Who says it’s not possible to have the best of both worlds? The winning bidders will indulge in two of the most enchanting vacation spots on earth: the serene and glittering island of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos and the secluded paradise of Knights Valley in California.
Begin your journey with a private jet flight to the island of Providenciales, home to the resort of Amanyara. With a small number of rooms, a service ratio of up to six staff members for each guest, world-class dining and pastoral settings that blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape, Amanyara will cater to whims you didn’t even realize you had.
Nestled on the secluded shores of an 18,000-acre nature reserve, Amanyara’s lush tropical pavilions overlook a half-mile of white sand beaches and the turquoise waters of Providenciales’ Northwest Point Marine National Park. Your party will relax in a private villa offering consummate privacy and space in natural surroundings. Generously proportioned living areas are set around a black infinity pool and hardwood deck. Your residence will be serviced by villa hosts and a personal chef.
You’ll tour Providenciales during a private boat excursion, exploring the largest island in the Turks and Caicos. Your boat will pass along the cluster of tourist resorts on Grace Bay as well as the relatively isolated beach at Long Bay. There are remnants of Caribbean piracy at Osprey Rock, Sapodilla Hill and the ruins of Cheshire Hall plantation, a sisal and cotton plantation owned by the British loyalist Thomas Stubbs from the 1790s until 1810. For an interlude of underwater seclusion, snorkel on the extensive coral reef that surrounds the island.
Amanyara’s cuisine fuses the vibrant flavors of the Caribbean with Asian refinement. Your evening meals will be accompanied by selections from Knights Bridge Winery, chosen by Kelley and Jim Bailey.
As difficult as it is to leave the paradise of Providenciales, you’ll be headed for a destination just as exceptional: the secluded Knights Valley, home to Knights Bridge Winery. Located north of Calistoga in a narrow valley that bridges Napa and Sonoma, Knights Valley is one of the last remote corners of California wine country that remains undeveloped.
In 2006, Jim Bailey discovered a 50-acre hillside parcel in Knights Valley that was perfect for cultivating exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Today the property encompasses more than 100 acres, and the wines are made in a new state-of-the art winery, designed by legendary architect Howard Backen and completed in July 2021.
Your party will find relaxation during the three nights’ stay at the spectacular Knights Bridge residence, where you’ll enjoy a private tour of the winery and caves, where winemaker Derek Baljeu will share barrel tastes of Draco Dormiere, a pinnacle blend of the estate’s red Bordeaux varieties. Then the group will enjoy a tasting of the estate’s wines and taste the range of the estate’s wines, including many of their highly rated, vineyard-designated gems. During dinner in the wine cellar with the Baileys and Derek Baljeu, you’ll receive insights into the growing and crafting of some of the region’s most exceptional grapes and taste selections from the Bailey’s personal library.
Before you leave California, you’ll make the trip to Geyserville for dinner at the newly reimagined Cyrus Restaurant. Remodeled by Chef Douglas Keane, the fusion tasting menu can include upwards of 20 courses and weaves the culinary traditions of Japan, France and the regional United States through a dining journey.
In addition, the winning bidders will receive four etched Jeroboam bottles of Knights Bridge’s finest offerings.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to indulge in two separate versions of paradise: Raise your paddle and bid high for the kids!
