Yountville is one of the cutest towns in California. I’m wondering why I haven’t spent more time there! This weekend I wine tasted at Silver Trident in downtown Yountville and it was such a memorable experience! Not only is it absolutely gorgeous inside – it’s furnished by Ralph Lauren AND the wine is delicious.
First thing’s first, if you haven’t visited Yountville yet, go! Such a quant, small little town in the Napa Valley wedged in between Napa and St. Helena. Within a couple mile strip, the downtown area is full of Michelin star restaurants and tons of small wine tasting rooms. Sounds like a dreamland if you ask me! 😉
Impeccable design matched with delicious wine
Upon walking into Silver Trident, the first thing you will be amazed by is the interior design. Um hi, can I live here please? The entire tasting room is decorated and furnished by Ralph Lauren – which also means that everything, yes everything, that you see is for sale! Add a little wine and this could get dangerous!
My fellow Napa Valley wine blogging friend, Mallory of Vine Living hosted us. She was such a great host! Be sure to ask for her when you go. The entire Silver Trident crew was very attentive, fun, friendly and welcoming.
Intimate wine tasting experience steps from downtown Yountville
One thing I extra love about Silver Trident is that all of the tastings are seated, and in their own little nook. It feels very intimate and special. In addition, they offer small bites to be paired with your tasting. Snacks? I love snacks. Who doesn’t love snacks?
The entire lineup was lovely. I particularly enjoyed their 2017 Apollo’s Folly Rosé, 2015 Benevolent Dictator Pinot Noir and the 2014 Twenty Seven Fathoms Cabernet Sauvignon. I really like that they offer a range of varietals, rather than focus on just reds or whites. You could bring any type of wine lover here and they would leave happy.
A big thank you to one of my favorite Napa Valley wine bloggers, Sara at Bordeaux Blonde, for joining me on a fun day of exploring Yountville and wine tasting at Silver Trident!
Make sure to add this one to your list next time you’re in the Napa Valley. Yountville can easily be passed through, but you’d be making a mistake if you did!
