Barndiva is the celebration of all things local. They are driven by a simple desire to recognize the people behind Sonoma County’s agriculture. Designed and built in 2004, it has grown to become a unique destination for both casual and fine dining. Together the restaurant, and the building next door now called Studio Barndiva add more personality and conversation. Studio Barndiva is an art gallery in the day and a private event space at night. A throwback to the oddball irrepressibility that first inspired the family farm at Barndiva, The Gallery Bar is fine dining without the formality. These experiences elate the senses and help make Healdsburg a memorable place for food and wine.

Valette Healdsburg opened in 2015 by two brothers, Dustin Valette and Aaron Garzini. At their father’s house overlooking the Alexander Valley years ago, the two brothers dreamt about showcasing all that Sonoma County had to offer. Aaron was establishing himself as a dynamic server while Dustin was in New York learning the culinary craft that would be his lifelong passion. Now with a combined 47 years of experience, they serve honest food with a boutique selection of local wines in an impeccable service environment. The menu is rustic, eclectic and loaded with the freshest farm products from their neighbors in Healdsburg. Aaron and Dustin offer a place to share in the passion and dedication they have committed to their restaurant.
