I love the Napa Valley. It’s one of my favorite places to visit. My most recent trip was definitely the best. I was able to combine my love for good design, great food and fine wine with a bit of adventure. I stayed at Calistoga Ranch. Everything about the resort is amazing. From each lodge and residence, to the fabulous restaurant and spa, to the view from the top of the hiking trail, the attention to detail is phenomenal!
(I apologize for the sad cell photos in advance. It’s the only tool I had available during my stay.)

The week ended with an incredible dinner in a private dining room at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, in St. Helena. Talk about never missing a detail. Between the food, the wine and the good company our evening was divine by design!
