Conveniently located in Historic Downtown Healdsburg, the thumbprint cellars Lounge offers a relaxed vibe. Our extraordinary wines are crafted exclusively using Sonoma County grapes.


102 Matheson Street, Healdsburg, CA 95448

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.


2020 certainly thrown us a few curve balls. Over our 20 year as a family owned and operated business we have learned to Dodge, duck, dip, dive and Dodge. “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball” and we had some pretty big wrenches thrown our way in 2020! We look forward to hearing about all your dodges that helped you make it through 2020 when we reopen.


In the meantime, please stay connected with us each Friday at 5:30 PST on Facebook Live while we taste through thumbprint wines and talk about whatever comes to mind!

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