The perfect getaway combines a tranquil setting, great people, intriguing food and remarkable wines. Invite five of your favorite people to join you and escape to the Napa Valley for a bountiful experience for three couples filled with nature, nurture and delectable times.
Arrive at the 157-acre site tucked into a private Upper Napa Valley canyon marked by ancient oaks, majestic hills, a rock-hewn stream and private lake. Here you’ll discover the renowned Napa Valley spa resort, Calistoga Ranch. This ultimate expression of the Napa Valley experience is where you’ll enjoy two nights’ accommodations.
Calistoga Ranch is a rarefied luxury retreat where nature not only coexists with, but helps create, a completely new level of connection, comfort and contentment. Every detail, each dedicated staff member, conspire to bring a deep sense of enrichment and renewal. From a celebration of Napa wine and food to restorative Napa spa offerings, experience a seamless mingling of the outdoors and in for endless inspiration.
After an invigorating, renewing day at the Ranch, it’s time for a very special dinner at Vice Versa winery hosted by proprietors, Samantha & Patrice Breton and Martin R. Reyes, the first Master of Wine of Mexican descent. Enjoy a fabulous evening of fine cuisine, great conversation and international wines of stellar vintages from Patrice’s personal collection and library wines from Vice Versa.
Patrice Breton has said: “I desperately wanted to make wines in Napa Valley because it felt alive with possibility and I loved Cabernet Sauvignon. Its New World location had already proven to be capable of producing world-class wines, but there was still a freedom to be creative, innovative, and to push boundaries. As a passionate entrepreneur with a deep love for creativity, science, art and culture, Napa seemed to be the perfect place for me.”
The astounding success and impressive reputation of Vice Versa winery speaks volumes about the results of their exacting passion. Said Breton: “We believe in allowing the essence of our vineyards to shine through. We strive to craft fine, world-class wines that are distinctive expressions of their regions. Wines that are hedonistic and seductive, but so authentic they speak of their grape varietals, individual vines, soils, climates, and the people who help create them.” You’ll discover the results for yourself.
As your keepsake of this amazing experience, you’ll take home ten Double Magnums of Vice Versa wines from the 2017 vintage—one each of Vice Versa Platt Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, Vice Versa Platt Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Vice Versa Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Vice Versa Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Vice Versa Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Vice Versa Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Vice Versa Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard BBS Cabernet Sauvignon, Vice Versa Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard BBS Cabernet Sauvignon, Vice Versa Beckstoffer Las Piedras BBS Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and Vice Versa The Magnificent Seven Cabernet Sauvignon.
