Few of the historic sites in Napa offer the luxurious atmosphere of the Maisonry Wine Collective. Built in 1904, this stone building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A popular historic destination in Yountville, since Maisonry opened in 2008, it has also been earning a reputation for its unique wine tasting offers. Wine flights are available outside by the fire pit, in the gardens amongst exquisite art, or in the historic house itself. An intimate tasting can be arranged in the Maisonry Great Room, which has been recently restored. Until 2007, the building was operated as a boutique inn with seven rooms, called Burgundy House Inn. Architect Douglas Thornley sought to restore the building to its original character and state.
Similar to other historic sites in Napa, preserving Maisonry for future generations
was the main goal of the architect. Structural reinforcements needed to be done
as space was opened up, allowing for more natural California light. This restoration
has won awards for outstanding adaptation and design. Now home to the Maisonry
Wine Collective, the historic building features boutique and limited-edition
wines. Guests can make an appointment for a wine flight and choose the location
of their tasting, offering a uniquely personal wine-tasting experience in Napa.
The Maisonry Great Room is a popular choice for its blend of historical and
contemporary works. A truly unique setting in Napa
Valley, the wine served at Maisonry is an added pleasure to any evening
spent at this historic location.
