Thomas Keller one step closer to turning Yountville into Kellerville with Aloysius Inn

by TrevR on December 11, 2007

Visitors to the mid-Napa Valley town of Yountville, famous for its high-end shops, hotels and restaurants, may soon have yet another luxury inn to choose from. The soon-to-be new lodging, Aloysius Inn, is the work of Thomas Keller, he of French Laundry/Bouchon/Bouchon Bakery/Ad Hoc fame.

Thomas KellerPlans for Aloysius Inn, which may or may not be the final name for the proposed property on Webber Ave. and Washington St., include 20-units, a gym, a spa, pool and private courtyard. The Inn has reportedly been in the works for some 6+ years, having been delayed for various reasons and only recently overcoming its latest hurdle. In terms of when the new Inn may actually be up and running, an article in the North Bay Business Times said:

The town has agreed to schedule final design review on or before the end of March. Construction is estimated to take approximately 18 months.

If things keep up, Yountville may soon have to be renamed Kellerville.

    Hello,
    Joe over at winehiker gave me your blog.
    I love it I have been calling it Kellerville for a while, good trick if you can do it! If someone told me 10 years ago he would be getting for dinner the prices he charges at FL then I would say he is a magician, but history has shown, some people, a lot of people will come! Well, I guess that if you can be identified as the best at anything you can charge far more than any others. I wonder what the room price will be $2k a night? With reservations at the Laundry required!
