Winter is fast approaching, a good time to get cozy by the fireplace with a nice glass of Russian River wine. The harvest is complete and the vineyards are alive with brilliant color. We were again able to produce a barrel of 2011 zinfandel, and the 2010 is still in the barrel. It is tasting phenomenal! We were so pleased to receive a silver medal for our 2009 at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in June.
Once again we are running our Wonderful Winter Special and it is even better than ever: Stay two or more nights, Sunday through Thursday nights and receive 25% off your entire visit. Weekends, single nights and holidays at our already low winter rates.
This is a good time to visit the Wine Country, most of the tasting rooms remain open all winter, and have more time to spend with visitors. There are also many events happening in the Healdsburg area: healdsburg.com, to view all. A couple of our favorites:
“Strolling Dine Around” on December 7, 8, 14, and 15, is an opportunity to dine at four different restaurants, one course at each, on a single night. Book early, as it fills up fast. We’d love to see you then. Stay at the Raford Inn for the event and we will chip in $25 toward your dinner.
“Victorian Inns Tour”, on December 11, 2-4 pm, is a chance to view six Victorian-era Inns all decked out for the Holidays, including The Raford Inn.
Warmest wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones, from your friends,
