Although our Team members are all fully vaccinated we are required to wear a mask during our shifts. Cleaning safety protocols are still in affect; including but not limited to socially distancing, cleaning all furniture between guests and having our Team wash their hands frequently.

Lounge Standards

We recently remodeled the Lounge for seated indoor service. This helps provides adequate 6′ social distancing space when necessary.

Sonoma County’s Original Wine Tasting Lounge

Downtown Healdsburg, CA

In November 2004, Scott and Erica Lindstrom-Dake designed and built their first tasting room (aka the Lounge) which became the 7th tasting room in Downtown Healdsburg and the first – and ORIGINAL tasting Lounge. The comfortable, elegant, approachable, and friendly vibe made The  lounge the first of its kind. The concept was a hit and guests continued to ask for more thumbprint wines.


In 2009, the Original Lounge was relocated to its current location at 102 Matheson Street. The larger space, refreshed and updated look provides enough to room to accommodate events, yet maintains the intimate and eclectic atmosphere that Scott and Erica always intended.


With the difficulties and  uncertainties of 2020 behind us, we look forward to visiting with you all and seeing your smiling faces again. Sonoma County is experiencing extreme drought conditions. We will still provide water for you to hydrate while tasting unless you bring your own water bottle and request to save ours. We appreciate ALL of your continued support of thumbprint cellars and our amazing Team. (Pictures to follow)



We have ended our Friday Facebook Live tastings for now. You may still check out past tastings for fun and informative banter between Scott, Erica and our Top Fans. THANK YOU ALL for helping us get through this.

We look forward to visiting with you all again. Drink well, Stay Healthy!!!
