I realize that most hotels I picked in the past are ones I want to escape to outside of the US, but I had forgotten about the ones I don’t mind escaping to even for the weekend and those I want to recommend to my foreign followers.
I don’t need to sell Napa valley to anyone visiting the great state of California, but I do want to remind those not familiar with the region, Yountville is the place to consider when choosing a hotel to stay in, while visiting one of my favorite wine regions in the world – Napa Valley. Lucky for me it’s in my back yard. The hotel is called Hotel Yountville, and is ideally located almost in the center of Napa Valley. There are several restaurants to choose from for your dining pleasure and plenty of shops and boutiques and an outlet to keep you busy. There is also a golf course directly across the freeway from Yountville for those not interested in indulging in our California wines.
While in Yountville, be sure to dine at my favorite eatery, Bottega Ristorante owned by Chef Michael Chiarello to experience some of the finest old world Italian dining.
