One hardly needs an excuse to get away to Yountville, the culinary and viticulture center of California’s Napa Valley. But if you do, here’s a good one: incredible deals on hotels, food and wine in a town whose restaurants boast six Michelin stars. From Dec. 1 to February 28, chefs and hotels are teaming up for packages along with prix-fixe meals and discounts. Look for $1 oyster specials, 50-percent-off wine tastings and up to 25 percent off on hotel/dining packages.
For dining, both The Restaurant at Bardessono and Bottega are offering three-course lunches for $24.00 while Bistro Jeanty has a three-course dinner for $70 per couple. And at Hurley’s Restaurant, you can chow down on a three-course meal like crispy calamari salad, pan-seared scallops and dessert for $25.00 per person. Hotel/dining packages include one from Hotel Luca, set to open at the end of this month. The package includes a room, breakfast, a three-course Neapolitan-style lunch with wine at the hotel’s Cantinetta Piero restaurant, 2-for-1 bicycle rental, a 10 percent discount at Luca Spa and wine tastings at Ma(i)sonry, Girard Winery and Jessup Cellars, starting at $365.00. Thomas Keller devotees can get two nights at the Cottages of Napa Valley, a breakfast basket from Bouchon Bakery, a private winery tour and tasting plus dinner at Ad Hoc restaurant starting at $495.00. Villagio Inn & Spa is offering a room, champagne breakfast buffet, three-course lunch at Michael Chiarello’s Bottega Restaurant, VIP tasting at V Wine Cellar and a $50 shopping certificate at V Marketplace boutiques for $325.
