Fine wine, exquisite culinary creations and the relaxed, luxurious atmosphere of The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance® Resort & Spa combined to create a delightful weekend in the Sonoma Valley.
Cardmembers and their guests began this exclusive experience at a cocktail reception with Emmy® Award–winning chef Michael Chiarello at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. The star chef shared his signature style with an interactive cooking demonstration, followed by an exceptional four-course menu, perfectly paired with wines from the region's premier vineyards.
On Saturday, guests explored wine country with a full day of tours and tastings, hosted by James Beard Award-Winning Author, Jordan Mackay. The day was topped off with a roving reception at the award-winning Carneros Bistro, with dishes specially designed and prepared by Chef Andrew Wilson.
To mark the end of this incredible weekend cardmembers enjoyed a private farewell breakfast buffet, with time to experience the resort's many amenities and the incredible beauty of the valley.
