When planning a romantic evening in Napa Valley you don’t need to overthink the small stuff like chocolate and roses. With what looks like little effort, wine country has all the makings for romance: acres of vineyards, seemingly never ending glasses of wine, and eateries that make your mouth water just thinking about them.
Wine may be what made the area famous, but eating in Napa Valley is an anticipated part of any visit. With more than 125 restaurants, Napa Valley has earned more Michelin Stars per capita than any other wine region in the world.
Good wine and good food taste better together. And with the two, romance just seems to come naturally. Whether you’re dining in the cozy courtyard at Celadon, eating at Napa Valley’s first and only “Izakaya-style” (Japanese pub) restaurant Miminashi, or were able to snag a sought-after reservation at French Laundry, enchanting meals are a daily occurrence in Napa Valley. Some are pricey, but it’s not all about Michelin stars. Delicious dishes are made for every taste, budget and romance.
