DEPARTURES - Despite how much of California's wine country was lost in the devastating wildfires last October, much of it was also saved: the region’s main visitor corridors and most of its wineries were left unscathed. And so, as the area recovers—and tourism is still relatively low—now is the time to go. Below is our guide to the most noteworthy openings and under-the-radar spots to visit.
Vista Collina Resort
Opening this July, Vista Collina Resort is set to be Napa’s one-stop-shop with 145 rooms, nine tasting rooms, a farmers market, a restaurant, and a culinary center for guest chef-led classes and wine seminars. For those staying in the 39 suites that come with fully equipped kitchens, the hotel will also offer a new take on room service: guests will be able to select from seasonal recipes and have freshly-picked local produce delivered right to their doors.
