The Sustainable Wine Experience at Bardessono

by Sandra Ramani

Napa Valley’s Bardessono takes full advantage of its wine-country location
It’s easy to breathe deeply at Bardessono. As one of the few LEED Platinum-certified resorts in the country, every detail has been designed to put guests’ minds at ease—from design features you’ll notice (hypoallergenic “smart” rooms with sensor-triggered blinds) and those you won’t (almost 1,000 solar panels and an underground geothermal water system), to perks you can taste (fresh ingredients from the on-site organic garden) and those you can take home (mini-bars with artisanal snacks and beauty products).

And now, the hotel is putting its unique twist on the Napa Valley’s signature attraction. Available in “Cab Season” (November to March), the Off-the-Beaten-Path Wine Experience connects you with small-production wineries selected based on your preferences. So if you’re into the culinary-wine connection, for example, you might stop at B Cellars, where every wine tasting is paired with chef-prepared bites sourced from the property’s gardens. If you’d like to learn more about organic wines, a tasting at Gamble—dedicated to 100-percent organic farming—will demonstrate how elegant sustainable wines can be. Back at the resort, continue relaxing with an organic Dr. Alkaitis facial or a massage with a seasonal oil blend, either in the spa or your room.
