Two-Day Golf, Food and Wine Trip to Napa for Guys
The first day includes a One-Day Golf School with top golf coach Kris Moe and his Top 25 Golf School getaway that includes an estate-wine tasting at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, and of course food and wine at some of the best restaurants in Napa and Yountville, capped off by a Napa Valley beer dinner (because man cannot live by wine alone).
Breakfast – Drive up Saturday morning and fuel up for a full day of honing your game at Kris’ golf school and a full day of golf with a hearty breakfast at the club.
Lunch- Included in your golf school package. The ½ lb. burger and fries at the club is delicious. In the afternoon you’ll take your game out on the beautiful Chardonnay golf course with your pro and get some tips on how to save a few strokes.
Dinner – After golf, shower up and head to downtown Napa for some people watching and dinner at Norman Rose Tavern. Get there before 6 p.m. for Suds & Grub, with specials on beer and wine and appetite primers including hot wings and sliders. Then settle into a tufted leather banquette and order up classic American food by chef Michael Gyetvan.
Stay – End the day at The Westin Verasa, your luxurious home base in Napa, with a soak in the outdoor hot tub or a nightcap around the stone fire pit.
Day 2 (option for another half or full day of golf school)
Breakfast – Start the day right before you even leave the Westin, with a Bloody Mary breakfast at BANK Café, the casual bar and bistro from chef Ken Frank of famed La Toque.
Stop 1 – Head up the Valley to Stag's Leap Wine Cellars to taste their estate-grown and single-vineyard wines, and learn about the 1976 Paris Tasting, where their 1973 S.L.V. Estate Cabernet beat out the top-ranked French Bordeaux and stunned the world.
Lunch – Pop into Bouchon in Yountville for steak frites and other French bistro classics from legendary chef Thomas Keller. The Grand Plateau — a bounty of lobster, oysters, clams, mussels, shrimp and crab — makes a decadent appetizer for the table.
Stop 2 – Belly up to the bar or snag cushy chairs by the fireplace at 1313 Main St. in downtown Napa, and taste wines by the individual glass, flight or bottle. Their rotating menu of more than 1300 wines features selections from around the corner and around the world.
Dinner – Finish the day where it started, at Oxbow Market for dinner at Kitchen Door. Chef Todd Humphries serves up multi-ethnic comfort food — from Vietnamese pho to Korean short ribs to all-American chicken and biscuits — using local, seasonal ingredients. If the timing's right, you might even get in on one of their craft beer dinners.
