There are two hotels within The Estate Yountville, Hotel Villagio and Vintage House. Both hotels have recently been remodeled and feature some of the most luxurious amenities in Yountville. Vintage House blends rustic elegance, modern sophistication, and contemporary chic in 80 guests rooms, lofts and bungalows. Each room features vino-cultured touches that channel wine country style. Hotel Villagio, offers 113 guestrooms and 22 suites designed to be sanctuaries for pampering. Hotel Villagio is the place to stay when its time to indulge. Jenny and I stayed at Hotel Villagio to truly experience all of the luxury Yountville has to offer.
Tranquil water features line the path to the guest rooms. We headed to our room and were immediately impressed! The room had high vaulted ceilings, a large and comfy king bed, sitting area, and a patio that we were excited to take advantage of. The bathroom was my favorite part. A standing tub, complete with an ice bucket for bath time bubbles. If baths aren’t your thing the shower was huge, complete with a rain shower head. Jenny and I quickly popped a bottle of JCB 21 and enjoyed the unusually warm afternoon on our patio.
Jenny and I were seated next to the huge fireplace in the dining room and prepared ourselves for the meal to come. We started with the crab cake with scallop mousse, avocado, tomatoes, arugula and the grilled thick cut bacon with maple glaze. The bacon was something to write home about! We also decided we had to try the much talked about hand-cut beef tartar because…when in Yountville! For our main dishes I decided to be bold and try the sea bass. It was to die for! One of the best seafood dishes I have ever had and it was at a steakhouse. Jenny opted for the steak frites. Her steak was cooked perfectly and the duck fat fries were amazing. For dessert we shared the buttermilk pana cotta with citrus gelee, mint granita, and shortbread crumble.
Waking up feeling relaxed and refreshed we headed back to the Bar at Hotel Villagio but this time for their wine-country style breakfast. Breakfast was a bright array of pastries, fresh fruit, smoked salmon, cheese and more. I enjoyed a great glass of the “sunshine blend” juice and a delightful cup of coffee.
Feeling ready to take on the day we decided to take a walk around The Estate before wine tasting. We stopped by The Shops at the Marketplace and enjoyed a sample of chocolate from Kollar Chocolates. Then headed upstairs to see what Sisters Boutique and C’est La Paire had for us to gush over. After our quick shopping spree I insisted we cross the street to take a picture with “The Sidewalk Judge”, the most Instagrammed place in Yountville.
After our wine tasting, sadly it was time to head home. The best part? Silver Trident is located within The Estate Yountville as well! We had a short walk back to Hotel Villagio and were ready to head back to real life.
