A photo diary of the perfect weekend in Napa Valley
An idyllic getaway for wine connoisseurs and foodies alike, Napa Valley is the perfect place for a weekend escape. Our travel concierges have curated the ideal itinerary to give you a peek inside some hidden gems in this picturesque region.
“We spent an incredible long weekend in Napa at Equity Estates’ property within the phenomenal Calistoga Ranch. The property is truly unique and exceptional. It is extremely well located for both major attractions in Napa Valley– wine tasting and restauranting. The resort is architecturally impressive and the unit combines outdoor and indoor living harmoniously, giving the feel of luxury and space. The service was first rate.Thanks to a fantastic effort by Stephanie, our EE Personal Travel Concierge, and Nora, the EE Local Host, we experienced the most unbelievable few days of wine tasting on record. They arranged visits to several wineries that have limited access and even arranged a driver for us to get around safely and comfortably. All in all, a fantastic property and the perfect place for a long weekend getaway!” –Equity Estates Investor Steven B.
