Historical Napa Valley B&B Famed for Champagne Breakfast

Breakfast at The Ambrose Bierce House Bed & Breakfast is an event worthy of popping open the champagne. The Victorian B&B, established in 1872, is renowned for its complimentary morning feasts, during which dishes such as eggs benedict and stuffed french toast are paired with homemade croissants and glasses of bubbly. The spread is a great way to start a day of vineyard tours and wine tastings in scenic Napa Valley. This Getaway includes four or eight tasting passes valid at Hill Family Estate, Raymond Vineyards, Tamber Bey, and Flora Springs.

Thanks to a full-scale, floor-to-ceiling remodeling job, the inn’s four rooms are more inviting than ever. Dressed in soft yellows and rosy hues, each room features satellite TV, a jacuzzi tub, and a crystal decanter that’s filled with port each evening. The secluded Mollie Day room boasts an oak fireplace and private patio, whereas the cheerful Ambrose Bierce suite has a four-poster ivory-and-brass queen canopy bed as well as a private sitting room and fireplace. During idle hours you can relax in the inn’s hot tub or gaze at the redwood tree that stands adjacent to the covered patio.

Napa, California: Sprawling Vineyards and Farm-to-Table Dining

Located about a one-hour drive north of San Francisco, Napa Valley—a region that runs from Napa in the south to Calistoga in the north—is California's capital of all things grape. The valley's rolling hills are dotted with more than 400 family-owned vineyards, where oak barrels age vintage nectars and visitors are invited to stop, taste, and sniff private-label wines. Vineyards range from St. Helena’s popular Quintessa estate, a 280-acre property specializing in cabernet sauvignon, to lesser-known wineries such as Heibel Ranch Vineyards, which you can tour on the back of a 1963 Jeep. Although some wineries welcome drop-by tastings, your best bet is to make appointments ahead of time.

The valley's culinary scene has also risen to prominence, with chefs such as Thomas Keller spearheading a haute cuisine movement. The charming main streets of Yountville and St. Helena are studded with gourmet restaurants praised for their sustainable practices and fresh, farm-to-table cuisine. If you’re tired of sipping wine all day, grab a wheat beer or a pale ale at one of the dozens of local breweries.
