Yountville on Any Budget
The town of Yountville is a walkable, one-mile stretch of restaurants, shops, tasting rooms, art displays, and hotels. Known as the "Culinary Capital of Napa Valley" or the "Gourmet Mile," Yountville boasts several critically acclaimed restaurants, including Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry and Bouchon. As such, it has a reputation of being an expensive place to visit, much less stay.
While this is certainly the case for those looking for 5-star dining and lodging...there are more affordable options for visitors wanting an equally memorable experience, with money left over to buy wine. The wine is, after all, why most people come to the Napa Valley. What’s more, you can leave your car at the hotel and stroll the day(s) away. Here’s how:
The Yountville Chamber has implemented a program called “Taste Life Here” Wine Tasting Passport - $59 gets you a tasting flight at six wineries, all within walking distance from each other. The pass is valid until July 1, 2016 so if you can’t make it to all of them in one visit, you can use it again on your next.
In addition to being a passport participant, Cornerstone Cellars offers complimentary tastings with purchase, as well as to Wine Club members and Napa neighbors. You can even enjoy live music and 2 for 1 tastings from 3-6pm at our free Sunday Funday events, running all summer long through the end of October.
Hurley’s Restaurant is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Their daily Vintners Menu features a two course lunch for $24, or a three course for $29. They also don’t charge a corkage fee so BYOB (bring your own bottle). Pacific Blues Café is a casual American Grill with a varied menu and al fresco seating on a big rustic deck. Yountville Deli, located in the north end of Ranch Market, has a variety of artisan sandwiches, along with a build your own menu. And then there’s Taco's Garcia—a tasty taco truck located in the dirt parking lot of Pancha's, the Valley’s last remaining old-timey saloon (read: dive-bar). For picnicking, there are parks at the north and south ends of town where you can enjoy your new favorite summer wine with some epicurean take-out.
Napa Valley Railway Inn is a unique hotel featuring charming rooms in converted antique train cars that sit on their original tracks. There’s even a delicious coffee hut in its caboose! There are also a few B&B’s in town where you can find a good deal with a little searching and flexibility: Maison Fleurie, Petit Logis, and Lavender Inn are all lovely options.
They will often have white underbellies and have the black "mascara" lines over the eyes.
