August 27, 2020
Napa Valley is pulling out all the stops to welcome health-conscious travelers. For those that aren’t quite ready to dive back into wining and dining in public spaces, hotels are offering private in-suite experiences that bring Napa Valley to the comfort of your (meticulously clean and sanitized) private suite. Looking for totally private dining experiences outside your hotel? We’ve got that too! Below, find our top picks:
Escape to The Villa at The Estate Yountville, a private 6,600 square foot five-bedroom luxurious residence in the heart of downtown Yountville. The living room has 20-foot ceilings with expansive walls of windows overlooking the private pool, pool deck & hot tub and elaborate outdoor seating area. This main living area has a separate gaming area with its own designer pool table as well as an entertaining kitchen. The Villa is ideal for couples getting away to celebrate a special occasion, multi-generational travel or families wishing to enjoy more space with ultimate privacy. As an added bonus, your wine country getaway comes with complimentary round trip private jet service from Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco to Napa Airport with luxury transfer to The Estate Yountville.
Carneros Resort and Spa has teamed up with Cuvaison Estate Wines on a truly unique in-room dining and wining experience. This rare opportunity allows guests to taste their way through the award-winning wines during an in-suite wine tasting experience presented by Cuvaison winemaker Steve Rogstad. Offered in the comfort of the resort’s luxurious private homes, guests can choose from a customized in-depth wine tasting or an immersive food and wine pairing featuring Executive Chef Aaron Meneghelli’s wine country seasonal bites sourced from the resort’s onsite culinary garden.
Calistoga's Amici Cellars and Cottage Grove Inn have come together to offer the very best of Napa Valley to guests staying at Cottage Grove Inn without having to leave the porch of their private cottage. For guests looking to soak up the Napa Valley wine tasting experience, but prefer staying in, Amici Cellars will bring their luxury wine tasting to Cottage Grove Inn for an intimate tasting experience.
In partnership with Vista Collina Resort, Hestan Cue, the famed cookware brand, offers guests an in-suite cooking class with virtual instruction from the resort’s own Executive Chef, Vincent Lesage. During the experience, guests can relax in their room and select from seasonal, farm-fresh ingredients that are then delivered straight to the suite by the hotel’s culinary team. All suites come with a fully-equipped kitchen featuring Hestan Cue’s smart cooking system and premium dinnerware and kitchenware. This exciting technology is perfect for couples looking for a romantic date night or parents looking to please the whole family without dining out.
The Setting Inn offers a private tasting of The Setting Wines portfolio, famously known for producing the most expensive 750mL bottle of wine ever sold at auction for the Emeril Lagasse Foundation for $350,000, paired with a local cheese and charcuterie plate. This takes place in view of the Mayacamas Mountains surrounded by vineyards and with access to lawn games such as cornhole and large-sized Yahtzee. Guests can also enjoy the tasting in their private two-bedroom cottage.
The Private Garden at PRESS provides an outdoor refuge for your family or small group. Nestled in an enclave surrounded by lush greenery, guests are able to enjoy a world-class meal while surrounded by Mother Nature. A three or four-course family-style menu allows guests to enjoy everything the Chef has prepared for the evening. Alternatively, Chef’s Tasting menu gives Chef Tessier the reigns to prepare a multi-course menu with hyper-seasonal ingredients. Guests can also dine à la carte and enjoy their favorite meal from the main dining menu. The Sommelier team is happy to assist in pre-selecting wines to pair with your meal from their extensive Napa Valley wine list with vintages dating back to the 1950s.
