the wines and our experience. I highly recommend a visit to try the wines, the tasting fees are very reasonable and cheeses are included in the tasting.

Dear WJDMSP, I agree with you that Debbie is just absolutely W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L with people. She is very generous and interested in her customers. And I see that you liked the wines very much so thank you for mentioning that too! Just to let you know that every wine we produce has at least 2 GOLD MEDALS in the wine competitions this year. We can Stand up to any winery in the world!! Amazing to write this - it is a true accomplishment to say this. We look forward to your next visit, Skol, Nancy Walker

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!!!

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!

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!

Went to the winery in downtown Healdsburg for a tour. They were professional and pleasant, taught us about pairing wines with foods, but most importantly, the wines were fantastic. Our whole group agreed. We are now members of their wine club and are very very pleased with not only the wines but the support and care through the club.

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.

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

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.

Very accommodating and all the wines were wonderful. Quite a variety to choose from as well. I joined the wine club because I want to come back and enjoy all their wines. I love that the winemaker is female and I could tell all the thought put into the wine.

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.
