Your Wine Country Getaway
By Zeke Quezada
You’ll find yourself wandering in wine country. Quite often a trip to Napa Valley has you in a car or shuttle moving from tasting room to tasting room. That can be fun, but it also does not always lend itself to relaxing. Walk around The Village at Vista Colina Napa and you’ll soon discover that your wine country getaway can include a little more time relaxing and less time racing from venue to venue.
The resort is tucked away on 11 lush acres within close proximity to Downtown Napa. The 145 rooms are nicely appointed with modern decor and enough amenities to be considered an upscale resort with a luxury price tag. 39 suites are available each with full kitchens. This is a bonus when you factor in the on-site Food and Wine Center that begs you to test out your new-found cooking skills obtained in one of the cooking classes offered at the resort.
It is hard to compete with the options for tasting in Napa and Sonoma but the Vista Colina Napa Valley does its part to help you sample the local wines. The Village at Vista Colina offers nine Napa wine tasting rooms that should spark your wine curiosity.
The events alone will keep you fed from Food Truck Fridays, Taste of Napa and Brunch & Bubbles to the Artisan Market that helps you curate your very own Napa culinary affair. Take a look at Fivetown Grocery that stocks everything necessary for a picnic out on the lawn or if you so desire to take the romance into your suite they feature handmade pasta, freshly baked bread and a selection of wine that you could only expect from a market in the heart of wine country.
Take a look at their events page to chart out your stay and schedule some time to taste, to learn and to indulge. The experience at Vista Colina Napa Valley is immersive and interactive. Your wine country journey is more than a simple hotel stay.
You will spend an afternoon sipping wine on the expansive lawn at Vista Colina Napa Valley but your true relaxation will come from a day at Spa Terrra. Named one of the top 100 Spas in America your experience will be enhanced with treatments such as the Tension Tamer where deep pressure in the back, neck, and shoulders rids your body of the stress of everyday life. Couple that treatment with a Neroli Blossom Bliss or a California Citrus Ritual where your skin and feet are catered to with treatments that awaken the senses and hydrate the soul.
