These Luxurious Wine Country Resorts Offer Year-Round Access to Life at a Vineyard



The villas at the new Four Seasons Resort & Residences Napa Valley will offer a lifestyle immersed in winemaking.Napa Valley’s fall “crush,” when grapes are harvested, is perhaps wine country’s most intense few months of the year. Visitors throng to the area for a glimpse of the time-honored winemaking process and to partake in rituals like stomping the grapes. However, for oenophiles whose thirst isn’t quenched by a once-a-year immersion, the experience of life at a vineyard—from picking grapes to creating a Bordeaux blend—can soon be had year-round, and in a very luxurious format.

The upcoming Four Seasons Resort & Residences Napa Valley, located in Calistoga off the Silverado Trail, will encourage guests and residents to have their wine and make it too. When it opens in 2019, the property will be home to its own five-acre vineyard and winery, and offer expert guidance in the various stages of winemaking. Each residential villa will also have an owner’s wine cellar and outdoor terraces for entertaining in the vineyard setting. A-list, St.Helena-based designer Erin Martin is bringing her distinctive style to the interiors (leading hospitality design firm EDG is handling the restaurant), and shares that the spaces will have the “casual, comfortable, outdoor lifestyle of Napa.” At press time, one of the remaining 20 farmhouse-style residences available was a 4-bedroom home for $5.66 million.

The villas at the new Four Seasons Resort & Residences Napa Valley will offer a lifestyle immersed in winemaking.Real estate insiders are also keeping an eye on Calistoga Hills Resort, an 88-acre property that will be managed by Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.  While there is no official word about the scope or timeline of the project, plans filed with the city indicate that there will be 13 custom residences and 20 residence club units, along with 110 hotel rooms. The company has also purchased two adjacent vineyards, suggesting that an onsite winery may also be in the works.
