Tucked away along the hillside of Dry Creek Valley, in the sleepy little town of Healdsburg, is a century-old mansion called Madrona Manor. Built in 1881, this nationally-registered Victorian estate was once just a weekend getaway for a very well-to-do banker. Today, it’s an inn with a one star Michelin-rated restaurant. The grounds at Madrona Manor–as one would expect–are immaculate. It is a mansion after all. Tulips, roses, annuals and perennials, leave the eight-acre estate billowing with floral delights. But my favorite part is the property’s organic kitchen garden.
