From October 27 through 29, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley hosted a select few top media members for an immersive first look at the resort’s newly debuted Polestar house car program. The program invites guests to ride and drive in sustainable style with the fully electric Polestar 2, featuring the debut of Google’s in-car “infotainment” system, and the Polestar 1 performance GT model.
The Polestar cars were charged on-property and made available to guests for complimentary drives and/or chauffeured rides on a first come, first served basis. This was my first opportunity to experience the newest Polestar cars and learn more about the collaboration between these like-minded industry leaders. The partnership strengthens their shared goals to deliver luxury experiences without compromise.
Driving through the beautiful rolling hills and vineyards of Napa Valley in a sustainable luxury Polestar car was a true joy. This partnership eliminates the need for a rental car and allows for a seamless vacation experience for all guests seeking unforgettably stylish stays.
The event included a 2-night stay in luxurious accommodations amid the vineyards at Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley, the ride-and-drive experience in the latest Polestar cars, a wine tasting at Elusa Winery amid its 4.7-acre organic vineyard, and exceptional meals and culinary experiences at Truss Restaurant and Auro.
The 7-course tasting menu dinner at Auro was amazing. We were able to watch the kitchen staff prepare the entire meal through the huge glass windows. For a culinary buff, this was a real treat for me. I took advantage of the opportunity to go inside the kitchen with executive chef Rogelio Garcia. I also had the chance to relax and explore the Four Seasons Residences, then get a deluxe massage at Spa Talisa on the day of my departure.
Located in Calistoga with 85 guestrooms and suites, the recently opened Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley is at one with the countryside, boasting countless opportunities for open-air dining and activities while being surrounded by mountain and vineyard views. The Polestar house cars are an inviting addition to the resort’s distinctive amenities which include grape-to-glass winemaking and tastings at Elusa Winery, dining at Truss Restaurant & Bar, holistic wellness at Spa Talisa, the fully supervised Kids for All Seasons program, and two expansive pools within the vineyard. The resort’s concierge team is available to curate local excursions and itineraries for guests to explore the wine country using the Polestar house cars.
“We are very proud to partner with Polestar, offering an exclusive opportunity for guests to drive in sustainable style or ride as a part of our complimentary house car service,” said Mehdi Eftekari, general manager of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley. “Polestar is focused on exceptional design and refined performance, making this collaboration a natural fit for our property and further enhancing the wine country experience. Whether they are looking to enjoy a short jaunt to a neighbourhood restaurant or a longer journey to an acclaimed winery, transport with Polestar cars makes for joyful driving and riding from the resort and allows guests to take full advantage of Napa Valley’s idyllic views, vineyard scenery, and stunning wine country locale.”
