Founder, Vintner’s Daughter
We love Meadowood. They have an incredible family pool, and the small hike around the property is a great way to start the day. All the menus are seasonal and super-local. Last time, I had a drink made with Moringa leaf—it’s an adaptogen, which helps your body adapt to stress.
Ciccio in Yountville has this swirling, Felliniesque energy to it. I like the Negroni menu, and I always get the whole branzino.
A new izakaya in downtown Napa called Miminashi is the best place for cocktails and snacks. It has a highly regarded craft-beer and wine list, an interesting sake menu, and cocktails. I recommend some sake and yakitori.
For fashion, Hunter Gatherer in Yountville is so spot-on for Napa Valley. Their collection for men and women is comfortable, but still chic. My last purchase was a one-of-a-kind maxi dress made from antique handkerchiefs.
Indian Springs in Calistoga has been offering mud baths for over a century. The resort itself has that old-fashioned Dirty Dancing resort feeling (in a good way). A treatment there immediately makes me feel relaxed.
