Doug was a fantastic host. He shared great intel about each the wines in our flight. We learned about grapes, barrels, and soils. He also had amazing descriptions for each wine. He topped off our visit with a complimentary spiced wine. It was delish! We will visit again.

My husband and I had a great time at Spicy Vines. We were served by Chrystalyn, the owner, and you can tell she has a passion for what she does. We did the flight tasting and enjoyed them all. The tasting room is cute and the shaded patio was perfect for sipping wine. We'd visit again.

Spicy Vines, besides have some great wines, has live entertainment on a regular basis. The place is great for hanging out, drinking some wine and having a couple small plate options. The service is very personal and attentive. We regularly go to see a favorite duo and enjoy the wine, atmosphere and music.

The folks at Spicy Vines are fantastic! Prompt and friendly service from start to finish. The wines are great, I particularly enjoyed their Pinot Noir and my wife likes their Rose'. We came for the music. They have music quite often and really like the Saturday night bands or duets. Overall, I would heartily recommend their wines, food, and music. Plus it's a real friendly place to hang out!

The Noise level was loud because of the house band. Which is why you go at night. Great Sangria and great hosts. Thanks Dougy Fresh and Crystalyn! Great Wine as well!

Had a wonderful experience at Spicy Vines. The owner spent time sharing the details of their wines and sharing the history behind each of their blends. The wine was fabulous and you have to try their signature spicy wine but there wasn't one wine I didn't like and I am picky. I would definitely go back and will tell all my friends about the wonderful experience.

This place is such a gem. You can easily make a meal out of their small plate menu (we did with four people), and their wines are outstanding. The "flight" wine menu is a great deal, and the wine are outstanding. The winemaker was our server and we'd go back in a heart beat, in a town with lots of great food (and wine)!

This is a very casual place with a few small bites, wines, cocktails, and beer in the wine country. We went to have a small bite and listen to some music. From 7-10PM Saturday evening there is a live band which was good. A few people spontaneously got up and danced. Service was attentive and pleasant.

Was attracted by the promise of live music and SV did not disappoint. Great music and really nice wines by the glass and by the bottle. Service was spot on and we enjoyed a really nice evening. If up to me, I would ditch the table in the middle and put in more couches and chairs, but that's just me.

Not what we thought it would be by the reviews. We wanted dinner after a long day of wine tasting. Menu had 3 items, all small plates. We knew something was wrong when we were seated on sofas in the corner. Hostess was understanding but we left. This is a wine bar with not much to offer in the way of food.

This was our first trip to Healdsburg and Spicy Vines did not disappoint! The service was wonderful, the food was exactly what we wanted (prosciutto and pesto paninis) and let’s not forget about the wine - each one we tried from our flight was unique and flavorful in its own way! The sangria and Spicy Vines original blend were our favorites. We loved hearing the story behind each one and will definitely be back to visit next time we’re in the area.

Located a couple of blocks north of Healdsburg Square, this hip eclectic wine tasting hangout is one of only two places in ALL Of Healdsburg that offers late night, live music with no cover charge. Grilled paninis and vanilla bean ice cream with an amazing chocolate cherry sauce are a few of the quick bites you can have while sipping strong and delicious Spicy Vines signature wines. Ther band who played was folksy with a lead singer somewhere between Adele and Joan Baez. They were great! Highly recommend this place for non-traditional FUN!

We went to hear the duet that was playing and were very pleased at the atmosphere. The one hostess was not terribly on top of things, taking our wine order, then not bringing it. Then bringing us our food and still no wine for the next 10 minutes until we waived at her. At last she remembered!
Great spot for meeting friends, listening to music. Wines okay.

Went to Sonoma for a fun weekend. Visited about 6 places, and Spicy Vines was, by far, the best! I like my wines spicy, dry, and full of flavor. There wasn't a single wine I disliked.

I am so very disappointed with Spicy Vines. We made our reservations early in the morning before we started our drive thru the wine country. We were so nervous that we were going to miss our reservation due to traffic that we sped a bit and made it to the door with 3 minutes to spare, reservations were at 12:00 and we made it by 11:57. Only to find a note on the door that said, "Be back at 12:30"!! 12:30? Our reservations were for 12:00. Obviously they had our email address as I had marked the box that says "Do you want to be able to have the restaurant contact you? I am sooo not happy. We did end up going down the street and had a nice lunch, but it still leaves a poor memory on a special day!

We had a reservation there. My friend noticed the tasting bar table smelled like old sponge. She told the girl. We were the only ones in there with our reservation at 5. We finally ordered our drinks because we couldn't decide. The drink was good but they had run out of ice or the machine broke so it took a while. Then we ordered a charcutterie platter, that took about 1/2 hour or longer. It was good because we were hungry but just disappointed. We've got sangrias there to go before, they don't even have that anymore. The band was starting to play which is why we wanted to stop there but we ended up leaving because we decided to go elsewhere. not sure I'd go back again for awhile.

Part lounge, part tasting room, part art gallery... the Spicy team has created a wonderful vibe! Laid back and sophisticated at the same time. Friendly, knowledgeable and hip! There is a large communal table (bar height) in the center, ringed by small tables, sofas, cocktail tables, etc. Also a barrel room which looks like it would be great for private events. We went for the live music Saturday night. Everyone who came was really impressed with the space, and the wines. Great to see some young entrepreneurs distinguish themselves in what is a crowded market. Oh, and the wines were impressive too. Great Zins and we fell in love with the Syrah. We will be back for sure!

This is a great tasting room. We went and saw live music and drank delicious wine. The sangria was super yummy as was their Chardonnay and Syrah. They serve cheese and cracker plates fruit plates that kind of thing. These were very good. Doug and Crystal Lynn are so friendly and welcoming. I joined the wine club and left with 6 bottles of wine. Great experience.
