Top 9 Things to Do in Yountville

Pastries Worth Waiting For

Bouchon Bakery
6528 Washington St
Yountville, CA 94599
(707) 944-2253
Great for treats any time of day--or light sandwiches and salads--Bouchon Bakery is part of Chef Thomas Keller's famous family of restaurants. In addition to the bakery menu, espressos, coffees, and fine teas are also available. If you notice a line out the door, don't worry! It moves quick, and it's well worth a short wait for the pastries, artisanal breads, and cookies.

Wine Tasting Bingo!

Yountville Wine Walk
Yountville Welcome Center
6484 Washington St
Yountville, CA 94599
(707) 944-0904
With so many wine tasting opportunities throughout the Napa Valley, sometimes it can be hard for our guests to choose. We love to help match visitors to wineries, but sometimes it's also fun to explore. In nearby Yountville, visitors can pick up free maps and stamp cards for nineteen different tasting rooms, all within a mile of downtown. As you wander and taste, wineries will "stamp" your card for prizes given out in tiers based on how many stamps you've collected. Prizes include discounts and freebies at area boutiques, bakeries, and special experiences. Stamps are good for two years, so when you revisit the area, you can keep collecting.

A Taste of History

Napa Valley Museum
55 Presidents Circle
PO Box 3567
Yountville, CA 94599
Our local museum is focused on the nature, art, and history of the area, and educates locals and visitors alike through exhibitions, collections, and creative activities.

A Tour-de-NoYo

Bike Tours
6500 Washington St
Yountville, CA 94599
At the Yountville location for this local business, you can either rent bikes from a wide selection (by the hour or day) and use a map to get around, or opt for a guided tour of Yountville--including North Yountville, or "NoYo"--which includes scenic vineyard biking, stops for wine tastings, and more. Check out their wide selection of both guided and self-guided options, some of which include lunches and even hot air balloon rides!

Downhome Fine Dining

Fried Chicken at Ad Hoc
6476 Washington St
Yountville, CA 94599
(707) 944-2487
Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc was begun in an effort to create a casual dining atmosphere where he could share his favorite "comfort foods" instead of the high-end fare associated with the more famous French Laundry. Among the more popular menu items is the house fried chicken, which you can usually get at Sunday Brunch, though for the rest of the week, the menu changes daily--you can sign up to get it in your inbox here. Of course, an extensive wine and cocktail list complements these offerings, and reservations can be made here.

An Historic Wine Vault

Restoration Hardware Yountville
6725 Washington St
Yountville CA 94599
(707) 339-4654
You might wonder how a furniture gallery made the list, but Restoration Hardware Yountville is a unique experience! It's an entire campus, with the retailer's first stand-alone restaurant, "outdoor living rooms" where you can sip wine before strolling home décor galleries, and a wine vault installed in a restored building which is also on the National Registry of Historic Places! Check out the restaurant menu here, and the tasting flights here--reservations are also a good idea.

Yountville CA 94599

This unique retail and tasting salon allows guests not only to taste the range of JCB's extensive wine portfolio—sparkling and still—but also offers fashion, jewelry, perfume, home décor, and more. Reserve a group tasting in the "Surrealist Room" to enjoy a guided tasting with a wine educator.
