A historic Napa Valley winery is set to become a new boutique hotel if its owners’ recent proposal is approved by the Napa County Planning Commission.
The plans would see the Freemark Abbey winery converted into a 79-room boutique hotel for Napa Valley tourists.
The rooms would be spread across five buildings which, due to their historic nature, can undergo no structural changes.
An environmental impact review is being prepared, while the Napa County Planning Commission will likely not see plans until mid-2021.
In addition to guest rooms, the 14-acre hotel complex will also include a fitness pavilion and a conference space.
The site’s original winery was built in 1886 by Napa Valley’s first female winemaker, Josephine Tychson.
