Don and Rhonda Carano’s vision is completed as Vintners Inn becomes Vintners Resort 20 years after their initial purchase; Local media and community are invited for a ribbon-cutting and reception on February 18 at 4:30 p.m.
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (February 5, 2020)— What began as a 44-room inn on 40 acres of vineyards in the Russian River Valley has evolved into what will now be officially known as Vintners Resort: a full-service hospitality experience surrounded by 92 acres of vineyards, complete with a 78-room hotel featuring a courtyard and vineyard view rooms, a full-service event center, multiple wedding venues, the award-winning John Ash & Co. Restaurant, River Vine Restaurant, John Ash & Co. Catering, The Front Room Bar & Lounge and the state-of-the-art Vi La Vita Spa.
Vintners Resort General Manager Percy Brandon invites his Sonoma County neighbors to join him in celebrating a ribbon-cutting reception on February 18, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. in partnership with the Santa Rosa Chamber to reveal the new marquee, followed by a wine and appetizer reception at 5 p.m.
Local media are invited to attend the event and can RSVP by emailing [email protected].
The name ushers in a few more changes for the resort, including the appointment of a concierge to elevate the guest experience. Christopher Carrillo, who was previously the maître d at John Ash & Co. restaurant, will design custom itineraries for guests, assist with dining recommendations and reservations, spa appointments, transportation, floral arrangements, gift baskets, concert and special events tickets, wine country excursions and experiences, and more. The resort also debuted a new vineyard table nestled between rows of their surrounding vineyards, which will serve as an event venue. Other new guest experiences include upgraded in-room complimentary snack and beverage amenities.
Vi La Vita Spa opened its doors in fall 2018, complete with an indoor and outdoor plunge pools, five treatment rooms, steam saunas, a wellness relaxation lounge, a shopping boutique and a fitness center. Thirty-four additional vineyard view rooms and suites were also completed in late 2018, bringing the total number of rooms at Vintners Inn to 78.
River Vine, which had its origin as a casual continental breakfast option, grew into a breakfast café that officially opened its doors in July of 2017. The restaurant is now a full-service dining experience offering breakfast, lunch and brunch seven days a week.
The 10,000 square-foot Vintners Inn Event Center opened in 2006, creating a purpose-built luxury event space. Today, the resort is a favorite for couples seeking a wine country wedding and a highly sought-after venue for other corporate and social events. The property includes 14 venues and meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 300 guests.
