I was excited to be invited to one of Yountville's top getaway spots, Bardessono, for a media lunch at their restaurant, Lucy. Bardessono is a Leed Platinum Certified Hotel located in the Napa Wine Country.
When we first arrived at Bardessono, we were first treated to a seasonal specialty fig cocktail, made for us by their resident mixologist, Brady Wilkens from Lucy Restaurant. With cocktail in hand we were given a tour of the hotel property including the rooftop pool (where I could spend hours), spa store and their beautifully designed hotel rooms.
We then were given a tour of the Lucy garden by Executive Chef Victor Scargle. Victor and his staff go out to the garden everyday to see what is fresh to inspire them for the menu that day.
Next we sat down at a gorgeous communal table situated in the middle of Lucy's gardens. We enjoyed a leisurely multi-course meal where every other person had a variety of different courses in order for us to sample all of the dishes that Lucy had to offer. Lucy's wine sommelier, Anani Lawson, came to share with us all of his wine pairings for the lunch. He shared two of his favorite local wineries to visit (though he said the list could go on forever) - Chase Cellars for their Zinfandel & Falla Wines for their Pinot Noir.
You can book the Lucy garden table in the Spring, Summer and Early Fall which includes a chef-led tour of their garden, a specialty cocktail prepared by their mixologist and then a multi-course meal at their communal garden table.
Thank you to Bardessono & Lucy for a delicious meal and a truly relaxing day in the wine country!
