The town's name is derived from the name of early pioneer George Calvert Yount. Yount was considered responsible for establishing the first vineyard in the Napa Valley.

Yountville is a noted destination for gourmet diners, and has two Michelin-starred restaurants, The French Laundry and Bouchon Bistro.

Contents

Yountville was named after George C. Yount in 1867. Previously the town was named Sebastopol in 1855. However, a town in nearby Sonoma County had already laid claim to this name, so the town was renamed after George Yount's death.

Among the restaurants in Yountville is The French Laundry, owned by chef Thomas Keller, with a three-star rating from the Michelin Guide, and a two-time winner of the title "best restaurant in the world" by "The Worlds 50 Best" restaurant rating organization. Keller also owns another restaurant in Yountville, Ad Hoc. Michelin one-star restaurants in Yountville for 2015 also include Bouchon, another Thomas Keller restaurant. Two other Yountville restaurants have Michelin's "Bib Gourmand" rating: Philippe Jeanty's Bistro Jeanty and Redd Wood.

Gourmet dining in Yountville dates to 1977, when Philippe Jeanty opened the restaurant at Domaine Chandon, owned by French champagne house Moët & Chandon.

With more than one Michelin star per 1,000 residents, Yountville claims the most Michelin stars per capita of anywhere in North America.

Major employers in Yountville include the Veterans Home of California and The Vintage Estate. Domaine Chandon California is located immediately outside city limits.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 1.5 sq mi (4.0 km2), all of it land.

Yountville suffered a 5.2 magnitude earthquake on September 3, 2000.
