Olivia Darling recently had an article published in The Telegraph about the Napa Valley town of Yountville. Being born and raised in the valley, it’s always interesting for us to see how outsiders view the very things we see and do on a daily basis.
Ms. Darling, who is described in the article as a novelist and ‘wine expert’, offered her views on the best things to see and do in Yountville. In addition to being a huge fan of Clos du Val (she mentions it three times for different reasons), Darling also had this to say:
Where would you meet friends for a drink?
You’re spoiled for choice in Napa Ã¢â‚¬â€œ there are dozens of wonderful wineries nearby. In town, I like the terrace at Bistro Jeanty (6510 Washington Street).
Personally, we might opt for the bar at Hurley’s, or even V Wine Cellar, but that’s just us. And for dinner, sure French Laundry and Bouchon are great, but we also enjoyed our recent visit to Keller’s other restaurant, Ad Hoc, not to mention the yummy dishes at Redd.
Anyway, check out the full article for yourself here.
