The Meritage Resort and Spa - River East

Stay at The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, CA

Newly Expanded, 4-Star Wine Resort in the Heart of Napa

Beyond The Meritage Resort and Spa’s iron gates, rows of grapevines stretch across rolling hills. The 4-star, Tuscan-inspired property lies in the heart of Napa and embraces the valley's wine culture. It's not hard to find a good glass of wine at The Meritage—the resort produces its own varietals at Trinitas Cellars and serves them in a tasting room and restaurant that blends Italian and Californian influences. Guest rooms even come with a welcome bottle of wine. But this resort isn’t just about wine—with its newly-completed $40 million expansion, visitors can now sip on a cocktail from an expert mixologist while bowling on one of six luxury lanes in the new Crush Ultra Lounge.

The resort's 22,000-square-foot Estate Wine Cave impresses guests with its sheer size and Old-World Florentine architecture. Housed within the cave is Spa Terra, named one of the world’s top 100 spas by Spas of America. The spa’s body treatments range from romantic couples experiences to the La Dolce Vita, which includes a Dolce body treatment, a Terra massage, and European facial, followed by a spa lunch and a glass of wine. Also tucked away in the cave is the Trinitas Tasting Room, made from natural-stone walls and dark woodwork. Tastings may feature house label wines such as moscato, pinot noir, and cabernet sauvignon.

Chefs at the in-house restaurant, Siena, prepare locally sourced, Tuscan-influenced fare such as the rotisserie Fulton Valley chicken and herb-marinated grilled lamb chops. The recent expansion also includes Blend Café, an Italian-inspired eatery with tempting gelato, strong espresso, and fresh pastries. Back in their rooms, guests may opt to stomp their own grapes in a roomy marble bathtub, or cap off the night with a complimentary bottle of wine.

Napa, California: Sprawling Vineyards and Italian and Californian 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 cuisine with Italian and Californian influences. 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.

The room was very nice, the staff was friendly, and the massage was very relaxing. Furthermore, the complimentary bottle of wine was delicious and the cave aspect of the spa resort was very unique.
