About Donna Merideth

My husband and I bought Villa Amici in 2002 in order to pursue our dream of making wine. The name Villa Amici means 'house of friends' and we have enjoyed sharing this little piece of Tuscany with many of our friends from around the world. Since buying the home, we have added the vineyard, bocce court and pizza oven to enhance the experience. Besides making wine, we enjoy cooking, traveling, fly fishing, discovering new foods and wine.

Donna Merideth purchased this villa in 2002

Why Donna Merideth chose Sonoma County

Villa Amici is located in the heart of Alexander Valley just outside of Healdsburg - a town which continues to grow in terms of fine shopping and dining. Villa Amici is surrounded by large vineyards and is a little piece of heaven. It has a unique casual but sophisticated feel.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Amici includes a wood burning pizza oven and bocce court and is perfect for entertaining. It is located within a mile or two of several wineries including Jordan, Medlock Ames, Alexander Valley Vineyards, Sausal, White Oak, Soda Rock, Hanna, Fieldstone, etc.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The Villa exceeded our expectations from seeing the pictures and reading descriptions. Visiting with my husband (celebrating his birthday) and two lifelong friends, we had a wonderful time visiting the Sonoma wine country from this perfect 'home base'. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean as was the rest of the house. A special bonus was the evening we made pizza in the pizza oven. Donna and Eddie were great. Very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and wineries as well as always accessible for questions.

The setting of the villa is absolutely gorgeous and it is only a short distance from Healdsburg as well as Geyserville, both places with terrific restaurants. The wineries we visited were stellar (Unti, Raphanelli, Carlisle, Benovia, Garden Creek, to name a few), but we also loved the moments we had just enjoying the property. Another plus is the collection of albums and the turntable that Eddie shares with their guests.

All in all, it was the perfect experience to celebrate my husband's birthday .... and we do hope to return one day soon!

Amazing Property and Host

  • 5 of 5

We will come back and stay longer. The home is so lovely. We made pizza in the oven one night which was a lot of fun. It's a great house to cook, eat, drink, relax in. It's very well appointed, anything you need is there. We want to come back and enjoy the bocce court (it was pouring rain when we were there) and lounge a bit outside and enjoy the view. Beds were comfortable, nice linens and pillows and place was very clean. Thank you!
