The Portalupi tasting room is a beautiful and unique expression of warehouse styling with a contemporary urban feel, located in the heart of downtown Healdsburg.
Portalupi offers a private event space, the Candela Room, named after the striking candle wall that embraces a cozy, wine cellar ambiance.
We invite you to use this space for private events such as: wedding celebrations, networking, Portalupi winemaker dinners, or a new take on the business meeting. We will do everything to make your event a memorable celebration.
