As Napa Valley’s first and only resort set within a working winery, Four Seasons’ new property will offer a superb hospitality experience centred on exceptional food, wine and spirits, plus wellness-inspired amenities, authentic service, and an approachable yet elevated environment akin to its locale in the charming town of Calistoga.
“Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley marks a significant milestone for our brand as we expand our California collection with the introduction of the first Four Seasons resort within a working winery, offering an array of opportunities to elevate the guest experience through immersive programming,” says Vince Parrotta, President, Hotel Operations – Americas West, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Offering authentic, exceptional experiences that reflect the destinations in which we operate is a priority for our brand and for our guests.”
Located at 400 Silverado Trail, the resort is situated in the historic, charming town of Calistoga, tucked into the base of Mount Saint Helena at the top of Napa Valley and surrounded by hundreds of acres of vineyards.
Its accommodation spans 85 spacious rooms, suites and villas boasting striking views, fireplaces, private terraces, and design by one of the world’s most celebrated interior designers, Napa-based Erin Martin, in conjunction with Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA).

This includes The Estate Villa, a nearly 3,400-square-foot (315 square metres) free-standing building nestled at the edge of the on-site vineyard, which features indoor-outdoor living and dining, a private garden, and a swimming pool.
Led by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Erik Anderson, TRUSS Restaurant + Bar is befitting of Napa Valley’s legendary culinary scene, bringing a spirited, modern fine dining experience with a farm-fresh à la carte menu, genuine hospitality, an elevated yet laidback indoor-outdoor environment, and sweeping views of the Calistoga vineyards and Palisades Mountains.
Shaun Acosta, Executive Resort Chef, will oversee the open-air Campo Poolside, conveniently located between the Resort’s two picturesque pools overlooking the vineyards, serving delectable Cal-Mexican fare and poolside favourites that change with the seasons to highlight Napa Valley’s bountiful, fresh produce.
On site, Elusa Winery and its 4.7-acre (nearly 2 hectare) vineyard are protected by the Palisades Mountains and oak-covered hills. The hand-farmed vineyard celebrates the unique terroir of the Calistoga American Viticultural Area (AVA), home to some of the oldest estates in wine country.
The vineyard and winery are operated by acclaimed Napa Valley winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. With the warmest microclimate in Napa Valley, Calistoga is ideal for cabernet sauvignon grapes, and as such, Brown and his team of viticulture experts designed and replanted the on-site vineyard to accentuate the flavour of those grapes.
Spa Talisa, meanwhile, is an homage to Calistoga’s 150-year history as a spa and wellness destination. A haven for relaxation and indulgence, the spa boasts eight well-appointed treatment rooms for an array of intuitive and therapeutic practices, as well as a variety of al fresco experiences, including private patios with steam decks used for the locally-inspired steam experience – an authentic Calistoga ritual.
