Area Travel Guide

In addition to wine tasting, Napa Valley and Vino Bello offer a whole array of sights, destinations and activities to enjoy while staying in wine country.

See the rows of grape vines up close with a stroll through a vineyard as the sun dips behind the hills. Or marvel at the patterned landscape from far away with a hot air balloon ride. Horseback riding is a local favorite. But, if you had something tamer in mind, bicycles are available nearby to rent as well and offer a great way to get around the quaint shops of Napa Valley and Sonoma. The Jack London State Historical Park near Sonoma and the Skyline Wilderness Park near Napa offer excellent hiking opportunities along with the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Napa is also home to phenomenal dining and nightlife. Notable restaurants include the French Laundry and Mustards Grill in Yountville. Napa has Ristorante Allegria and Pearl's. The General's Daughter in Sonoma is also highly rated.

Napa's nightlife is varied and ranges from its burgeoning theater scene to its renowned symphony. Local nightspots also offer fun, regional talent.

Of course, if it's wine tasting that you are after, the concierge at the neighboring Meritage Resort will be happy to map out a list of vineyards for you to visit.

What better way to end a day of wine tasting than by indulging in the rejuvenating spa treatments of the full service Spa Terra at Meritage Resort. A new, state-of-the-art, underground cave spa, Spa Terra's softly lit rough stone floors are accented by colorful mosaics. Handcrafted iron chandeliers and private alcoves carved into the cave's natural rock walls create a soothing ambience. The spa offers soothing massages, cleansing facials and body treatments, renewing aqua treatments, manicures, pedicures, and hair styling.

The Estate Wine Cave and Trinitas Wine Tasting Bar, available to guests for a fee, maintains an exceptional collection of wines. The collection contains distinctive wines from Napa Valley and other California vineyards outside of Napa.

Using the freshest regional ingredients to prepare creative nouveau culinary delights, the neighboring Siena Restaurant features a traditional Tuscan menu inspired by the region for which it is named. Dine alfresco on Siena's patio, with sweeping views of the Napa countryside. Of course, the menu is complemented by a list of outstanding wines.
