During your stay at the SENZA boutique hotel, just 5 minutes drive from Yountville, taste the wines of Napa Valley-our world-famous local product-at your own leisurely pace.
Start the day off with a breakfast nibble at downtown Yountville's renowned Bouchon Bakery, purveyors of fine French pastries. Then make your way south on Yountville's main stretch, Washington Street, to begin your intimate wine tasting odyssey with three small, family-owned producers.
Silver Trident Winery calls its Yountville tasting room a "home" because they believe that when you're experiencing the wines of a small, family-owned winery, you should feel as welcome as you would in the family's private space. There's no tasting bar here, just a beautifully appointed living room, dining room, and library, where you'll be welcomed by a friendly, knowledgeable host. From Apollo's Folly Rosé to Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, everyone in your group will find a wine they love. Contact the Silver Trident Winery team for more information and to arrange your visit!
Next along the Yountville wine walk, heading north is the sleek, contemporary Hestan Vineyards tasting salon. This modern tasting room was built in 2013 to showcase the winery's three labels: Hestan Vineyards, Meyer, and Stephanie sourced from estate vineyards in the secluded Gordon Valley and other parts of Napa Valley. And if you're inspired by the fine dining experiences that abound in Yountville, from the French Laundry to Ad Hoc, the Hestan Vineyards tasting salon also features an extensive display of Ruffoni Italian cookware from winery founder Stanley Cheng's company.
