You probably already know firsthand – or have otherwise heard through the grapevine – that Napa Valley is a sacrosanct wine region. We don’t need to convince you of its viticultural virtues, but we can tell you about some of the area’s new hospitality ventures that just so happen to pair great with a world-class glass of vino.

Stanly Ranch
Set on more than 700 acres in the heart of wine country, this historical working ranch has been reimagined as a resort and retreat where guests can enjoy morning meditation walks through the vineyards or discover limited-production wines at its signature restaurant, Bear. aubergeresorts.com/stanlyranch

House of Better
Dr. Wilkinson’s Backyard Resort & Mineral Springs is home to this playful dining destination with a Southwest-inspired, health-focused menu. Munch on harissa-carrot hummus and red chile chicken posole in the “backyard,” anchored by a wood-fired oven and New Mexican chile roaster. houseofbetter.com

Wilfred’s Lounge
Wine country meets Waikiki at Napa Valley’s first and only tiki bar. The space pays homage to the owners’ uncle, who worked as a bartender in the Aloha State in the 1940s.
