Just got back from enjoying a wonderful weekend at Wine Barrel Tating in Healdsburg,CA. I was also celebrating my birthday which was an added celebration. What made out trip to Healdsburg the best weekend in all the years to coming to wine country was out stay at Bella Villa Messina. My husband and I can't say enough about the excellent hospitality by owners Jerry and Harold. Not only did we have a beautiful room to stay in and enjoy the beautiful view from their Villa their attention to detail was absolutely wonderful. Our first day there was the aroma of breakfast being made by Jerry. He is a master at making people feel at home and also an expert at wines in that area. We got a list from him and every one of the wineries was everything he said it would be. Otherwise it would be hit and miss for my husband and I and we saved so much time going to the aboslute best wineries in that area. We would definitely stay again with Jerry after we swore we would never go to another bed and breakfast again. The Bella Villa Messina is beautiful and very quiet with beautiful scenery surrounding all sides. It is a must for those who want to feel special and enjoy a nice weekend away from home.
