The world’s best-known road rallies are demanding: Dakar, the Mongol Rally, the Baja 1000. Thanks to Robb Report, however, a new breed of luxury rally has emerged. The winning bidders are invited to join the magazine’s third annual California Coastal Road Rally from Carneros to Pebble Beach, encompassing five days of upscale accommodations, world-class dining, exclusive brand experiences and more.

The Robb Report California Coastal Road Rally is less about challenging competition and more about camaraderie, adventure and fun. You’ll ride in ultimate luxury and style in your Bentley S or Speed derivative along the scenic coastal highway and experience the most luxurious pit stops on the road.

Partnering with Robb Report this year will be Aperture Cellars, the boutique Sonoma winery operated by Jesse Katz and inspired by his father Andy Katz. Aperture is a seamless combination of wine and art: Andy, one of the best photographers of his generation, took Jesse with him on his travels, many of which included photographing some of the world’s legendary wine estates. Those trips inspired Jesse to become a winemaker.

Today, Jesse Katz has become one of the most respected wine professionals in California—the first winemaker to be included in the Forbes “30 Under 30” list, a Wine Enthusiast “40 Under 40 Tastemaker” and a Wine Spectator “Rising Star.” After two decades learning from producers such as Pétrus, Screaming Eagle and Viña Cobos, he has searched for and isolated the top cool climate sites for his beloved Bordeaux varieties to thrive. In your nights during the rally, you’ll taste selections of Aperture’s vineyard-designed Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux-style blends.

Your journey begins at the Carneros Resort and Spa, a quintessential Napa Valley escape nestled on 28 acres surrounded by rolling vineyards. After a bon voyage lunch featuring the wines of Aperture Cellars and Devil Proof Vineyards, hosted by Jesse Katz, you’ll hit the road along the coast. During your odyssey, you’ll spend the night at the remarkable The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, followed by two nights at your ultimate destination, The Inn at Spanish Bay on Pebble Beach. Nestled among majestic pines, you’ll find the Inn to be an idyllic retreat. If you’re tired from the drive, unwind in the award-winning spa, but don’t miss the Spanish Bay Bagpiper, who plays every day at sunset, rain or shine.

As you gather for the final evening’s celebration reception and dinner, memories of the sights and thrills you’ve had will pale next to the new friends you’ve made. In the words of one of last year’s participants: “You may forget some of the roads, but the people you’ll remember.”

Memorable as it was, the Robb Report California Coastal Road Rally is just the beginning of your West Coast experience. You’ll spend an enchanting week in one of two Exclusive Resorts Private Residences, spacious enough to allow you to bring family and friends:

Lake Tahoe, California: The two Tahoe locations, at Northstar and Squaw Valley, offer outdoor activities, kid-friendly amenities and gourmet food outlets. Winter offers world-class skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and more; in summer, the tech crowds base themselves here to swim, waterski, hike and bike. Residences contain four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and range from 3,427 to 4,300 square feet.

Los Cabos, Mexico: Nicknamed the “End of the Earth,” Cabo San Lucas is located on the southern-most tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. In this oasis in the coastal desert, spend the day snorkeling, sailing, golfing or sport fishing. Afterward, indulge in Cabo’s newly emerged food scene, featuring restaurants from star chefs like Enrique Olvera. Residences include four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and contain between 3,120 and 4,380 square feet.

In addition, the winning couple will receive two keepsakes: a case of Jesse’s top wines from Aperture Cellars and Devil Proof Vineyards, plus a limited-edition Andy Katz photography piece.

This lot has it all: an unparalleled trip down the California coast in the car of your dreams, followed by a one-week vacation in complete luxury and comfort. When you make your winning bid, the only thing better is knowing you’re helping Collier County’s underserved kids.
