CALISTOGA, Calif., Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Developer of Napa Valley's exclusive Residences at the award-winning Calistoga Ranch, an Auberge Resort and home to the signature Vintner Program, announced today that more sales were closed in 2010 than in the past two years combined.
"We are thrilled by the sales success of 2010 and fully expect to see continued growth in 2011," said Coni Thornburg, General Manager of Calistoga Ranch. "We are seeing confidence in the marketplace and in the established Auberge Resorts brand. Buyers want to invest in quality, which is a hallmark of this Auberge property. We attribute our success to several key factors, including our private up-valley setting, our Vintner Program, unique signature events, world-class amenities, true authenticity, and our developers' commitment that the property is 100% complete and debt free. These factors, in conjunction with the known quality of the Auberge brand, make The Lodges at Calistoga Ranch one of the most desirable real estate opportunities in Napa Valley."
Exceptional programs such as the Vintner Member Program, offering owners unprecedented access to a select group of the most iconic and innovative winemaking families and wineries in the region, as well as more than 100 signature events a year including culinary demonstrations with award-winning chef Gary Danko and Master Sommelier Andrea Immer Robinson, both Calistoga Ranch owners, are an added draw for buyers. Owners at Calistoga Ranch are allowed privileged access to miles of hiking trails in the thousand mile preserve surrounding the Ranch and through a recent partnership with Elite Alliance,(SM) access to an exquisite collection of top tier properties and luxurious homes in some of the most coveted destinations in the world.
Joshua Dempsey, Director of Sales at The Lodges at Calistoga Ranch believes that "today's buyer is much more thoughtful and diligent about their purchase decisions. Seeing this kind of success in today's market is a true testament to the product and unique lifestyle offered at Calistoga Ranch. We believe strong sales are a direct reflection of the high level of execution on the ground and the continued enhancement of signature programs available to owners at Calistoga Ranch. We are encouraged by our success and optimistic about the future."
