What an amazing past week it has been here in Napa Valley with temperatures in the high 70s – 80s. We experienced an unusually hot the week prior to that, topping out around 112 one day (!), so we’re crossing our fingers that the hot spell is over and we can continue on with this perfect summer weather. With the 4th of July just around the corner, we’re really looking forward to some good old fashioned American BBQ, fireworks, pool time, cool drinks and of course the legendary Calistoga parade.
If you’ve driven up valley via the Silverado Trail lately, you no doubt have noticed the Four Seasons Napa Valley site, located on the eastern side of the Trail and nestled in the surrounding vineyards. With the weather finally cooperating, construction is well underway and things are moving along at a swift pace, albeit most of the progress is underground for the time being. That said, we are slated to begin pouring foundations in July with framing commencing this fall. Each of the Residences offers its own unique vantage point of the valley floor, with views of the surrounding vineyards and Mayacama and Vaca Mountain ranges. Pairing each residence with its rightful owner has been a fulfilling endeavor – but one that will soon come to an end with only 7 homes remaining.

With interest so high and 13 of the original 20 residences already sold, the developer has made the decision to increase the pricing of our 3 bedroom residences from $4.25MM to $4.5MM. The date this increase will take place is July 19, so a small window of opportunity still remains to take advantage of the original pricing. If you are interested in discussing this unique offering, please reply to this email or call me anytime.

As always, I appreciate your business as well as your referrals. Kindly let me know if I can help in any way.

CONSTELLATION PURCHASES CULT WINERY SCHRADER CELLARS

group shot

After last month’s list of large acquisitions in the wine world, we thought we might be done for a while… not the case! In another exciting purchase this month, Constellation Brands announced it has acquired Napa Valley cult winery Schrader Cellars for an undisclosed sum (undisclosed only for now, being that Constellation is a publicly traded company). Schrader Cellars produces between 2500-4000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon. Being that this is one of our absolute favorite wineries in the valley, we were happy to hear that the agreement is for the new owners to leave the operation and brand alone. Huge congratulations to Fred and Carol Schrader and of course, Thomas Brown! Click here to read more about this tremendous acquisition.

CHARTER OAK IS FINALLY OPEN – AND IT’S AMAZING

group shot

We feel like we’ve been waiting forever for the new restaurant on Charter Oak Avenue (also named Charter Oak) in St. Helena to open. Ever since Tra Vigne closed, and once we heard the spectacular news that chef Christoper Kostow (the three-Michelin-starred chef of the Restaurant at Meadowood) would be owning/running this new restaurant, we’ve been chomping at the bit to try it out. Which we did… and as expected, it was well worth the wait. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation asap. The article below is pretty spot on and even features a sample menu to add to the excitement. Check it out.

NAPA VALLEY PEACHES!

If there is one thing Napa Valley does almost as well as it does grapes… it’s peaches! If you have never purchased a Napa Valley peach at the corner of Silverado Trail and Deer Park Road, you’re missing out. From May until September, peaches are in season here – the best ones can be found at the Farmer’s Markets and on the corners of roads randomly throughout the valley – just keep your eyes peeled for them. Check out the article below for some fun information and recipes.
