Mendocino Land and Sea Package
Two iconic properties-One amazing escape
To truly immerse yourself in the magic that is Mendocino, a visit to both the bucolic Anderson Valley wine country, as well as the rugged Northern Coast is necessary. This winter, in partnership with the Anderson Valley’s most sought-after agriturismo destination, The Madrones, Mendocino’s Brewery Gulch Inn is offering the ultimate Land and Sea escape.
Your package begins with a two-night stay at The Madrones in the Anderson Valley. Reflecting the vision of designer and lifestyle entrepreneur Jim Roberts, this Mediterranean compound has established itself as a community outpost for local artisans. Home to four vintners (Bink Wines, Drew Family Cellars, Knez Winery, and Signal Ridge); the rural lifestyle shop Sun & Cricket; an artisanal wood-fired restaurant, Stone & Embers; a culinary kitchen garden for local produce; and several estate guest quarters overlooking serene courtyards, vineyards and carefully manicured English gardens, The Madrones and its artisan partners have created an Anderson Valley destination that offers a slice of localized country living with a focus on the region’s wine, food, arts and beauty. Included with your stay at the Madrones:
|• 2 night accommodations in one of their Estate guest quarters suites
• A 3-course dinner for two at Stone and Embers
• A glass of local wine while enjoying a fireside chat and demonstration by Chef Patrick Meany as he discusses his
techniques in working with the wood-fired oven in the Stone and Embers kitchen (reservation necessary)
• Two tasting passes for all four tasting rooms located on property and a complimentary bottle of wine from one of the vintners
• Winery tour and barrel tasting at Balo Vineyards
• A keepsake gift from Sun & Cricket
On day three, continue your journey along Highway 128 and marvel at the 12 miles of redwoods you pass through before reaching Highway 1 and the Pacific. Just 9 miles north along Highway 1, you will reach the Brewery Gulch Inn, your Mendocino home for the next two nights.
Perched high on a bluff top overlooking Smuggler’s Cove and the Pacific Ocean, the Brewery Gulch Inn is a one-of-a-kind bed-and-breakfast property that reigns cathedral-like over the dramatic Northern Mendocino coast. Constructed in 2001 from 150-year old redwood reclaimed from the nearby Big River, this architectural masterpiece boasts a 15-foot cathedral ceiling in the Great Room, complete with a stunning, four-sided glass-and-steel fireplace, 10 romantic rooms with all the modern amenities, three extraordinary acres of mature pines and redwoods, wooded glens, wetland ponds, gardens, and a plethora of blooming rhododendrons, and a full-time executive chef that will tempt your taste buds with an extensive array of culinary offerings, from a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast to an innovative dinner buffet, both of which focus on locally-sourced, organic ingredients. Included with your stay at Brewery Gulch Inn:
|• 2 night accommodations in an ocean-view corner king featuring a two-person tub, private deck,
gas fireplace and a flat panel television/DVD player
• Full cooked-to-order breakfast each morning
• Buffet dinner with local wines and beers each evening
• $50.00 credit at the ocean-view restaurant Wild Fish
