Escape to a Hidden Resort
Veer off the Path to an Exclusive WineryThe best Napa wineries usually can’t be found with a quick Google search, and they most certainly won’t have a queue of cars waiting out front to get in. Instead, insider wineries are usually much more incognito, exclusive, and oftentimes can be rather impossible to visit. These five wineries are some of our favorite secret spots in the valley, offering exclusive and luxurious tastings.
The baccarat chandeliers and tasting progression will transport you to a world, and an era, that’s unique and different from the other contemporaries in the valley. Enjoy your tasting in the red room and savor every sip of luxury. Raymond Vineyards also offers a “winemaker for the day” experience that allows you to blend your own wine and take home your own signature bottle with a custom label. Enjoy tasting some of the valley’s best wines or take a stab at creating your own, either way, Raymond Vineyards is worth a visit.
Find the Foodie in you
Napa, of course, offers a wealth of luxury restaurants, home to some of the world’s best chefs who love pairing local food with local wine. But may we suggest experiencing the valley’s food scene, from a different perspective? With all of the incredible summer produce available, it’s only fitting to visit one of the many nearby Farmer’s Markets to buy artisan bread, cured meats, local honey, cheese, and so many other delicious treats! Maybe make it the first stop for a picnic or shop here before your home-cooked three-course meal? The Napa Farmer’s Market even has chef demos on Saturday mornings to give you a taste of some inspiration!
