Beautiful Setting for the Thursday Evening Dinner!


The Thursday Evening Dinner Event will take place at Artesa Winery. Transportation will be provided from the hotel to the winery and back. Space is limited and the dinner will sell out! Over 25 years ago, Spain’s oldest winemaking family ventured to a new world: a sea-facing hillside in the Napa Valley, with rocky soils and a favorable coastal climate. It was here in Carneros that Artesa planted new roots, building upon a 460-year winemaking legacy to create the next generation of estate-grown, artisan wines. Artesa is a testament to the harmony between nature and architecture, a skillful example of interaction between structure and environment. Designed by renowned Barcelona architect Domingo Triay and built in the early 1990’s, the avant-garde structure was conceived to blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. Set into the highest hill of the 350-acre estate with a protective covering of native grasses, the winery is kept naturally cool by its earthen construction. On the interior, two stories below the main entrance, is the meticulously managed barrel room where small wine lots are fermented, aged and artfully blended.
