Events Worth Traveling For

Meritage Collection Events offer experiences unlike any other in the world. We’ve formed impeccable alliances that blend together premier resorts, personal amenities, renowned wineries, and the pure love of travel. From our close partnerships with the Foley Food & Wine Society to Fumanelli Wineries, our AAA Four Diamond Resorts celebrate travel, food, wine, and, most importantly, life with exceptional events all year long.

About the Meritage Collection

Our Renowned California Resorts

The Meritage Collection was founded from the premise that life should stimulate the soul, reinvigorate the spirit, and enlighten the mind. From the rustic wineries of Napa Valley, to the classic piers of Newport Beach, to the breathtaking beaches of Santa Barbara, and the award-winning gardens of La Jolla, the Collection provides inspiring experiences at California’s best resorts. No matter which resort you choose, you’ll discover a uniquely tailored experience and an innovative approach to life and style beyond expectations.

We’re proud of our AAA 4-Diamond California resorts, which include:

  • The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley
  • Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara
  • Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach
  • Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa in La Jolla

Our Winery Partnerships

The Meritage Collection continues to surpass the typical resort experience through our alliance with several wineries from around the world. We’ve partnered with the Foley Food and Wine Society, which offers tasting rooms at our California resorts, as well as exclusive events for resort guests. With wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Lake County, the Central Coast, Pacific Northwest, and New Zealand, Foley Family Wines features a unique wine portfolio at our California resorts. They complement our luxury properties, all which live up to the Foley standards of quality, individual identity, style, and distinctive personality.

Furthermore, the Meritage Collection features Trinitas Cellars, located 40 feet underground at The Meritage Resort and Spa. Here, we celebrate the connection among sun, soil, and humanity by working closely with its grower society throughout Northern California. Some of the wines come from historical vineyards in Northern California, where a number of vineyards are over a century old.
