As someone who spends a ton of time exploring Wine Country, I’ve found a few favorites I love to visit when I’m in Napa or that I recommend you check out. If you’re looking for my favorite Napa Wine Country suggestions see my Top 10 Napa Wineries here, or for Sonoma, check out my Top 10 Sonoma Wineries list here. As you can tell I love any area of Wine Country with great experiences, delicious wine and awesome people to meet. Happy Napa Dining.
The Acacia House at Las Alcobas Napa Valley
A newer addition to the Napa dining scene is the Acacia House located at the Las Alcobas Hotel in St. Helena. I visited both the hotel and the restaurant in September and had a fabulous stay. I dined at The Acacia House for brunch, lunch and dinner so really after having every meal they offer with them I can attend it’s fabulous. Chef Chris Costentino is leading the Culinary program and an industry pal, Michael Ploetz is running the restaurant. It’s incredible. With delicious food, a great wine list you’ll have a hard time deciding what to choose from and a stunning setting this is a Napa gem I suggest you hurry in to experience.

The incredible brunch I enjoyed at The Acacia House on their beautiful victorian wrap around porch. Amazing setting, delicious food and fabulous service. My kind of Napa dining experience.
The beautiful interior of The Acacia House Restaurant. It is so intimate it feels like you’re dining in someone’s home, unlike some restaurants that lacks that that familiar feel to it.
