A vineyard and a destination spa
Godspeed Vineyards is an artisan grower in the Mt. Veeder Appellation of Napa Valley situated at an altitude of 1500ft. At their Mt. Veeder estate, Larry Striker has over time sold his world-class fruit to recognized wineries including Ed Sbragia, Mayacamas, Robert Craig, William Hill, and Newton & Monticello. Since 1990 Larry has taken advantage of his exceptional vineyard by bottling half his production under his own label. Three wines are produced at Godspeed: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Trinity. All three are made in a very elegant, almost “European” style with an emphasis on the vineyard’s unique micro-climate, as expressed in the wine’s balance and fruit element.
The vineyard is the project of the Larry Stricker family. Larry is an acclaimed architect who has created world-class resort hotels, including the Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona; the Marriott Desert Springs Resort and a series of Hawaiian properties including the Halekulani, Kahala Resort, Kapalua Bay Hotel and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. Saga Fitness worked with Larry Striker to design and develop destination spa facilities and programs at his hotel projects.
A great destination hotel and spa is the result of planning, creative design, and good management. A great wine starts with the soil and attention to detail at each step of the wine making process. Larry continues to merge these skills is his architecture and wine making. Click here for additional information about Godspeed Vineyards: http://www.godspeedvineyards.webs.com
