Ready to Sparkle? Breathless Wines to Open Soon in Healdsburg

Take time to unwind and enjoy a flight of sparkling wine at the Breathless Wines garden patio and tasting lounge opening this fall 2016 in the new Healdsburg Warehouse District, west of downtown and next door to Rack & Riddle.

With over 25 Best of Class, Gold medals and 90-point ratings between its three wines, Breathless has been making a mark in Sonoma County since its founding a few years ago by three sisters.

“Breathless is about celebrating moments in life—big or small—that take our breath away,” says Sharon Cohn, Breathless sister 1-of-3. “We are honoring our mom, Martha, who encouraged dreaming big—‘never take a breath for granted, and live life to the fullest’ was her mantra.” Even when suffering from Alpha-1, Martha led the charge as a teacher, dedicated to helping her community.

In that vein, Breathless donates wine and funds to Alpha-1 and over a dozen non-profits annually. The new tasting room will be used by non-profit partners for educational events open to the public.

With a vintage 1920s feel, Breathless is poised to be Healdsburg’s premier tasting room featuring Champagne method sparkling wines, new releases of still wines, magnum bubblies, and a special new ratafia fortified wine to help you mark the day—no special occasion necessary.

Visitors can expect extraordinarily unique and fun events in the Gatsby style Breathless has become known for, with perfectly paired wine and foods, live music, and even a Polaroid photobooth with props.

The new tasting room will also host outdoor movie nights and cirque-theme events (like the upcoming grand opening). During the day guests can stroll the gardens, enjoy a leisurely picnic, or take lessons in beheading a bottle of sparkling with an authentic Italian saber (a dull-bladed sword that pops the bubbly open in a centuries-old fashion).

The new tasting room, located at 499 Moore Lane in Healdsburg, will be the first of its kind in the area, built entirely out of recycled shipping containers. Well-insulated, of course, to keep cool.

Breathless founders and sisters Sharon Cohn, Rebecca Faust, Cynthia Faust and honorary sister, winemaker Penny Gadd-Coster, invite you to “cross the railroad tracks” and venture just a few blocks from the Healdsburg Square to Breathless’ new home in the Warehouse District.

Until the grand opening in October (add your name to the email list at for an invite) visit Breathless’ pop-up tasting room in nearby Alexander Valley: 4001 Hwy 128 in Geyserville, open Thursday through Monday from 11-5.
