In California’s scenic Knights Valley, the three couples receive three nights’ accommodations at the beautiful home of Knights Bridge co-founder Jim Bailey. One of the most bucolic locations in California wine country, Knights Valley is one of the original five Sonoma County appellations and home to Knights Bridge Estate. The valley’s beauty and mineral-rich volcanic soils help produce world-class Chardonnay and Bordeaux varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc — wines that consistently earn acclaim from critics and wine lovers alike.
Jim’s home, designed by award-winning architect Howard Backen, is a hillside sanctuary overlooking the valley floor with sweeping views of Mount St. Helena. Each couple can luxuriate in their private Suites at the perfectly appointed Knights Bridge Estate. To relax and recharge, guests may refresh with a swim in the infinity pool, hike through the wooded hillside, or simply revel in the peace of Knights Valley.
While at the estate, your itinerary includes two tremendous dining experiences. In addition to the three couples, the winning bidder is welcome to invite six more guests to a special dinner in the estate’s 5,000-bottle wine cellar. Your dinner co-hosts are Jim and director of winemaking Douglas Danielak, named a “Winemaker to Watch” by Wine Spectator.
The lot also features an unforgettable dinner at the Michelin Three-starred restaurant, The Restaurant at Meadowood, renowned for its sustainably farmed California cuisine.
