WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. — A Southern California inn set in a private vineyard is offering a new way to enjoy California wines.
In November, the 141-room Westlake Village Inn, 40 minutes north of Los Angeles, opened Stonehaus, a gourmet coffeehouse by day and a wine bar and tasting room by night.
Tuscan country homes inspired Stonehaus’ architecture. Nestled among the old-growth olive trees and vines of the hotel’s private vineyard, the building has a stone facade, Italian tile roofs, a stone fireplace and a patio with a waterfall. Its 3,100 square feet of space includes an elegant tasting room with a Bordeaux table for intimate wine tastings and a spacious patio with vineyard and mountain views. The space lends itself to sommelier-led tastings, pairings and exclusive private dinners.
The Westlake Village Inn’s private label vintage wine is available along with California and international varietals, among them more than 45 wines by the glass. A menu of fine cheeses and charcuterie also is offered.
Adjacent to the 18-hole Westlake Village Golf Course, the property has 17 acres of outdoor space, the European-style restaurant Mediterraneo and the martini bar and nightspot Bogie’s.
