1st time to wine country, night life??

Planning a trip, specifically to Russian River Valley, for some wine tasting. My husband and I are in early 40's and are going to spend a few days in San Francisco then rent a car and drive to Sonoma/Santa Rosa/Healdsburg area. As I am researching which wineries to choose, I am noticing that everything seems to close so early!! Is there any kind of night life? I'm guessing we need to splurge to stay at a really nice resort/hotel so something is open after 6pm! Thanks for any input on what to do in evening. (We of course, will be looking for restaurants as going on this trip we are also looking forward to eating!)

Healdsburg is not exactly overflowing with nightlife, but it's mainly the wineries that close before 6pm. The restaurants and bars will be open later. Most of the restaurant hours are until something like 9 or 10pm, and you'll find a bar or two open later into the night in Healdsburg and probably a few more in Santa Rosa. It's not Vegas, but it won't be dead at 6pm.

I have friends who just opened a pub in Healdsburg. They are open late with lovely craft beers and wines, and they have live music on certain nights. Try THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM.

If you are in Santa Rosa, try their sister pub, TOAD IN THE HOLE.

Hotel Healdsburg and Inn & The Plaza are two places we have enjoyed staying. 🍷

I you mean nightlife as anything after 10 pm then it's Non-existent. Wine Country is so lame in that aspect
