The Napa Valley is home to more Michelin Stars, AAA Diamonds and Forbes Travel Guide Stars than any other wine region in the U.S. The legendary wine region boasts a total of 10 Michelin Stars, 70 Forbes Travel Guide Stars, and 54 AAA Diamonds for its restaurants, lodging properties and resort spas.
In February 2019, Meadowood Napa Valley in St. Helena was honored with its second consecutive triple Five-Star award from Forbes Travel Guide, the world’s only independent global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas. The estate joined an elite group of only 11 hotels in the world to receive all three Five-Star designations (hotel, restaurant and spa) at the same property.
“We are extremely proud of our award-winning hotels, restaurants and spas,” stated Clay Gregory, CEO for Visit Napa Valley. “These awards reflect each recipient’s dedication to service excellence and attention to detail, and further validates why the Napa Valley is renowned for its warm and welcoming hospitality, exceptional restaurants, and health and wellness.”
