New Vineyards, Resorts Threaten Napa Valley’s Water Supply

In the winter of 2015, a Hong Kong real estate conglomerate purchased the Calistoga Hills Resort, at the northern end of the Napa Valley, for nearly $80 million. Today, mature oaks and conifers cover the 88-acre property, which flanks the eastern slope of the Mayacamas Mountains. But soon, 8,000 trees will be cut, making way for 110 hotel rooms, 20 luxury homes, 13 estate lots and a restaurant. Room rates will reportedly start at $1,000 a night and the grounds will include amenities like a pool, spas, outdoor showers and individual plunge pools outside select guest rooms.

My highlight reel is long. Some of the standouts include my visits to Manresa (believe the hype-it really is a special place) and Love Apple Farm, the restaurant's biodynamic farm in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
