Napa Valley

Establishment neighborhood
Atrio Spa at Las Alcobas
1915 Main St., Napa Valley
The team of aestheticians here meditate before and after the workday. It’s a ritual that informs the healing treatments they perform, like the Bio Energy Remineralizing Facial, a rejuvenating ninety minutes in which skin is flooded with marine extracts and restored with the spa’s proprietary copper-and-amino-acid complex. The pore-opening lavender essential oil steam that’s part of the Allergy Relief treatment, which also includes a heavenly circulation-stirring massage, is another reason we’re in love with this place. That and the fact that the menu includes Shirodhara, an Ayurvedic therapy involving pouring oils, coconut water, and milk over the forehead for an incredibly soothing and—for our money—soporific effect.
Silver Oak
915 Oakville Cross Rd., Oakville
Silver Oak has long been lauded for its Cabernets–consistently selling out of its releases for years (the same goes for the Pinot Noirs and Sauvignon Blancs produced by tis sister winery, Twomey). Run by Vintner David Duncan, the absolutely gorgeous space is located in the center of the valley, in the middle of Oakville. The winery throws the biggest release-day parties of the year, a tradition (and category) cemented since the 1980's when wine enthusiasts started showing up the day of the release. This is an all-around beautiful, successful vineyard not to be missed.
