Wine, Food & Travel

Looking for the perfect get-away with stunning scenery, superb food and world-class wine? 

First stop is Napa Valley. Explore all Napa has to offer from vintage wine tastings to hot air balloon rides over the valley. Enjoy the lap of luxury at Auberge de Soliel resort, restaurant and spa or the exclusive Foley Johnson Winery in the heart of Napa Valley.                          

Perhaps no other winery captures the casual luxury of Sonoma County better than Chalk Hill Estate. Founded nearly four decades ago, this spectacular 1300-acre property features 300 acres of vineyards, wilderness areas, winery, hospitality center, culinary garden, residence, stables, equestrian pavilion, sports fields, fishing and swimming ponds, and guest houses.

Cycle through the Alsace Wine Route in France and enjoy a unique experience as you explore a part of the region that is nestled between the beautiful Vosges mountains in France and the borders of Germany and Switzerland. Alsace is a region rich in tradition, culture and charm. The famous Route du Vin (wine route) encompasses at least 100 wine producing villages between Strasbourg and Colmar, creating some of the best French wines. This region also offers gourmet cuisine and has more Michelin star restaurants than any other region.

Marlborough’s Awatere Valley is a fusion of awesome scenery and exquisite wines. Visitors love Awatere for its rolling river benches, precise vineyards, natural habitats and Tapuae-O-Uenuku, the 10,000 foot peak that frames and protects the region. Winemakers love Awatere for its combination of cool, dry, growing conditions and shale soils formed millions of years ago by relentless glaciers. Explore the magnificent Wharekauhau Lodge (pronounced "forry-co-ho") which is one of the world's most exclusive and memorable retreats along with Vavasour, one of the oldest wineries in Martinborough, New Zealand.

The Foley Food and Wine Society is an exclusive society dedicated to uniting three of life's biggest passions world-class wine, exceptional cuisine and outstanding destinations. "Together, wine, food, and travel make up three of life's greatest offerings." For more information or to sign up for membership click here
