Spottswoode’s Beth Novak Milliken and David Macllwraith of Triple Creek Ranch invite three joyful couples to join in a celebration of their shared friendship, with time spent in two remarkable places: Napa Valley in California and the Bitterroot Valley in Montana.
On the evening of your arrival in Napa, Beth will welcome you to the historic and private Spottswoode Estate, where you’ll enjoy an exceptional meal paired with wines from her family library, either in the Estate Home or on the terrace overlooking the Estate Vineyard. It’s only on the rarest of occasions that guests are invited to this small, family-owned winegrowing estate, so you’re sure to feel very special indeed.
The next day you are free to enjoy the day as you wish, with a visit to Spottswoode being most welcome! That evening, you will dine at either Charter Oak or The French Laundry; reservations will be arranged at the winner’s discretion, and Spottswoode will arrange for a special bottle or two from its cellar to accompany your delicious dinner.
Next, it’s onward to Western Montana, where you’ll discover an oasis of indulgence in the wilderness. Voted #1 in the Readers’ Choice Awards for “Top Resorts in The West” by Condé Nast Traveler, Triple Creek Ranch is an intimate, luxury Relais & Châteaux ranch resort designed for adults, and tucked among the towering pines on the southern side of Trapper Peak, the highest mountain in the Bitterroot Mountain Range. This unforgettable retreat merges unmatched natural beauty with plush comfort and exceptional personal service – with many amazing activities offered throughout.
On your first evening, enjoy an intimate reception with Beth and David, followed by dinner in the Main Lodge. The next night will have you donning casual attire and heading to The CB Ranch for an evening filled with enchanting entertainment and tasty barbecue. The final evening will be spent at the Chef’s Table savoring a seven-course tasting menu in the Main Lodge. Spottswoode wines will be poured on each of these evenings, and Beth will be there to toast to the good times with you.
Upon your return home, sit and sip your souvenirs from this journey, which will include an array of Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from three exceptional vintages – including the stunning 2015 vintage, which earned 100 points from Robert Parker Wine Advocate.
