Hinsdale, IL (Sept. 25) — USA Today recently spotlighted a growing “appetite for elite culinary adventures” among individuals inspired by wine, food and travel. Private vineyard tours, winemaker seminars and in-home dining events led by top chefs are the essential elements in upscale travel itineraries.
The rise of this total-access trend is the catalyst of a new alliance between HinsdaleCellars.com, the online source for premium wine gifts, and luxury vacation homes management agency BeautifulPlaces.
The promotional agreement means Hinsdale Cellars’ connoisseur clients will receive a 10% discount on weekly published rates when placing a reservation for one of 35 premier wine country villas and chateaus offered through BeautifulPlaces. This is the first important step toward planning travel across the major winemaking regions of northern California and France.
The discount is readily applied when a Hinsdale Cellars referral submits a promotional code (HCELLARS).
“Serious collectors of premium wine maintain very high standards and demand total immersion in the world’s leading wine regions,” said Hinsdale Cellars co-founder Steve Woodward. “We know that any luxury property selected from the BeautifulPlaces roster will meet or exceed our customers’ standards every time.”
Former brand marketing executive Patrick Smith created BeautifulPlaces: Vacation Homes of Distinction in 2003. The homes, principally in Sonoma County wine country, are not simply rentals in which typical tourists sleep off a day of overindulgence.
We combine the services and amenities of a small luxury hotel with the comfort, splendor and privacy of magnificent Wine Country homes to create a truly unique and memorable vacation or business meeting experience, Smith explains.
These properties are beyond exceptional. Location, design and furnishings are unsurpassed, but these make up only one part of the equation. The core of BeautifulPlaces success is its zealous attention to detail and service, from arranging credible nannies, to scheduling private chefs or assuring exclusive access to a private winery or spa, to scoring a tough tee time for a memorable round of golf. Presently, there are 35 homes available to lease through BeautifulPlaces and its co-brand, Country Sojourns. Rates per week range from $2,500 to more than $60,000. At the higher end, choices include the 18-room Chateau Villette near Versailles in France on 185 acres. The entire lineup can be reviewed at the BeautifulPlaces or Country Sojourns web sites.
Hinsdale Cellars clients who reserve and stay in one of these inspired properties before the end of 2007 also will be eligible to earn a $100 gift certificate when referencing promotional code HCELLARS.
