Meritage Resort & Spa

Napa, CA 94558

We're back at the Meritage Resort & Spa for 2015!  Situated just a few minutes away from downtown Napa, the Meritage is a great location for networking and for enjoying all that Napa has to offer.  Not only are you a few minutes away from some of the best wineries in the country, but you're just steps away from enjoying wine tasting, right on property, in the Estate Cave, featuring wines from Trinitas Cellars.  If you’re not in the mood for wine, book one of the many services available at the Spa Terra or get in a round of golf at the nearby course.  Take the free Meritage shuttle to downtown Napa and take a ride on the Wine Train, or reserve a table at one of the many restaurants famed for their farm to table cuisine.

 Chef Mike C.
Back by popular demand, we're taking our guests back to Cedar Gables Inn for another exciting cooking class.

This year, our guests will get the opportunity to cook with Chef Mike C.  From growing up in the wine country of Western New York to living large in Berkeley, Chef Mike C. slices and dices his way into your kitchen. By the ripe old age of four, he was already in the kitchen practicing his brand of food alchemy. Through the mentorship of his parents, he learned the finer aspects of organic gardening, simplified cuisine, and home entertaining for all occasions. By the end of high school, Mike C. had found his mission in life; to teach the world how to come back to the table with friends, family, food and fun. Since arriving in California, he has owned two catering businesses, started "Party Lifestyle" with its website, TV show, magazine and live shows.  He’s directed two cooking schools and in 2005 opened "Kitchen on Fire," a home chef cooking school, with a philosophy of fantastic food, people, and the demystification of home cooking and entertaining.  www.kitchenonfire.com.  The registration fee for this event includes the cooking class, lunch, a special gift from Cedar Gables Inn, as well as transportation.

*A minimum of 8 guests must register for this event.  If the minimum number is not met, then the event will be canceled.

If you like to golf, IAPSC recommends hitting the course at Eagle Vines Golf Club, located just 5 minutes form the Meritage Resort & Spa.  To reserve your tee time, call the Eagle Vines Golf Club at 707-257-4470.
