Best Damn Dirty 30 Ever

Valette Healdsburg

My husband and I went on a date night to the new local hot spot: Valette. It’s a charming, welcoming wine country restaurant: Manhattan chic meets wine country rustic. Booth like tables with gorgeous white leather seats, metal top tables to compliment the old school butcher […]
