Delectable bites from executive chef Justin Wangler pair with Kendall-Jackson wines at Partake by K-J, a new “lounge and flight club” owned by Jackson Family Wines. Red wine fries (with Cabernet ketchup) and pork buns deliciously invite you to sample the Cabernet and Syrah flights. Sipping a late harvest Chardonnay while snacking on a Riesling macaron caramel ice cream sandwich will fulfill any sweet tooth. 241 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg, (707) 433-6000, partakebykj.com.
Chalk Hill estate has opted for a less formal menu with the opening of Chalkboard, on the site of the former Cyrus Restaurant. The charming new eatery serves up tapas-style dishes that feature locally grown ingredients, including some produced on the vineyard’s estate. Locals can’t get enough of executive chef Shane McAnelly’s Dungeness crab Tater Tots, and desserts like warm blueberry donuts and panna cotta (whimsically served to resemble cereal with milk). 29 North St., Healdsburg, (707) 473-8030, chalkboardhealdsburg.com.
