Mary Novak and Beth Novak Milliken of Spottswoode and hoteliers and brothers George and Andre Schwarz of the Post Hotel in Lake Louise, Canada look forward to guiding you through this best of both worlds experience.
Napa Valley will reveal its splendor to you as you and your guests enter the historic Spottswoode Estate through the famous stone pillar entry gates and into Mary’s formal gardens for a spectacular vineyard-view dinner created by Post Hotel executive chef Hans Sauter. Hans has many years of experience working with Spottswoode wines, so the pairings will be sublime. To create the Canadian connections that will make your trip to the Post Hotel feel like a homecoming, George and Rosalie Schwarz will be joining you for this evening.
When your travel northward beckons, three couples will be picked up from the Calgary airport for an incredible three-night getaway at the Relais & Châteaux Post Hotel in the season of your choice, depending on whether you prefer the stunning Canadian Rockies in their snowy winter awe or summer alpine appeal. The breathtaking beauty of Banff National Park will act as backdrop for either skiing or fly fishing, dog-sledding, hiking or biking in the pine-scented air.
Whatever the outdoor activity, you’ll return to the Old World charm and five-star standards of hospitality and culinary excellence for which the Post Hotel is known. Relax in the wood-paneled library, enjoy tea and a book by the many river rock fireplaces, sink into the balm of spa treatments and enjoy intimate meals with Beth Novak Milliken and the Schwarz family, accompanied by Spottswoode wines, as well as special wines drawn from one of Canada’s most noted cellars.
The winning bidder will take home five vintages (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) of the Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon, in 750ml, magnum and double magnum format, so as to follow their progress in these different-sized bottles.
The Novak and Schwarz families are honored to offer this lot at Auction Napa Valley–we look forward to having you join us for what promises to be an amazing experience, both here in Napa Valley and in the Canadian Rockies!
