Carneros Resort and Spa - the 28-acre luxury resort nestled in Napa Valley’s Los Carneros AVA region, invites travelers and locals alike to come together and celebrate the harvest season with an array of distinct new offerings that showcase the very best of fall in Napa Valley.
New Culinary Gardens
Maintaining its agriculture roots and as an extension of its existing farm-to-table program, the resort is delighted to kick off harvest season with the unveiling of its new eight raised-bed culinary gardens. Located on property and directly in front of the resort’s signature restaurant, FARM at Carneros the new gardens feature 50 varieties of organic herbs and vegetables as well as fresh eggs from the resort’s chicken coop, granting seamless access for the resort’s culinary team to showcase only the highest quality of ingredients year-round. Managed by culinary gardener Marley Dawson and new chef de cuisine John Carney, the duo will take FARM’s garden-to-table programming to new heights and create a memorable dining destination that’s heavily influenced by the micro seasons of Napa Valley. Deputing later this year, a new outdoor gathering table will also take center stage for dining patrons to enjoy a more intimate experience in the garden alongside chef Carney and his team. From handpicking one’s own produce, private gardening and cooking demonstrations, to gathering around for a family-style meal, the new culinary gardens will offer a community for all to enjoy and celebrate the rich agriculture bounty that each season brings.
Fall-Inspired Spa Treatments
As the winds change and cooler temperatures slowly start to seep through, the resort’s luxurious guest-only Spa at Carneros is providing a tranquil escape for guests to set intentions for balance prior to the frenetic energy that arises with the pre-holiday rush. Guests are invited to restore balance in their lives with treatments that focus on a holistic approach to balancing skin, energy and posture to help maintain focus through the year’s end. The spa’s two new signature experience, “self-care package” and “restorative relaxation package” allow guests to choose their own intention and experience a balancing aroma wellness scrub, massage and soak, alongside a nourishing blend of botanicals that are handpicked based on one’s intention. Prior or post-treatment, guests can savor the experience on the spa’s private outdoor deck while enjoying wine country views and a specially curated fall-inspired tea that features a blend of turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and other fragrant spices, to truly awaken the mind, body and spirit this season.
For the first time ever and as the ultimate and most luxurious way to experience Napa Valley’s harvest season with reunited family or friends, the resort is offering guests the opportunity to buyout one of its idyllic neighborhoods. With 100 individual standalone cottages located throughout 17 distinct neighborhoods, the exclusive experience allows up to 20 guests to gather in one of Napa’s most pristine settings for a multi-day neighborhood harvest block party. Families and friends can enjoy their own private neighborhood for nightly live music, decadent front yard picnics curated by the resort’s chef, backyard movie screenings, game nights, stargazing and more. Rates starting from $15,000.
Fall Community Event Series
Opening its doors to the local community, the resort invites guests and locals alike to continue celebrating the joys of harvest long after the wineries are closed for the day. From weekly live music by local artists at FARM Pavilion; a monthly Vinyl + Wine series, featuring a decadent raw bar station, delicious small bites and a rotating list of guest Napa and Sonoma wineries pouring wines by the glass; to supporting the new live art series that pairs the best of Broadway with the best of wine country, Broadway and Vine, Carneros Resort and Spa comes alive with the excitement and rush of harvest season.
