Wine Country Acoustic - winecountryacoustic
Welcome to the online home of Wine Country Acoustic. Historically, we've been sponsoring house concerts every other year in connection with the Healdsburg Guitar Festival. Past concerts have featured Larry Pattis, Steve Wildey, Dorian Michael and Kenny Blackwell, Chicago blues artist Nicholas Barron; guitar virtuosos Antoine Dufour and Michael Chapdelaine, and most recently, singer songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov.
On August 10th, 2013, we'll be hosting "An Evening with Kelly Joe Phelps," an extraordinary singer-songwriter who has garnered international acclaim. This concert will again be hosted in the private, enclosed courtyard of our Santa Rosa home, affectionately known as "The Lodge at Hidden Hills."

There is limited parking available at the residence. Once the spaces are full, you'll need to park at the cul de sac at the bottom of the drive and walk up.

Absolutely! We will provide a selection of wine, beer, water and coffee.
