Yountville is the perfect place to let your Instagram and selfie skills shine. With one mile of unique shops, fabulous tasting rooms, extraordinary restaurants and knowledgeable locals, Yountville CA is the ideal town to take photos to remember one of the best Wine Country vacations you’ll have. Scroll down to learn about some of my favorite Instagram locations.
1. Sidewalk Judge
The Sidewalk Judge is the most photographed location in Yountville! Located on a bench in front of the Yountville CA Community Center, it is rare to walk by Sidewalk Judge and not see someone enjoying a picture with him.
2. The French Laundry Gardens
The French Laundry Gardens, located across the street from Thomas Keller’s three Michelin Star restaurant by the same name, is a 3 acre garden open to the public. You can wander around and see all the fresh fruits and veggies that will be used to make the impressive meals across the street. Make sure and say hi to the chickens. French laundry and other restaurants in the region are one of the reasons why Yountville CA makes one of the best wine country vacations.

3. Bikes in front of the Welcome Center
Not only should the Yountville Welcome Center be your first stop when you get to town but it should also be your first photo op! Pose with the cruiser bikes in front and then walk down the street and rent your own to bike around for the day at Napa Valley Bike Tours & Rentals.
4. English Muffin at Mini Model
This is one of Oprah’s (and my) favorite things! Enjoy Model Bakery’s famous english muffin by itself or as a breakfast sandwich…either way you will not be disappointed!
5. Bouchon Bakery
No trip to Yountville CA is complete without of striking a pose next to the iconic yellow awning of Bouchon Bakery with a green bag in hand filled with delicious pastries.
6. Hotel Villagio Vineyard
Need to take your picture in a vineyard? Look no further than the vineyard next to Hotel Villagio. The vineyard is the perfect place to take a photo among the vines without having to drive out of town. There is also a lovely area with grass and fountain that can be booked for weddings! The best wine country vacations start at the hotels of Yountville which are luxury masterpieces.
7. Inside RH Yountville
Nothing says instagram quite like RH Yountville. Filled with live olive trees and crystal chandeliers it is truly an instagram-worthy stop. Enjoy lunch or dinner for bonus instagramable food shots!

9. Roses in Van de Leur Park
Yountville has lots of beautiful locations to take photos of flowers but the best one is the small Van de Leur Park in the center of town. An idyllic walking path strolls under large redwood trees to fountain surrounded by every color rose.
