Located at 125 Matheson Street, Topel Tasting Room is one of Healdsburg’s most popular wine tasting destinations, attracting visitors from afar and locals who return time and time again. Come taste with us and bring your dog! While you sip wine, Fido or Fifi will enjoy water and treats because we’re dog friendly!
All Topel wines are handcrafted using the finest organically grown fruit from our own Estate vineyards and from exclusive vineyards cultivated by respected growers in other prime appellations. At Topel Tasting Room, you can sample our complete portfolio of current releases, as well as a selection of library wines. Tasting fees ($8 for standard flights and $10 for a flight of reserve wines) are waived with purchase (one waiver per person).
Decorated in warm wood tones and sporting clean architectural lines, Topel Tasting Room features a traditional tasting bar, tall cocktail table seating and windows that open to the lively Healdsburg street life. Videos showing a collage of photos representative of life in the vineyards, at the winery, and in the tasting room are played on a state-of-the-art video screen in an alcove with casual seating.
A smaller side room with sliding glass doors allows for private, sit-down tastings of limited edition and library wines with Donnis or Mark as host. The sense is organic and first-rate — a mirror image of the handcrafted, artisan Topel wines to which this tasting room pays homage.
The Topel Tasting Room staff is comprised of energetic, hospitable wine educators, eager to share their knowledge and passion for wine. They are there to serve you daily, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and sometimes even later!
Gracious hospitality caters to colorful events and celebrations, including an annual September anniversary party, a “Love & Meritage” blending party on the weekend closest to Valentine’s Day and “Dogtoberfest,” which is held on or near Halloween. Topel Tasting Room is an active member of The Wine Road (www.wineroad.com) and participates in Winter Wineland (January), Barrel Tasting (March) and Wine & Food Affair (November), among other festive events.
Topel Tasting Room is also committed to supporting the Healdsburg community. It sponsors the Healdsburg Jazz Festival and has served as a venue for smaller and more intimate musical performances during the week-long event. A second-label wine produced by the Topels helps provide financial support for the Healdsburg Educational Foundation. And its nationally famous Topel Wine Tails Calendar, featuring photos of cats and dogs from Topel customers and fans from around the world, is an annual fundraiser for the Healdsburg Animal Shelter.
Topel Tasting Room is one of the most pet-friendly establishments in Wine Country, so whether you’re mobile on two legs or four, the door is always open.
