A once-in-a-lifetime Labor Day weekend in Napa Valley is waiting for you! Curated in partnership with some of the industry's most notable names, this trip will be truly unforgettable. A private jet provided by Hopkinson Luxury Aircraft Sales will fly four (4) people to the heart of wine country. Upon arrival, black car service will transport you to Auberge Resorts Collection's Stanly Ranch for five (5) nights and six (6) days in two (2) stunning indoor-outdoor suites. The property's Mercedes-AMG cars are yours to drive, enabling you to explore beyond the banks of the Napa River that surrounds this modern escape.


An itinerary to remember has been thoughtfully planned for you and your guests, filled with extraordinary experiences at every turn. First on the vintner a-list: Chris Phelps. Trained in Bordeaux at Chateau Petrus, he has shaped some of Napa Valley's most influential wines. Join Chris and his son Josh Phelps for lunch or dinner to talk all things Caymus, Petrus, Ad Vivum, Inglenook, and beyond. Donum Estate will welcome you for a tasting and art tour, followed by lunch in the scenic vineyard. Kerrin Laz of Dean & DeLuca fame will guide you through K. Laz's The Optimum, her top-tier tasting of six (6) wines selected from her own collection of more than 500 labels at the location of your choice. Enjoy the view from the western hills of Oakville during a tour and tasting at Promontory, situated on land revered as some of the most special in viticulture worldwide. A tour and tasting at Hudson Ranch is also to be treasured.

Beyond wine tasting, delectable cuisine is not to be missed. Declared by the Michelin Guide to be what "may be known as the greatest cooking space in America", one of the most coveted reservations in the country is yours: dinner at Thomas Keller's iconic The French Laundry. A tasting menu with wine pairings in Stanly Ranch's private garden will also delight your palate and senses with its intimate outdoor ambiance.


Feeling the need to trade the leisurely pace of Napa Valley for a little speed? Channel your inner race car driver at Sonoma Raceway while testing the limits of your Mercedes-AMG before you switch gears to the Ferrari waiting for you to take its wheel and accelerate. Finally, unwind from the excitement and let your adrenaline slow with a relaxing spa day at acclaimed Stanly Ranch Spa, Halehouse.
