We are excited to share with you that there is a growing connection between modern yurts and some of the best wineries in the country. Why is this exciting? Mainly because they are a perfect pairing! Yurts go beautifully with the pace and pleasantries of vineyards and wineries.
Some are using yurts as lodging for guests on site, which allows guests to stay for several days to rest and enjoy the flavors, while others are using yurts as tasting rooms, often decorating them in an elegant style.
Yurts and Wineries Blend Well Together
Yurts and wineries share a peaceful, open characteristic. They are both of the land and the light. Yurt design naturally blends the inside with the outside, with site lines extending up and outward to the countryside.
Modern yurt design makes it easy to feel the connection between it all. Whether you are enjoying a tasting in a yurt or staying over in wine country, spending time in a yurt enhances the experience immensely.
A Yurt Stay in Wine Country
We highly recommend the experience of a wine-country yurt. However, we do recommend you connect with the vineyard early in the season, as those offering yurt lodgings are often booked far in advance. We also suggest you clarify with the establishment what is provided or included in the lodging. Some yurt stays are all-inclusive, with luxury bedding and stocked mini-fridges. But others may require you bring your own lanterns or bedding.
Some vineyards have fine dining on site during the summer, but most of the smaller boutique wineries do not. If food is not available on site, take care to map out the area ahead of time, so you don’t have to go without cheese.
