Directions to Chalk Hill Residency/Warnecke Ranch: 13427 Chalk Hill Road, Healdsburg.
From 101 - talk the Shiloh Road/Windsor Exit and go east about 1 mile.
At stop sign, take left on Faught Road. You will pass equestrian center on left.
In about one mile, road splits slightly at Pleasant Avenue, and Faught veers to the left - stay left on Faught Road for a very short time, and watch for the beginning of Chalk Hill Road on your right.
Turn right onto Chalk Hill Road, which winds for about 5 miles.
The road rises (Chalk Hill will be on your left) and there will be a newly built Chateau style compound on your right and a small red barn building on your left.
Pass Toby Lane on the right and slow down.
Turn into the next driveway on your left, after the mailboxes.
The address is 13427 Chalk Hill Road and there are large Agave plants and chain link gates and a sign marked Private Property. The gates will be open.
Once inside the gates, stay on the main road with the purple plum trees. It starts going downhill and you see a long yellow building on your right. The only marking on the door says Restrooms.
Park anywhere in that area or in between the vineyard buildings - there is a red bench we can use as our meeting place.
From this location, we can walk or car shuttle to other locations on the property - including the studio barns and residence house.
