Several luxury hotel properties, including Meadowood Napa Valley and Calistoga Ranch, Auberge Resorts Collection, have been damaged by the Glass Fire, one of several in California’s Bay Area/wine region.
According to ABC 7 News, as thousands of residents fled their homes in Calistoga Monday, much of the property at Meadowood Napa Valley resort was damaged or destroyed by the fire. The main building, which housed the three Michelin-starred Restaurant at Meadowood, was reduced to rubble, the report said.
Christopher Kostow, the executive chef of The Restaurant at Meadowood, posted on his Instagram: “We are all torn apart. A Eulogy is deserved, and will be given in due time… for now, I want to thank all of the TRAMily that have ever graced this magical space—and all of the guests over the years who have enjoyed the efforts of these multitudes. What an honor it has been. Martina and I wish our broader, Napa community safety and courage during this devastating time.
According to Meadowood’s website, it was instructed by the Napa County Sheriff’s Office to temporarily close prior to the fire. For immediate assistance, email [email protected]; the hotel is not currently accepting future reservations.
Calistoga Ranch, about 15 minutes away, was also badly damaged by the fire. “At this time, we know the resort has been extensively damaged by the fire,” Calistoga Ranch spokesperson Jessica Rothschild told SFGATE. “We are working closely with Cal Fire to assess the full extent of the damage and will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
All hotel staff and guests were safely evacuated on Sunday. On its website, Calistoga Ranch says, “Please note that our resort is currently closed. Our reservations team will be in touch with you regarding your upcoming reservation. For immediate inquiries please call 877-312-0464.”
