Need an escape to the Napa Valley?
If you’re feeling restless in your “staycation,” the town of Yountville in the Napa Valley has a gift you’ll appreciate. The town has created a virtual vacation of videos featuring all of the classic wine country activities.
Start your day with a Balloon Ride over Yountville
Click your way to footage of a Napa Valley Aloft ride. Begin your trip as the sun rises, the mist only starting to clear over the well-groomed vineyards. There are no worries about weather here. You won’t get sweaty palms as you ascend and you’ll never feel the landing.
Casually Stroll the Art Walk
You didn’t know Yountville had an art walk? Well this video offers an ideal way to discover this cultural gem of southern Napa Valley. No winding your way through crowds of wine tasters, no sweating in the sun. Just put your feet up and “walk” your way through this cultural experience.
Discover The French Laundry’s Secret Garden
Did you know that Hill Family Estate produces more than wine? Surprise! Their secret garden grows an abundance of veggies for one of Yountville’s most famous residents, The French Laundry. And for as long as Shelter in Place orders remain, they’re taking visitors on a weekly tour of this previously unknown treasure.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry
The one thing Yountville hasn’t figured out how to provide is the smells and flavors of their most famous products. BUT the website offers you a recipe from Protea restaurant. There’s also information on virtual tastings and how to join a daily virtual happy hour with one of Yountville’s most colorful residents, Jean Charles Boisset.
There’s also a museum tour and links to local, live music. And if that isn’t enough, there’s a sheep cam. Any time you’re feeling low, you can visit with Shafer Vineyards’ sheep vid. A guaranteed pick-me-up, watching nature’s lawn mowers tend the vineyards is sure to put you in a Wine Country state of mind.
To get the full details plus all of the links, visit the Yountville website.
