Road-tripping through Napa Valley’s celebrated vineyards, bucolic farms, and world-class restaurants is one of the most iconic road trips in the country. But leave it to Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley to raise the bar on how decadent a road trip can be with a once-in-a-lifetime journey through wine country. This October, the luxury hotel group will launch a new Four Seasons Drive Experience with a food- and wine-centric itinerary that’s the stuff dreams are made of — especially for anyone who’s dreamed of driving Napa’s idyllic, grapevine-lined country roads behind the wheel of a heart-racing Lamborghini or glamorous Aston Martin.
Following the success of the luxury hotel group’s two exclusive road trips across Tuscany and the European Alps, the latest Four Seasons Drive Experience is a seven-day journey through Napa Valley and surrounding areas. Lucky travelers will have the chance to get behind the wheel of a dream car they’ll get to call their own en route to some of the most exclusive wine and culinary hotspots in California’s wine country capitol.
In advance of the trip, which runs October 29 to November 4, guests will pick from a dream roster of luxury vehicles from Canossa Events (which organizes luxury driving events, classic car shows, and circuit races around the world). Will it be a flashy modern supercar like a lipstick red Ferrari 488 GTB, McLaren 600 LT Spider in sleek black, or a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Coupe in eye-catching lime green? Or perhaps you’ll opt for something sleek, elegant, and timeless like an Aston Martin Vantage Coupe, Rolls Royce Dawn, or Bentley Continental GT convertible?
Come October, once the hard part of picking a car from Canossa’s dream fleet is over, travelers who sign up for this once-in-a-lifetime experience will call the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley home for six nights while they explore the region. Three days will be spent behind the wheel of their heart-pumping ride, with exclusive access to some of the region’s hottest food and wine destinations.
That includes Hog Island oyster farm and restaurant on picturesque Tomales Bay, and SingleThread Farm, a 24-acre farm in Dry Creek Valley that supplies a treasure trove of biodynamically-grown fruit, vegetables, and flowers to its three Michelin-starred restaurant in downtown Healdsburg. Another prestigious stop is a tour and tasting at Opus One, the iconic Oakville winery founded by California wine country royalty Robert Mondavi, and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, of Château Mouton Rothschild.
A welcome dinner at the hotel’s charming Vineyard Barn — which boasts panoramic mountain views and 23 acres of cabernet vines — a ferry ride through San Francisco Bay, hot air balloon ride over the Valley, a finale night farewell gala dinner, and other surprise activities showcasing the best food, wine, and natural beauty Napa and Sonoma Counties have to offer will also be included in the Four Seasons-curated package.
In between, there will be plenty of downtime to enjoy the five-star resort’s enviable property on the Silverado Trail, which includes a dreamy spa, gorgeous pool complex, Elusa boutique winery, and Auro, and destination-worthy Michelin-starred restaurant helmed by Chef Rogelio Garcia.
In addition to the resort’s plush guest rooms and suites, its decadent Private Retreats are also available for booking, which are great options for group occasions like milestone birthday parties, family gatherings, or bachelor/bachelorette parties.
