Moxi Events planned a trip to Napa Valley! A luxury car brand rewarded their top dealers with a three night, four day stay at one of the country’s most relaxing and amazing resorts, Calistoga Ranch.
Each couple enjoyed their own private lodge as well as four days full of wining and dining. Highlights include, dinner in the Wine Cave at Calistoga Ranch, lunch with Napa Valley legend Robin Lail, lunch at Kelly Fleming Wines, Dine Arounds at Archetype and Goose & Gander in downtown St. Helena, dinner at The Restaurant at Meadowood which has been awarded three stars from Michelin Guide in 2011, 2012 and 2013. One of only two restaurants in the state of CA with that rating. Christopher Kostow, Executive Chef at The Restaurant at Meadowood is a James Beard Award Winner for Best Chef in the West. The group also experienced wine tastings and tours with boutique wineries in the Valley. Many of the owners of the wineries joined the group (Keever Vineyards, Arkenstone, Vineyard 29, Failla, Chateau Boswell).
The trip’s amenities included, a Patagonia vest for him, cashmere wrap for her, personalized signed cookbook from Chef Christopher Kostow, Woodhouse Chocolates and wine from each vineyard they visited. Also, a little something provided to each couple at check in to beat the wine hangover – Rally pills, Advil, gum, Altoids and a Tide stain pen.
