A Luxurious Getaway at the Meritage Grand ReserveJul 05, 2023 03:26PM ● By Walnut Creek Magazine Team
Surrounded by the picturesque landscape of Napa Valley, the Grand Reserve at Meritage invites guests into a luxurious haven. Previously Vista Collina, the Meritage Resort’s sister property now shines as the Grand Reserve at Meritage, leveling up its portfolio of experiences and accommodations.
An artfully designed lobby, aptly named "the living room," welcomes with a warm atmosphere for enjoying an espresso or a glass of bubbly. This inviting aesthetic extends to the guest rooms where you'll find stunning vineyard vistas, sumptuous king-size beds, and personal patios for sipping cabs. And don’t forget your furry friends—they're greeted with fresh treats, bowls, and comfy beds.
After an invigorating hike up to one of Napa’s iconic sculptures, The Grape Crusher, take advantage of Spa Terra, the resort’s wellness retreat set within an underground wine cave. Then relax at one of the outdoor pools, heated year-round to a balmy 80 degrees, before a tasting flight at Anarchist Wine Co. or Trinitas Cellars.
Treat your taste buds to dinner at the on-site Olive & Hay restaurant showcasing farm-to-table Italian cuisine. A recent menu featured Zeppole al Tartufo—truffle mousse, arugula pesto on fried pizza dough—burrata with basil oil and strawberry jam, and halibut topped with Tuscan kale. Their wine list is a veritable tour of top vintners in the region.For a laid-back dining experience, settle on the sprawling community lawn with house-made pastas, sandwiches, and salads from Fivetown Grocery. On weekends, the area transforms into an event pavilion hosting the Blue Note Summer Music jazz series, Taste of Napa, and performances by Belinda Carlisle and Three Dog Night. If you book a Concert View Package, the party unfolds right in front of your private balcony.
