Wine tasting: something of a catch-22.

You taste wine. You eventually get a sip of something you like (notes of boysenberry, philosophy and Wednesdays). And then... you’re out. Bye. Nothing more to see here. Maybe a bottle to take home or a monthly membership or something.

But you’re thirsty for more Wednesday now.

So meet Banshee Wines Tasting Room, a swirling beauty of a tasting room that’ll host you for an actual glass of wine with some actual chicken-liver mousse like you’re at an actual wine bar, now open in Healdsburg.

Just steps off the plaza, you’ll find it—an inviting, low-key room with beat-up leather couches, a record player and a random “El Pino Club” sign from a flea market. Looks like your artist friend’s Mission living room, minus the bongos.

So sit down. Taste wine. The specialty here is Burgundy-style pinot noir and chardonnay, so you’ll likely be sampling a few of those. But after that, they’ll pour you an actual glass of anything you like. And another. You can order some food made by the Shed—house-smoked trout, pork rillettes—and even flip through a bunch of old rock records, and tell ’em what you want to hear.

You get kind of demanding in wine bars.
