Yountville is a wine country gem. Known until recently as “Thomas Keller’s Town”, this place is a wine- and food-lover’s dream with tasting rooms and restaurants snuggled along a four or five block stretch. Park your car and walk the whole town in a leisurely day (which means no designated driver needed!). It runs high on luxury, indulgence and beauty, but maintains a quaint charm. It is also accessible to both Napa and Sonoma.
Tasting rooms in the span of the town include Jessup (go for the artwork, and stay for the wine), Girard, Somerston and Grace. Otherwise, park yourself on one of the patios below and taste from their wine lists while you nibble.
