Pitch Perfect TerraVelo Tours’ glamorous tents make the most of Napa Valley’s bucolic splendor.
Napa Valley is of course lauded for its wine and posh hotels, but a new touring company is inviting visitors to indulge their inner gypset with an all-inclusive stay on the famed terroir itself. Beginning this month through January, Brooklyn-based TerraVelo Tours will decamp to the sun‑drenched Napa Valley hillsides and set up nine luxurious safari-style tents on the estate of Pope Valley Winery. The rural retreats allow guests to take in the sweeping views from the comforts of a well-appointed, spacious tent, outfitted with Italian linens and plush memory-foam beds.
Previously holding posts in Yellowstone, southern Utah and Woodstock, N.Y., the latest four-day weekend escape nestled on the 118-year-old property will expertly cater to all things Napa: Greet the day with a juice bar and sunrise yoga, explore neighboring cycling and hiking trails, sample local wines and olive oils, and end the day roasting s’mores by the campfire. The tour is a feast for the senses, from a pasta-making class to truffle hunting followed by a truffle-themed dinner. A private chef from Pope Valley Winery will cook all other meals, with an in-house winemaker on hand to refill empty glasses. These halcyon nights under the stars are all part of a unique experience the company aims to create. Says co-founder Rebecca Martin, “We hope that our guests can connect with their gorgeous surroundings, slow down and enjoy a mini break from their everyday lives.” Napa Weekend Escape, starting at $1,850 per person; Nov. 19 to Jan. 31; terravelotours.com. • LINDSAY KINDELON
