Wine lovers who visit the Napa Valley know that the only disappointing part of their trip is that moment when they must leave after a few days or a week.

If you yearn to immerse yourself in the Napa lifestyle and live like a local, then this lot is for you. The winning bidders will be able to spend 30 nights in a luxurious home situated in the midst of the Calistoga winegrowing appellation, close to everything that makes Napa special.

Your residence for one month will be Beautiful Day, a gated, private oasis where relaxation and indulgent living thrive. The luxury ranch is ideally located only 30 minutes from the city of Santa Rosa and its small but convenient commuter airport. Set in the foothills of the famed Diamond Mountain, this 3,200 square-foot contemporary ranch house is nestled within 20 acres of vines. While private and secluded, the home is only a short drive to the best restaurants and world-class wineries in Napa Valley. Guests can easily explore the nearby shops in St. Helena, the historic town of Calistoga or relax by the pool or fireplace at the estate. The winning couples will also have exclusive use of a 2023 Aston Martin DBX SUV for two weeks to explore around town.

The custom home offers a generous open floor plan designed for entertaining, with a newly remodeled chef’s kitchen as the focal point. An accordion wall of glass opens to the lavender meadow with its breathtaking heated pool and spa. The four bedrooms and three and one-half baths include a Master King with vineyard views and three Queen Rooms. There is also an office for those who need to check in with work remotely.  A separate living room, complete with fireplace, boasts a lovely wood farm table that seats up to ten.

Cliff Lede will host you for a private dinner at his home during your stay, and your residence will be stocked with a full case of Cliff Lede and FEL wines. Two people each week will receive a massage at the Beautiful Day estate, and you’ll soar high above the Napa Valley on a hot air balloon ride.

When you get tired of cooking for yourself, indulge in one of America’s finest restaurants: The French Laundry in Yountville. Since 1994, Chef Thomas Keller has served refined, classic French cuisine with California influences; the menu, which changes daily, is based on the best ingredients obtained from local farmers, fishermen and foragers. The restaurant has held the ultimate accolade of Three Michelin Stars since 2007 and is the recipient of the Wine Spectator “Grand Award” for its wine cellar. One of the hardest reservations in the country to attain, a meal at The French Laundry is an unforgettable experience. The winning bidders’ party of four will savor a multi-course tasting menu with wine pairings.

This exceptional lot is an opportunity to live in Napa like a local, rather than a tourist, and take advantage of everything the wine country lifestyle has to offer. The right bid is all it takes to make it yours!
