Since the early 1990s, the small town of Yountville (population 3,000) has pivoted to embrace wine tourism. The town’s transformation in the years since has been remarkable. Today, Yountville has an absolute bonanza of top-quality tasting rooms, restaurants, hotels and inns – and the world has noticed. The town is a magnet for visitors from around the globe. How did this happen?
