I am so excited to share with you guys ALL ABOUT the Vista Collina Resort in Napa Valley!! If you haven’t already, make sure to check out my blog on how we took on Napa with a baby on my hip! You can find it here.
Vista Collina Resort, is a resort like no other…
Acres of sun-soaked hillside vineyards. Beautiful accommodations near downtown Napa top things to do, paired with luxurious amenities. Indulgent spa treatments in the serenity of an underground Estate Cave. The best of Napa Valley’s legendary wineries only moments away. The Vista Collina Resort blends relaxed elegance with warm hospitality to bring you the ultimate vacation experience with exciting Napa activities.
If you read my blog, you saw we spent the entire 4 days exploring the resort and talking advantage of every single amenity.
Want to hear something rare? The rooms EXCEED the pictures online! Napa is all about wine, and the sweeping views of vineyards from our Premier Rooms will inspire guests for the days of tasting to come. A modern 425 sq. ft. oasis outfitted with plush, modern furniture and a serene color palette create the perfect respite in Wine Country at our accommodations near downtown Napa.
My favorite part of the hotel is the tasting rooms on-site. You can enjoy some incredible local wine without having to worry about driving.
THE TASTING ROOMS
Vista Collina Resort curates the best of Napa into a unique Wine Country experience. The centerpiece of the resort are nine Napa Valley tasting rooms featuring the best boutique wineries. With an onsite Fivetown Grocery, Food & Wine Center and expansive 16,000-square-foot event lawn, Vista Collina is a destination all its own. And with a robust, curated calendar that’s always changing, you’ll want to visit our Napa Valley wine bars and event space often to experience everything the Napa Valley has to offer, all in one place.

Once Addy was up we got ready and went down to the tastings rooms on-site. Vista Collina has 9 local tasting rooms that are so unique to each other. We decided to try Anarchist Wine and scheduled a tasting the night before.
They had no problem with us having Addy in the stroller watching Frozen on her tablet (hey sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do) while we enjoyed ourselves on their outdoor patio trying some fabulous wine! Honestly, EVERY wine was our favorite and ended up doing all 3 tasting packages they had. We ended up taking advantage of them waiving the tasting fees when you purchase 3 bottles of wine, and came home with one of every bottle we loved.
What is so fun about Anarchist Wine, is their marketing. So many fun names like Rose Against The Machine which is described as, “A free spirit, breaking away from the ordinary. Ignoring all maxims, this sassy rosé shows up for any occasion, whether dressed to the nines or kicking back by the pool.” and Conspiracy Theory which they describe as, “Deceptively approachable, this wine suggests complexities below the surface. Every sip reveals more questions than answers. With limited production, demands will mount for the government to release its secret reserves.” Both are bottles we took home & got extras for gifts!
We thought we were going to want to try the other tasting rooms but we had SO much fun at Anarchist, we spent the whole afternoon enjoying ourselves as a family, incredible wine, and fresh air. The best part?!! You can enjoy yourselves at any of the on-site tasting rooms without having to worry about driving!!! Wineries are so fun but not when you have a baby & have to drive back to your hotel. But a winery right below our room?! Yes, please!
After a day of drinking incredible wine, treat yourself to one of the top spas in America!! Right at your resort.

And because the day isn’t over, wrap up your day of luxury and treating yourself with a meal at Olive & Hay.
OLIVE & HAY
Dinner at Olive & Hay was a truly special experience. We get nervous bringing Addy to nice restaurants but as long as there is food, we are good. I am so sad I didn’t do a better job at getting our servers name because he deserves a raise.
I have never met someone so genuinely nice & accommodating. He didn’t see Addy as an inconvenience but instead treated her like a special guest. He brought out her spaghetti basically 5 minutes after us sitting down (which is SO appreciated) and every time he checked on us, he asked if we needed anything for her. Not only that, he went the extra mile to talk to her, smile, and was just the sweetest ever.
I have never had a meal like it! We both got a ginormous steak that was cooked PERFECTLY with the most unique & tasty scalloped potatoes we have ever had. For dessert our server recommended their play on beignets, and let me tell you- IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
The Fun Never Ends
