The Wine and Cheese Tasting at Williamson Wines was amazing! Walking around downtown Healdsburg, we stumbled upon this gem. We didn't have a reservation, I recommend having one, but we were lucky that they fit us in. It was $20 for four wines and a piece of cheese that went with each wine. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. The wines were fantastic! I really enjoyed the Rapture Pinot Noir and the Folly Melange. The cheese was delicious, and really brought out different flavors. Highly recommend!

We have been members of Williamson for over 10 years. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow. Not surprising at all given the quality and variety of their wines. All of the wines are super drinkable on their own yet Dawn and Bill are famous for their food and wine pairings. Their tasting room experience is friendly and fun, and then becoming a member you get access to their amazing club parties with food pairings, events, dinners, and more. Dawn, Bill, Sam are hands on and always present to welcome you and ensure you feel like part of their wine family.

I absolutely love this place. Small winery and when you do the tasting paired with food it’s incredible. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The wine maker and his wife are usually there and super approachable. If you’re new to wine or Sonoma county it’s a great stop.

I have been coming here for very many years, tastings have always been free, which I liked, because the wines are great and I have purchased a lot of wine here, this visit, I bought close to $500 of wines, and was so disappointed that they charged me a $25 tasting fee. How petty! They do not need my $25 dollars, I felt used and unappreciated. I think this is disrespectful for clients spending the kind of money I did.
So many wineries comp the wine tasting with purchase, a lot for one bottle purchased.
I won't be back, I feel used by a winemaker who does not appreciate his clients !

We received three referrals from other wineries and restaurants to try Williamson Wines. We were so excited to try their wines and sample yummy cheese.
The service was horrible! I reserved the tasting with cheese pairing. All my information was taken in advance over the phone and my credit card was charged before we arrived. Our server did not offer or share any information about the cheese pairings until I inquired during the second tasting. The cheese samples were tiny, but the upsell for the spices and wine was HUGE! Very pushy upsell to join the exclusive wine club and we felt very rushed to make a decision to join and then leave. So disappointed!

We had a wonderful wine and cheese pairing at this tasting room. With reservation only we enjoyed 5 wine samples paired with cheeses accompanied by jams, salts, and spices. This was a fun and entertaining way to learn about pairings and sample some very good wines. Our host, Peter, was engaging and knowledgeable. Definitely a highlight of a trip to Healdsburg.

Williamson Wines is a wonderful little place to stop in Healdsburg. Not only are the wines amazing but we love that they pair them with tailored recipes for you to bring home and enjoy. The staff here are very friendly and knowledgeable and make the entire experience something you want to come back and do again. We love bringing friends and family here anytime they come to town for a visit. Support your local small business during this time!

This has to have been one of the highlights of our week in Sonoma. The free wine and cheese pairings were simply amazing. We were quite impressed with the wines. We were also surprised to be served by the owner, who was very warm and welcoming. The recipes provided online paired with specific foods are something I will be looking forward to. Salud

We are a 50/60s couple that visit Napa/Sonoma wine country annually and have had many different tasting experiences at MANY different wineries. This was one of the best and absolutely the most unique. We first came in on a Monday afternoon and were served by Sarah, a very friendly and knowledgeable server. We prefer white, sparkling, and sweet wines and were at first disappointed that they didn't have anything sweet, but it didn't take long for us to realize that this visit was going to move us happily into tasting wines differently and enjoying the experience much more. We sat for 4 tasting, beginning with a wonderful Chantilly Chardonnay that we thoroughly enjoyed. This Chardonnay was free of the heavy oak flavor so we had grown accustomed to when tasting in this region. When paired the cheese and sweet beet and horseradish sauce provided the wonderful flavor of both the food and wine were enhanced, and we were hooked. Three other courses followed, this was called the "fridge foods and fine wines" tasting. I should add that there was no charge for this tasting of both food and wine. We decided to come back the next day and Sarah helped us redeem our Groupon coupon and schedule us an appointment for the next day at noon. We were introduced to our server for the next day, George, and he heartily welcomed us and assured that when we retuened the following day we would be tasting 6 foods paired perfectly with six wines and no lunch would be needed as this would be more than enough to satisfy. George was correct. The tasting was amazing, both food and wine that were paired perfectly together, and the exceptional service and attention given us by George. We talked with him about our tastes and previous experience with various wines. I have to admit we were both hesitant to try the "big reds" we had so long ago written off our list of favorites due to their heavy tanin tastes, and they dryness they always left after tasting. In the past the first thing we always did was reach for a bottle of cold water after tasting these type wines. Thanks to the fine winemaker at Williamson Wines and George's enthusiastic sharing of his knowledge of their wines and food we ventured through some beautiful Chardonnay, Viognier, and eventually all the way up to the "big red" Seduce Cabernet Sauvignon. We were pleasantly surprised that we both not only enjoyed each wine, but loved each wine. I can't really say enough good things about this wonderful experience. We joined the wine club and look forward to visiting on "pick-up days" to try even more wines and perfect food pairings. I highly recommend stopping in Healdsburg for a visit to Williamson Wines Tasting room, and thank both Sarah and George for wonderful tasting experiences, you won't be disappointed!

We visit Sonoma annually and shop our wines for the year as we have fallen in love with the wine and people in this area.. On our last day in 2012, we found the Williamson tasting room and wished we had found it sooner. The wines and pairings were outstanding, the passion and pride of the family members doing the tasting added to the experience. We have returned twice on this visit and have walked out without tasting or buying. We visited on Thursday and other than someone suggesting we move to the other side of the table because they were moving and stacking boxes near our table, no one approached us again, and we left after 20 minutes. We returned Saturday afternoon and worse than being ignored, we were chastised by one young man serving tables. He interrupted his presentation at a table to tell us to move back into the lobby the empty uncleared table in that room was reserved. We waited with other people only to be asked if we had an appointment and to be told how busy they were. Others (without appointments) were seated or directed to a place for tasting quickly (especially a group of young ladies!). Sadly we won't be adding Williamson to our wine clubs this year. Last year was such a joy and this year left a horrible taste on the proverbial palette!
