DIANE’S WORK FROM “HOME” WEEK IN YOUNTVILLE
There are many great places to stay in Yountville. Napa Valley Lodge, located in NoYo, is the perfect spot for your work/play vacation. Featuring newly remodeled rooms, you can enjoy a vineyard view while checking emails. If it is nice out, take your laptop out to the new pool area and enjoy working under the Napa Valley sun.
It is always important to take a lunch break while you are working! Lucky for you Yountville has lots of great lunch options walking distance from your remote office.
If you are craving something with a little latin flair try Protea Yountville. If a deli sandwich is more your style stop at Velo Deli and Pizzeria (attached to Ranch Market Too), for fresh made sandwiches and pizza by the slice. The famous Bouchon Bakery not only features delicious coffee and pastries but they also have a handful of pre-made salads and sandwiches. Try local favorite the Brie L T! Finally, if you just want something quick and close head over to Kelly’s Wine Shop & Filling Station for a hot dog, drink and bag of chips for under $10! It is the best deal in town.
There is nothing better after a long day of work then Happy Hour. Lucky for you Yountville has plenty of Tasting Rooms that are open and ready to welcome you for a glass, tasting or even a bottle of wine!
Priest Ranch has recently launched two wines in a can that are perfect to take away and enjoy poolside back at your hotel. Hope & Grace specializes in single varietal wines and has one of the largest selections of white wine in the Napa Valley. Hill Family Estate has sa tasting room on Washington Street in Yountville AND recently just opened a winery down the road from Yountville. Just across the street is Jessup Cellars, known as the friendliest winery in Napa Valley, they have a great variety of wines by the glass you can enjoy on their patio.
After happy hour it is time to enjoy some of the amazing food that has made Yountville world famous. Make sure you make a reservation since restaurants are operating on limited capacity. Enjoy a fresh salad or sushi roll on the patio at R+D Kitchen or a fresh lobster roll from RH Yountville. You can’t come to Yountville and not try one of Thomas Keller’s famous restaurants. Make a reservation at Bouchon Bistro for a romantic dinner or stop by La Calenda for a margarita and a taco on the patio.
Now that the work week is over enjoy a Saturday morning bike ride, hike or scenic drive before saying goodbye to your home away from home.
I know Yountville will keep you wanting to come back for more “work from home” vacations!
