Fairmont Heritage Place recently offered an owner weekend retreat to neighboring Sonoma.  We thought it would be fun to recap and summarize their weekend adventures in wine country.

After the owners checked in on Friday evening they were treated to a four-course tasting menu dinner with wine pairings at Michelin-rated Sante Restaurant.  The owners enjoyed having the time to sit down with and get to know everyone.  The next morning they boarded a limo bus which transported them to the beautiful grounds of Chateau St. Jean Winery.  Even though it was raining the mood wasn’t dampened and as one owner put it “it added an element of adventure!” At Chateau St. Jean owners were given a VIP wine tasting and tutorial on the wines they were experiencing and then enjoyed lunch provided by Fairmont.  Afterwards the group boarded the limo bus and went uphill to Repris where they enjoyed a unique cave tour with wine tastings straight from the barrel.

Everyone then returned to Sonoma Mission Inn to relax and get ready for dinner.  Next the owners were taken to Benziger Winery where they enjoyed a private wine tasting and hors d’ oeuvres.  The owners then sat down to a cave dinner onsite at Benziger Winery catered by Fairmont. 

The following morning owners enjoyed access to Fairmont’s Willow Stream Spa, recently named amongst top spas by Conde Nast Traveler and one of the few in the United States to feature thermal mineral waters which flow 1,100 feet directly beneath the Inn.  While at the spa, owners enjoyed complimentary spa treatments, finishing off their stay.

Sounds as if a wonderful weekend was had by all.
