Why Napa

Nowhere else in the world can you find as much brilliant innovation paired with age-old tradition. Futuristic cities juxtaposed with stunning ancient history; busy streets and towering skyscrapers, a tranquil ryokan tucked in the mountains. If you’re fascinated by tradition and by artisans who’ve been perfecting their crafts for centuries, or believe that every second of every day should be filled with adventure, Japan is the place.

Moments That Matter

No matter how you choose to curate your experience, one constant remains. Thanks to our profound relationships, we will walk the vineyards of private estates in the company of winemakers that produce the best wines in the country, hear the story of entrepreneurs in the hospitality sector and talk to farmers and ranchers on the vanguard of new agriculture. 

Your Private Experience

Who It’s For

Our Napa experience is for groups looking for a tranquil space surrounded by innovation and inspiration—we'll walk the vineyards with the area's leading winemakers and immerse ourselves in Napa's slow food movement.

When to Travel

Napa is an exceptional visit all year round. However, we especially like late spring and late summer as the days are warm but the nights are crisp.

Make It Yours

A round table with the area's most innovative chefs and winemakers? A hands-on demonstration in biodynamic viticulture? Whatever your purpose we can craft the ideal retreat for your group in Napa.

Where We Sleep

Our luxury hotels are the ideal combination of modern elegance and a rustic, only-in-California vibe that pairs perfectly with a retreat experience.


Nestled in tree-lined valleys and rooted deeply in history and heritage, our basecamps in Napa combine Wine Country’s distinctive blend of the rustic and refined, with an acute sensitivity to the nuances of comfort and the rhythm of the seasons.

Unique access to people and places. This was a trip we could not have done without Modern Adventure.

Every person involved with leading and guiding was top notch—friendly, knowledgeable, fun, kind—it doesn’t get better.
