We asked everyone at Round Pond what their perfect romantic getaway in Napa would look like. Taking the "best of the best", we made a customized itinerary just for you ...and just in time for your Valentine's Day!
Arrive at the stunning Condé Nast Reader's Choice award-winning Meadowood Napa Valley for afternoon check-in, and revel in their award-winning hospitality as you lounge by your very own fireplace or explore the 250 acres of grounds. Enjoy dinner on-site at The Restaurant, The Grill, or have an intimate dinner served in your room for the ultimate romantic tête-à-tête.
Enjoy morning coffee in your room, and step out for a leisurely hike on the Meadowood Loop - scenic trails that wind through the surrounding woods with breathtaking views of Napa Valley. Not up for a hike? Take advantage of Meadowood's amazingly luxurious Spa and indulge in a range of massage or skin-care treatments in your own private suite to relax or revitalize your spirit.
Afterward, head into St. Helena for a scrumptious breakfast sandwich or freshly-baked pastry and coffee at The Model Bakery (be sure to try the Morning Bun!). Stroll through the quaint shops in town whilst you sip your coffee, then hit Schramsberg for a late morning tour of their infamous caves and tasting of their incredible bubbles.
For lunch (and bocce ball!), stop by Solbar at Solage Resort & Spa, and indulge in the famous Lucky Pig - braised pork shoulder for two, served with thin sesame pancakes, butter lettuce, peanut sauce, and pickled carrots.
After lunch, head back to Meadowood for some R&R before getting ready for a cozy dinner at Bistro Jeanty in Yountville. This local's favorite crafts authentic French bistro-style cuisine that is simply unforgettable. Don't miss their most popular dishes, the Crême de Tomate en Croutes (tomato soup in puff pastry), Sole Meunière (sole fillet with mashed potatoes & lemon caper butter sauce) and the Bœuf Bourguignon (short rib, roasted carrots, pearl onions, & buttered egg noodles).
Wind down the night by splurging on a special treat for your sweetheart by arranging for a surprise candlelight bubble bath, champagne, and chocolates in your room upon return to Meadowood for a blissful end to a supremely romantic day.
Kick off Sunday with brunch at Round Pond! We'll take you on a tour of our beautiful winery gardens with our Estate Chef, where you will pick your own vegetables and herbs for your meal, and then spoil you with a Garden-to-Table Brunch featuring a selection of our exquisite wines and artisan foods. Seated on our winery terrace and enjoying the gorgeous views of the vineyards and the Mayacamas Mountains, you may never want to leave.
After brunch, head south into downtown Napa and walk along the newly-renovated Napa Riverfront. Be sure to stop at the local favorite Frati Gelato Cafe for some freshly-made gelato to eat while you enjoy the river-front views and shop the quaint boutiques. What a weekend to remember!
