Yountville is best known for it's wine and food. Located in California's beautiful Napa Valley wine growing region, this city is home to nearly a dozen wineries, that include the popular Domaine Chandon. Founded in 1973, Domaine Chandon was the first sparkling wine producer outside Champagne to be established by a French house, using only the traditional method. Also of great note here is the famous French Laundry, a gourmet restaurant that has received more awards than owner Thomas Keller can remember.

Part of a series of cities and communities that make up the Napa wine growing region, Yountville residents are accustomed to the finer things in life. They willingly share their resources and invite tourists wine tours and tastings, festivals, hot air ballooning, shopping and spa treatments. A trip to Yountville feels like a step back in time with the lovely rolling hills that frame miles of vineyards. 


One of the most unique shopping and entertainment complexes that captures the essence of Yountvillee's roots is Vintage 1870, a festival-style center with restaurants, galleries, event space and many attractions on the grounds of a 23 acre complex. In addition to the charming cobblestone walkways, vineyards and lush picnic gardens that surround this historic 135 year-old Groezinger Winery, a garden pavilion with a large collection of flowers and the meandering space is home to events such Vintage 1870 in Bloom, Father's Day vintage car show and a popular Halloween celebration. 


Several incredible boutique hotels and spas include the Napa Valley Lodge and Spa, and  the 4 Diamond Villagio Inn And Spa, 6481 Washington Street, reminiscent of a Tuscan village and Vintage Inn 6541 Washington Street, akin to a French chateau. With great restaurants, wineries, flower gardens, lush fields and shops all on site, you never need leave the property during your escape. Travel & Leisure magazine recently named the two resort hotels as 2 of the top 500 hotels in the world!

Most guests visiting the Napa Valley discover that weekends are usually quite busy. Yountville and other cities invite guests to visit on week days when traffic and crowds tend to be lighter. The wine country's close proximity to San Francisco make it a popular weekend getaway for locals who flock to the region. Annual events are held at and sponsored by wineries as well as the local Yountville Chamber of Commerce. Annual events include a summer Vintage 1870 Father's Day Invitational Auto Show free to the public and fall Halloween and Christmas tree lightings and town festivals. The best spot to get information and dates is on the Chamber of Commerce web site.


In 1835, George Calvert Yount chose a small area in the heart of the Napa Valley to establish roots and settle down. He chose what is known today as Yountville. Yountville is offers a peak into its rich history through easy going strolls through town. It was here in Yountville over 150 years ago that George Yount planted the first grapevine in the Napa Valley, giving birth to this internationally famous wine producing region.
