Thank you to the Meritage Resort and Spa

So often in the news you hear of companies that take advantage of people in the middle of a disaster. Instead, we'd like to give thanks to a company that did just the opposite - The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa.

The Meritage has shown amazing generosity and grace to people who have been evacuated from their homes as a result of the devastating fires in Napa Valley. They have provided a comforting "home" for not only the people but also their pets that were displaced.

New looks, easier walking slated for Napa Valley Commons

After more than three decades, directors of the Napa Valley Commons are readying changes at the city’s largest office park – starting with the way its visitors get around it.

A design package approved by the corporate park’s owners’ association calls for more sidewalks and bicycle paths at the complex off the Napa-Vallejo Highway, where roads built with cars in mind now channel visitors to the Meritage Resort and Spa and other businesses once undreamed of for an business colony.

Today’s project workforce of 20 to 60 workers will grow to as many as 200 before the five new structures debut in 2018 as Meritage Commons, said project manager Tim Coon with Pacific Hospitality Group.

Tenant Profile: Bergin Glass Impressions

The Napa Valley has made its mark and built an amazing reputation as a premier wine producing region, but what many do not realize is that only 4% of California’s total wine production and four-tenths of 1% of the world’s wine comes from within the Napa Valley. With that in mind, it is incredible to believe that there are more than 450 wineries producing Napa Valley wine under even more brands and labels than ever. How does a winery differentiate their brand when there are so many coming from such a small region?

Bergin Glass Impressions (“Bergin”) knows the answer to that question and has been providing wineries with beautiful wine bottles painted and etched by hand to help wineries differentiate themselves and make consumers appreciate not only the wine inside the bottle but also the artwork on the outside of the bottle.

Benson Marketing Group (“Benson”), located at 2700 Napa Valley Corporate Drive, Suite H, was founded by Jeremy Benson in 1997 and has had an office in the Napa Valley Commons since 2002. With an office in Napa and “marketing” in the name, you might assume that this is just another small marketing firm promoting primarily local Napa wineries. What you don’t see from the outside is that Benson is actually a “micro multinational” firm with only a dozen full-time employees and offices in Napa, Manhattan and Paris.

Tenant Profile: Trinitas Cellars

For years, Tim Busch dreamed of owning a winery in Napa Valley and in 2002, his dream became a reality when Trinitas Cellars was born. Trinitas, the Latin word for Trinity, celebrates the connection between sun, soil and humanity; the trinity of elements necessary for the production of fine wine.

Initially, production for this family-owned winery included only a few varieties and about 5000 cases, but with the help of winemaker Kevin Mills, and Tim’s son, Garrett Busch, Trinitas has quickly grown to over 30,000 cases and over 17 varieties.

The owner of The Meritage Resort & Spa has purchased land across the street as part of a plan to enhance the experience for the tens of thousands of visitors the recently expanded 323-room facility brings to Napa Valley each year.

Less than a year after completing a roughly $40 million expansion that about doubled the number of rooms and brought the amount of meeting space to more than 50,000 square feet, an affiliate of Irvine-based Pacific Hospitality Group purchased 9.3 acres of vacant land directly to the north and plans to invest about $5 million late this year renovating the resort's original rooms, finished nearly seven years ago.

On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors will decide whether to enter into further negotiations with Dey Labs' corporate owners, Mylan Inc., that could lead the county to buy the 25-acre property and the 154,500 square feet of building space that once housed one of Napa County's largest employers.
