Favorite of the Season
This season, we’re loving cozy spaces paired with wine. Stewart Cellars, across the street from the hotel, is newly designed with comfort and taste in mind. Enjoy the Tasting Hall featuring vaulted ceilings, a horseshoe shaped tasting bar and nearly floor to ceiling doors that open to courtyard views. The NOMAD Heritage Library includes a bohemian bookstore and luxe-wine tasting space complete with a wood-burning fireplace and covered outdoor terrace. The library hosts private tastings sure to delight.

Wine a Little
When in Napa, it’s easy to do as the locals do: drink and be merry.
If you’re looking for an off the beaten path type of wine tasting, check out the Napa Valley Wine Train. It’s like the Polar Express of wine country.
For something a little closer (as in walking distance) try some of our favorites. Part art gallery, part wine tasting room Ma(i)sonry is a distinct experience where you can peruse works of art with wine glass in hand. Jessup Cellars is a cozy tasting room full of curated art.
Dine in Yountville
Being in the heart of Napa Valley, visitors can expect the finest pours and most delectable eats. Some of our favorites that need no introduction include Michelin-star restaurant The French Laundry, local favorite Bouchon and of course, North Block’s very own Redd Wood, an inspired pizzeria concept from renowned chef Richard Reddington.
The best pairing with any glass of wine, is a great view to go with it.
Check out some breathtaking hikes in the area at the Archer Taylor Preserve. A crowd favorite is the Devil’s Well Waterfall Hike, where visitors can catch a luscious cascading waterfall at the end of a 7 mile hike (about 4.5 hours). Or grab one of our complimentary bikes for the day and ride through Yountville, being sure to stop by The French Laundry’s garden.
See Napa from another unique view – above in a hot air balloon!
With the most tranquil views and a truly thrilling mode of transportation, hot air balloons provide for a flight you’ll never forget. Scan the sky with Napa Valley Balloons (plus, North Block guests enjoy pick up/drop off and a mimosa breakfast following the trip!)
