Jim Cantwell Villa Passalacqua Winery

Has anyone visited the Passalacqua Winery? I would be interested in comments on Healdsburg, the Passalacqua Wine and local restaurants.

Many thanks,

Jim Cantwell

Your buddy Janis lives in California as I recall; perhaps she'll be kind enough to answer your question...you can hope anyway.

Hi Jim, I can't comment on that particular winery, but you're talking about my favorite Northern California wine neighborhood. There are hundreds of small wineries (and some not so small ones) in the area, and you can easily spend days exploring. Healdsburg is a fun little town with lots of charming places to stay and some great restaurants.

www.wineroad.com is a website with a great clickable map for discovering the most appealing places for you to visit.

I'm not aware of any Healdsburg area wineries with accomodations, but there are a few in the Paso Robles area.
Dunning Vineyard hasa guest villa and Zenaida Cellars has a B&B. I thin Summerwood also haa a B&B and maybe Justin.

I've been to Passalacqua and even have a baseball cap from them.

It's so hard to talk about the wines of any particular winery. So much depends on the wine, the year of production, and the individual tastes of the winedrinker. Generally, Passalacqua's wines are good.

Healdsburg itself has a number of tasting rooms around the central square as well as a short walk/drive away. If you click on the wineroad link that Grasshopper has linked to and then click on "maps", then "Healdsburg", you'll get a balloon-filled map to show you the locations of the various wineries in Healdsburg itself. The wineroad maps also show the wineries in the surrounding valleys. If you will have a car, I strongly suggest that you visit other wineries outside the town of Healdsburg. Depending on what time of year and which day of the week you are planning to visit, it would be best to check and make certain that the wineries you are interested in will be open or may need a reservation for off-peak visits.

This isn't meant to be snarky at all, but I am curious as to why you put your name at the beginning of your subject line. I didn't respond to another post on which I could have been helpful because I thought you were either a commercial poster or that you were offering information rather than seeking it.

ackislander: Something weird does seem to be going on here (and risking Dukey's wrath) . . . jimcantwell is asking about Villa Passalacqua - and jimpassalacqua who registered the same day is asking about Cantwell Villa on the Europe board. Now that is a coincidence

He's interested in a winery in California with a name like a Villa where he lives. Not so bizarre.

I thought, what a smart way to promote his business without being kicked, but I may be wrong.

maybe so - but that doesn't explain 'jimpassalacqua' asking about Cantwell Villa.

Mayhaps the two jim's are the same person??
