French manor house charm and a sumptuous vino-centric spa in the Napa Valley's foodie fantasyland
This inn and its sprawling grounds looks like what might happen if an elegant French country manor were deconstructed and dropped into the heart of California Wine Country. From this charming spot, rows of neatly manicured rose bushes and the occasional white picket gate are all that separates you from the gourmet fantasyland of Yountville. Among the orange trees and rose bushes you’ll find tumble-down farm carts converted into planters and stone-lined pools filled with water from a burbling fountain. The evocation is fitting, since parts of the property are converted from the original Groezinger Estate winery, which dates back to the 1870s.
Bed & Bath
Overlooking the grounds are 80 spacious guestrooms set in clusters of two-story wood-paneled or brick cottages. The rooms offer luxe amenities that belie the property’s rustic feel. This is pure country charm — with a much higher thread count. Each room has its own wood-burning fireplace, and ground-floor rooms have private patios, while second-floor spaces are equipped with balconies and wood-raftered cathedral ceilings.
Days start with a free champagne breakfast and wind down with you warming by the wood-burning fireplace after a soak in the oversize hot tub. In between, you can play a few sets of tennis on the on-premises courts, relax at the world-class Spa Villagio on the Estate grounds or stretch out with a yoga or Pilates class. Travel the wine trail on your own (the inn provides free iPod Touches preprogrammed with winery maps and suggested tour routes) or with a bike touring company, and, of course, eat your way through the Michelin Guide. No joke: Yountville boasts more Michelin stars per capita than any other hamlet in the nation.
