The Spa at the Estate Yountville recently underwent the largest renovation in the Napa Valley area, including a rebranding of the entire 22-acre property. 

"We wanted to completely reimagine the idea of luxury in Yountville and provide our guests with an experience unlike any other in the area," says Terry Prager, executive director of spa & wellness. "Our private suites have been thoughtfully designed with luxury in mind featuring indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a relaxing lounge area, steam showers, sauna and outdoor soaking baths. Touches such as these ensure our guests can relax in a luxurious and serene environment."

The Estate Yountville offers a variety of signature experiences, some of which can be customized for groups. Rosé All Day, one of the newest packages, provides guests a 50-minute Inner Calm Massage with Restorative Rose essential oil, a 50-minute Youthful Boost Facial, along with a complimentary Knesko Rose Gold eye mask and a glass of chilled Silver Trident Rosé served with fresh strawberries.

When your group isn't enjoying Rosé All Day, team-building retreats are also available. "The redesign of the spa has allowed for a reception area that has doubled in height, creating space for an abundance of light and volume. Your group will feel welcomed the minute you enter the spa," Prager says. "If groups are planning a stay over several days, we also offer an in-room self-care program for guest to soak in the pleasures of wellness right in their room. Offerings include ESPA’s Restorative In-Room Diffuser along with a full-size ESPA Restorative Bath Oil, EPSA’s Invigorating Shower Gel, Salt & Oil, and more!"

With so many offerings, Prager says The Suites Experiences are the most popular. They allow guests to enjoy serene private suites with their own showers and bath tubs. The most popular time to visit is Harvest Season: August through October.

"This is the time when guests can get a glimpse at how some of their favorite wines are made and a time when they have spectacular weather to enjoy. We offer many on-site experiences including Wellness: Yoga at the Estate where guest can enjoy an instructor-led session every Friday and Saturday morning and Croquet on the Lawn for guests to play a casual game of croquet or corn hole while enjoying a glass of Frosé on Sundays. It’s best to book groups as far in advance as possible," Prager says.

Catalina Island, consistently ranked one of the best island getaways by various media outlets, has always been a tourist destination. But in the past few years, the island's new additions of meeting facilities and other accommodations have transformed the island from a popular vacation spot to a desirable meeting destination. 

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
