Auberge Resorts Collection, known for its unparalleled hospitality brand, is masterfully redefining the essence of luxury travel, as featured in the June issue of Wine Spectator magazine. Like the meticulously crafted vintages of the Carneros appellation, Auberge’s newly opened Stanly Ranch embodies a harmonious blend of communal and immersive experiences at the southern gateway to all Napa has to offer.
According to Marvin R. Shanken, Wine Spectator editor and publisher, Stanly Ranch “is as much about commitment to Napa as it is a statement of grand ambition.” Shanken says its deconstructed design nestled among scenic vineyards, with cottages, a central pool and proximity to downtown Napa “represent a modern vision of California wine country.”
Overland’s architectural design team of Bob Shemwell, Michael Monceaux, Dyami Luster and John Byrd collaborated with CCID and AvroKo to create a contemporary reinterpretation of the valley’s early farmstead buildings, built of metal, wood and stone, with a deconstructed approach that creates a narrative between the land and guests. The more social experience combines not only amazing wine and farm-to-table culinary fare at on-site restaurant Bear, but live music, miles of natural trails and Halehouse Spa, where locals and guests stay, play, and renew.
“The shared experience of drinking wine and meals becomes a powerful reminder of our interconnectedness and the inherent joy that can be found in coming together,” said Shemwell. “Through every impeccable detail, Stanly Ranch was designed to create lasting memories.”
Stanly Ranch offers bold and heartfelt experiences that center around the spirit of discovery on its more than 700-acres of verdant landscape. It aims to thrill the senses, ignite curiosity, and foster a deeper connection between the land and the community. By unlocking a new side of Napa, Auberge invites guests to embark on a journey of exploration and unveil the hidden gems of the region. Stanly Ranch is where adventure and authenticity converge, fulfilling Auberge’s mission of creating one-of-a-kind experiences in extraordinary places that nourish mind, body and soul.
