In 1994 Kim & John Lloyd came up from Southern California looking for the small town quality of life and a potential business opportunity and settled in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. They took over the former Deluxe Foods located at the intersection of Healdsburg Avenue and Dry Creek Road.
When asked about the name, John Lloyd quickly points out that “BIG JOHN” isn’t a personal nickname. The “BIG” is an acronym for Better Independent Grocers.
Big John’s Market serves the Healdsburg, Geyserville, Alexander Valley, and Dry Creek Valley areas as well as Cloverdale to the North and Windsor to the South.
In 2006 the building and fixtures were completely renovated bringing a fresh new look and adding a food service court and outdoor seating.

“Our first visit to Coppola Winery has us hooked for life!. I’ve not stopped talking about, almost to the point of cornering perfect strangers, to tell them about our experience. What an amazing venue, to the measure of destination! Not just an outstanding winery, but incredible setting, wonderful grounds, over the top restaurant, and the staff to visitor ratio, not to be compared. Jill and Joe, our wine bar sommeliers, and Jill again who lead our tour, must be complemented and thanked for their warmth and knowledge. Jill made you feel as though you’ve just come back home. Of course we joined the Wine Family. Spontaneously at dinner, our server welcomed us home. Cannot wait until the warm weather. Already planning all day family outings & swimming, bocce, concerts, great food, incredible wine, cocktails, tours and new friends. Mr. Coppola has touched magic once again. His Hollywood experience shines through but not overshadows his love for great wine and good food. As soon as we stepped through the doors, visually we knew this place had been created of great thought, planning and love. As we experienced the winery and beyond, we knew this was a place we would be coming back to many times over. Oscar gold in the Wine Country! I’ve submitted a testimonial on the Winery web site and forward on comments to” – Regards, Mark Costella & Family, Danville CA
